Hot, Hot, Hot!

So it's crazily hot here in Minneapolis right now. I have to admit I'm in a newer building (built in 1996) that has air, but one of my sisters-in-law teaches elementary ESL in Minneapolis, and they have no air conditioning. "I'm sure it will be an urban fiesta of confusion and heat." She continued, "Enjoy your kid free AC meeting :)."  And I did, but whew...brain overload when you are used to hearing Mom, Mom, Mom, Mom, Mom, Mom, Mom every day instead of tech changes, AVID information, WEB information, union information, and on and on.  Even with the mental shift, it was great to be back!

We got to head to our rooms about 11am, and it was go, go, go of course :)  I missed lunch completely (I think a lot of us did today) and printed out all the things I've been working on.  I'll include it in the photos below.  I also am trying to settle some new pieces of furniture found at either the thrift store or yard sales. Gotta make it welcoming and comfy when you won't be retiring any time soon :)

Here are some of the photos from the day. Thinking of you if you are with kids...I will be soon enough!

Happy teaching!


Thomas dancing on the table during one of our last week day lunches together for a while. 
Yes, he was ready to go back to day care ha ha!

All set the night before. Diapers, check!
Final things I had brought home over the summer, check!

A new-to-me side table and ottoman (two of those) from a near-by yard sale. $5 together!

A WHOLE lot of planning, creating, and now teaching :)
The bounty of summer...

Proof that I'm still smiling after my first day back 
and after my husband's and my
5th day of C25K. Remember, it was
upwards of 99 degrees here today
and BALMY!!!

  1. I interviewed at school yesterday that also has no a/c. It's 100* with the heat index in Chicago this week, and even at 9:00 AM, it was H-O-T in that building. Yuck!
