We've been working to get the house ready. It makes it nice to be able to enjoy the house, all gussied up and pretty. I really like when we have people over, and it seems this is one time a year we can do a party & enjoy visiting for a day.
We are doing a few different things with the munchies this year. We are trying to trim costs a bit since Lee has fewer hours. The commute for me to Sutherlin daily is also an added expense we didn't use to have.
I will still have another week of school, as will Connor, after Open House, but Trevor & Diana are in finals week (Diana finished yesterday). Trevor is going to the college to sell back books today.
I have been busy every night this week, but it's all stuff I want to do!! I have monthly meetings for different things and they all hit the same week this year - just before Open House.
If there was any chance my classroom could survive without me a day, I'd take a personal day, but it's sooo touchy in there right now it would be really detrimental to the students for me to be gone :/ As it is, we're still trying to figure out how the staff can even get away for a 1/2 hour lunch break (sometimes I get one - but usually I'm still watching a student). My poor teacher hasn't had a real lunch breaks since we started getting students a month ago. *sigh* Still working out bumps in this program!!
I need the Open House for my mental sanity! Cleaning is good therapy too :) As is baking! I'll accept hugs at the door - thanks much :)
