It is that time of year---summer is about over (didn't it just start). I looked at the calendar today and two weeks from today I have to report back to school--first day with kids is 2 1/2 weeks away. Am I having panic attacks? Yeah, sometimes. I have decided that the couple weeks before school starts are the absolute worst weeks of school. I had to go to a meeting on Monday that ended up taking up my whole day and I have been able to spend quite a bit of time in my room. Somewhere along the way I got this really "great" idea to change a lot of the decor in my room---to kind of make everything match better. That "great" idea has been quite a bit of work. I've gotten quite a few things done---but I won't show them until it is all together. In order to make one of these things work, I've got to take out wooden cabinet from my room--so that is what I spent 3-4 hours yesterday, rearranging, so I would have somewhere to put all the "junk" that was inside. I honestly don't know where all this stuff come from. I wish I had taken a picture. I'm not real happy with where it all went, so I'm sure I'll be rearranging still. I'm hoping to get the room in order so I can have some time off before officially starting. And, I'm really hoping that we get a teacher hired. One of the 5th grade teachers transferred to West about 3-4 weeks ago--and we don't have a replacement yet. I made this little pennant banner yesterday. These are kind of the colors I'm going with in my room. And yes---I actually made this MYSELF. I even sewed every single little pennant onto the ribbon on my own!!!!
