Slice of Life #12

Three days of conferences.  Printing progress reports.  Three hectic days of half-days, full of assemblies and student activity fairs.

In other words, pure chaos.

Is it any wonder that I came home tonight and felt like I had been run over by a truck?  Since walking in my front door, I’ve only done the following:

1. Vacuumed

2. Cleaned the counters and dusted the mantel

3. Walked the dog

4. Ordered pizza

5. Picked up said pizza

6. Sat on my couch and watched tv.

7. Almost fell asleep on the couch.  Ten times.

Conferences are absolutely exhausting.  While I love seeing my students’ parents, I hate the feeling of complete and utter exhaustion that overcomes me over the course of the week.  Maybe we need to do one day of conferences in a week, and spread out the days over a few weeks.  I think I could handle that a little bit better.  But in the meantime, I am off to catch some zzzz’s!

  1. I’m impressed you did cleaning and walked the dog! It sounds like you were productive despite your exhaustion! Enjoy your weekend.

  2. Wow you did way more than I would have after a day like you had. I would have ordered pizza, had it delivered and sat on couch. That’s it.
