Weather totally not being cooperative, I still haven't done my yard chores except for caring for the birds. Otherwise I have decluttered, caught up on reading, etc. and am starting to get that feeling of dread that comes with thinking of going back to work. I hope to manage the mind-draining lesson plan process better though as I finally took the time to break what I have to teach into a 10-week lesson cycle that I can use again and again. Looking back at my test scores, I determined that is the average length of time an offender stays in my class and while I never expected to feel this way, there isn't much point in beating my brains out to teach higher when they are not going to be there long enough for those weekends I spend building lessons to pay off anyway. I need to manage my life and my friendships better than I have the last two years, and take care of taking care of myself a whole lot better.
