We are down to the last two and a half weeks of school. I am chasing my tail, living from one cup of coffee to the next…and I do not like coffee. Ha! Not only do I have to pack up my classroom and lug it home (it feels like I'm moving my HOUSE) but my girl is graduating from High School my last day of school. I. Can't. Even. So much so that I made this shirt for me to wear that Friday. It will be my last day at the school I have worked at and loved for the for the last six years AND my baby girl's graduation. Who's sending me a box of tissues? The ones with lotion so my teeny tiny nose doesn't peel. Ha!
I can't believe the mermaid is graduating. Luckily, she is staying home for college, at least the first year. I don't know if I could make it. I know, they leave the nest..blah, blah, blah. But, I have only had her in my life for nine years and y'all, that just isn't enough time. Not to mention I would live in a house of boys! A husband (who is just a big boy), two teenage boys (let's be honest, they are gross) and my sweet puppy, also a BOY. Sigh.
Here is my sweet graduate.
I'm sure it is totally SHOCKING that we went with the mermaid theme. I love how everyone in the history of ever tags me in every single mermaid themed anything on Facebook because they know Grace loves the #mermaidlife. And, yes..that is a dinglehopper in her pictures. Ha! She is the poster girl for Disney. I need them to sponsor some of this mermaid crap (said with love). 🙂
Today I updated my End of Year Memory book. If you have purchased it in the past, go back and re-download it with the current dates. If you don't have it, it is on sale this weekend for $2.
I have tackled a tons of things on my To Do List today all from the comfort of my pajamas. Seriously, I was exhausted. You understand. My sweet #RudyRadke understood. He guarded my door and was ready to “off with your head” if you even dared to wake me up early this morning. Ha!
I finally got the mermaid's graduation invitations out earlier this week. I forgot how much stamps cost. Seriously, I'm so spoiled to paying everything online and mailing stuff through Amazon Prime! I spent a ton on stamps and need to go to the post office to buy more because my brochures and new business cards came in this week. I am SO EXCITED and can't wait to visit schools this next school year. If you are interested in hiring me for your school's PD, email me and I will mail you a brochure. The future is looking bright!!
My last effort for today was finishing this teacher planner. I like it because it's simple and you can print the pages you need and ignore the rest. There are several formats to choose from and you can print in color or just black and white. I will post it to TPT for purchase tomorrow but guess what? If you are a newsletter subscriber, you get it FREE! Yep, you read that right. Monthly I will send subscribers something special and this month, you will get this little ditty in your inbox. Make sure you are following so you don't miss out on a freebie, discount code for apparel or a insider's only giveaway!
Now I am exhausted again. Ha. It's a never ending cycle. The good thing is that I am STILL in my pajamas so I can just climb back into bed whenever I have the energy to leave this seat. Don't worry, I will shower in the morning before church. For now, I am embracing the hot mess look. My poor husband knows that he cannot expect anything from me (including a shower or food) during the last few weeks of school. I'm really just lucky to be alive. The struggle is real friends. If you aren't a teacher, you should hug one. Tomorrow. Better yet, buy them something with caffeine because they haven't slept in forever.
Thanks for reading this babbling. I'm bouncing from one squirrel to the next.
Love and virtual hugs!
