Things Are Coming Along

This week has been an exciting week for me.  Getting to get in to my classroom for the first time felt amazing - but then I was hit with the realization that there was so much work to be done in order for my classroom to be ready.

On Tuesday, I showed you what I saw when I first walked in.  The room was completely bare except for the furniture.  I knew I had my work cut out for me - and it wasn't going to be something I could accomplish in a day or two.

Yesterday, Peanut and I went up there and spent the entire day working.  Well, OK, let me rephrase that.  We spent 6 hours working in there.  That sounds like a long time, I guess... but for what we got accomplished - it really wasn't.

Now, I have some updated pics to share... I'll show you the comparison from Monday when I was there to yesterday - after our hard work. 
The bulletin boards before

And that's about it.  We got the bulletin board decorated, and we unstacked the desks and chairs.  We also got a lot of sorting stuff done and laminating, but it's really hard to show pictures of there was more done than just putting some paper and border on some bulletin boards.

Today, I have to take all three kids to some form of appointment.  Peanut and Butter have wellness check-ups at their doctor's office, and Jelly has a dentist appointment to get her teeth cleaned.  Because of that, there will be no work in my classroom done today. 

Tomorrow, though, Peanut and I will be back up there pounding away at getting my classroom ready to go.  Peanut has told me that she envisions herself inside an episode of Extreme Makeover: Classroom Edition.  She's really liking having her hand in the creation that is unfolding - and that makes me happy.

That's basically all I have to report today, because I'm so crunched for time before I have to head out the door... but wanted you all to see what's going on with me.

I will say, before I go, that there hasn't been any visits to the gym, thus far, but I have been really getting some weight work in with the amount of heavy boxes I've lifted...and climbing up and down off of chairs...and walking up and down hallways.   Also, eating hasn't been perfect - but it's been OK.  Hubby has been keeping his word about cooking healthy dinners this week.  I just haven't been drinking as much water as I should be.  I really am going to try and be a lot better with that today - and from now on.

Alright, gotta run...

Till next time. ;)

  1. Your classroom looks so cute! It must be such a surreal experience to be decorating your own classroom. I imagine sometimes how I will feel when I finally get my own office one day down the road. It's so exciting!!

    Hope all of your appointments were less traumatic than yesterday's! Get to the gym, girl! Drink you water!! You got this!!


Tell me what's on your mind - I love to hear from you!
