Slice of Life Tuesday: Running Out of Time

6 Comments

Running, running, running…

To the school supply stores, to the doctor, to the dentist, to the SCUBA shop, to Ohio for SCUBA day…wait! Today is National Book Lovers Day! I have to read! I cannot believe these are the last days of summer. I agree with a fellow Slicer; I’m not ready!

Running, running, running...

I have draft-planned my first few weeks of school. There are so many great ideas, stories, and lessons. Mostly, I want my students to read and write well, and have fun doing it! Yet, I feel a sense of urgency, and the meetings for staff development start next week — wait! Oh, no, it’s THIS week!

Running, running, running…

With all of this running around, I should be in great shape to start the school year. We shall see!

  1. Starting school is like running a marathon. There is so much to do so it looks effortless when the kids arrive. Have a great start!

  2. Slow down and make some time to breathe.
    I read this article in the Sunday NYT. I cut it out so my husband and I can keep rereading it.http://www.nytimes.com/2011/11/20/jobs/to-avoid-distractions-at-work-hit-the-reset-button.html?module=Search&mabReward=relbias%3Ar%2C%7B%221%22%3A%22RI%3A9%22%7D.
    Here’s to a great start and a great school year!

  3. Ah yes, running to and from the first day of school. I remember wanting every day of August to last as long I as could. So enjoy, breathe and remember the second day will be even better. 🙂
