Well, tomorrow is it. The day I go back to school. I admit, I am dreading it. This is Band Concert Season, which means as soon as I get back it will be in the midst of a hurricane. Since my knee is still quite painful, I'm not looking forward to running around like a chicken with my head cut off, but I don't really have much of a choice.
And of course, I haven't spent this week diligently preparing for the onslaught, rather waiting until the last possible moment to do everything I need to do to prepare. I realized I forgot to schedule this week at one of the schools (and with the school concert and dress rehearsals, I really should have given the teachers more warning), forgot to tell the kids about concert dress and what they should bring for the reception after the concert (and since I only see them once a week, it's not like I can just tell them tomorrow and have them know for Thursday), and I'll have report cards and clean up to do. At the end, we have Christmas, with traveling galore, and a wedding, which I am a bridesmaid in. Then I get back, and... nothing. No job lined up, my long-term sub is over, and here I sit, hoping for the phone to ring.
So, rather than be productive, I am fiddling with my new blog and template--looking for buttons to install, messing with fonts and colors (I still can't get the text in Century gothic. Grrr!), and generally wasting time.
So if you're anxiously awaiting tons of new, hilarious, life-affirming posts...well? You probably won't find them on this blog for a little while. In the meantime, go play with this. It's the ultimate tool for enjoyable time-wasting.
