Spring Break Cannot Come Soon Enough

Reasons I know that spring break is on its way:
1. Children are making "soap-beards" in the restroom at school.
2. Students are chasing each other with tree branches on the playground.
3. My classroom walls are absorbing more information from my teaching than my students are.
4. My house gets more clutter filled by the day and I am unable to keep up with it.
5. I have fallen asleep by 8:30 p.m. on the couch the last 3 nights in a row.


  1. The soap beards are killing me, that is hilarious! I thought those kinds of things only happened to me. I'm with you, Spring Break needs to be here already. My house is a mess, and I can't seem to muster up enough energy to clean it...

  2. i'm with you girls... I am so embarassed someone is going to pop in for a visit and see my 4 days worth of coffee mugs in the sink... bills all over the table... dirty bibs on the floor next to the high chair... if only I could muster the strength to empty the beautifully clean dishes from the dishwasher.... ugh. My students have taken to laughing hysterically over ANYTHING and EVERYTHING lately, and they are so hard to get back into control... I apparently am slow on the uptake, I never get the joke. I could say the would "fork" and they are rolling with laughter....

    ... oh, and I'm in bed by 8 or 8:30 unless it is completly crucial to the world that I pretend I still have energy and must be present somewhere...
