I just have to say that I am tired and overwhelmed. I got to school at 8:00. Went to my new room and it had two other teachers' boxes in them. I had to move those, luckily the custodians helped a bit. Then, I had to go to my old room and move my stuff to my new room. Luckily, my husband helped for an hour. I also had 3 former students help to transport stuff from old to new. They also carried in my stuff from the van. We then started unpacking stuff. We then decided that we better go to the dungeon. This summer, our district came in and took out our lockers. During the school year, our students used them for their coats and backpacks. During the summer, we used them for storage. Thus, all of my stuff, along with others, was packed into boxes not very nicely, and thrown in the dungeon. I had to search for the locker numbers, luckily I knew them, that were written on the boxes so that I could get my stuff. Then, when we tried to lift the boxes, the bottoms fell out. Thus, what should have been a 15 minute job took almost an hour. Those 3 girls earned their lunch and dessert today. I was so thankful for them. I am also glad that they wanted to come help. I guess I do make a difference in some students' lives. Tomorrow, I am going in by myself to continue sorting and unpacking. Thursday is meetings and then I have Friday to finish. The kiddos come on Monday. Please pray for me as I am majorly stressing out. Have a great evening.
