I have had my surgery on my mind since I was trying to sleep last night. Today is the last day I can take most pain relievers before surgery. So I only have 10 days and I have a lot going on. We have report cards, parent conferences, a shower for one of my co workers, 2 inservice days, a library board meeting and I think that it is. In between all that I need to get my sub plans done for the 2 weeks I'm going to be out of school. I've never been out of school for this long of a time before. So that's stressing me out a little bit. I also want to get some meals premade in the freezer so Chris and I can eat while I'm out. Not that Chris can't cook but I think we'll get tired of grilled cheeses and soups. Plus it would just make me feel better to have some meals in the freezer. I should probably get the house all cleaned up.Anyway, I'm getting a little nervous and scared about surgery and everything that goes with it. I'm trying to just give it over to God. I know that he'll take care of everything but it's hard to do.
I wanted to explain my music choices as well. My aunt gave me the Jackson 5 greatest hits right before I first started teaching. It is pretty upbeat and a great way to start the day off. I use to play quiet relaxing music but I've read that that just puts kids to sleep. So we try to get energized in the mornings. Not that they need a lot of help in that area. We also listen to a lot of Dr. Jean. She's my favorite to play and sing a long with.
So that's where I'm at this month. Hopefully I'll be back tomorrow with a post all about the centennial at my school. It was a pretty cool experience. Meanwhile, be sure to check out the other posts over at Oh' Boy 4th Grade.
