Almost Ready

 Today we got our class lists and for the first time EVER I have an equal number of boys and girls! Woohoo! I'm still haunted by the year that I had 18 boys and 4 girls! (Yes, seriously!)

After I totally flipped out on my *husband* (Love writing that! Can you tell I'm a newlywed?!) this morning because my class was no where near done, and I was running late, and I hadn't done laundry, and I had to go to the grocery store after school....I blasted some Molly Hatchet on the way to school and found my Zen.  Ha!

My classroom is getting there. I'm trying not to be SO VERY obsessive with things looking perfect, but I may need to breathe into a paper bag if it doesn't look the way I am envisioning it in my mind. I brought my Cricut to school and even though my bestie made fun of me she eventually admitted it was pretty amazing.

After going to Office Max and Michaels I bought a Texas Two Step lotto ticket. I'm not tryin' to be greedy. It's up to $775,000- I'm ok with that! Hope everyone else's classrooms are coming along and feel free to freak out here instead of on your husband like I did! Ha!

I can't wait to be done with my class and post pictures like the rest of my blogger friends. Hang in there everyone!


  1. I had a crazy unbalanced year about four years ago. 14 boys and 5 girls. That was the longest year ever!!

  2. I had a class like that a few years ago. I liked it. I'm a little concerned about having more girls than boys. Boys get over things so much easier.

  3. okay, don't kill me, but I just got your books in the mail yesterday- boo, to me! Just wanted you to know they are on the way!

  4. I know how you are feeling. I didn't sleep last night because I laid in bed thinking of all the stuff I needed to do and we don't start for 2 more weeks!! Good luck getting it all done, it seems never ending!

  5. I can't even imagine 18 boys and 4 girls!! Hope you're getting things done...can't wait to see it all put together :)

  6. I love your energy!!! Just think you won't be fixing too many ponytails this year!
