I'm at that point in the day where I am so overwhelmed by all the STUFF (capital letter emphasis totally intended), that I just sit and stare off into space rather than actually get busy doing something ... anything.
Make a lunch
Make sure coffee maker is ready
Get clothes laid out for tomorrow
Retype unit plans
Write out weekly plans
Finish filling homework folders
Finish organizing student information
Finish ... finish ... finish ... finish ...
How is that it's only the second day of school, and I'm already stressed beyond belief? There's only like 17o days in a school year. So, by calculations, I've got approximately 168 days left of this feeling of being buried alive in hot, refuse-laden sand.
