    Oh, the past 11 days have been magnificent. This is the one true break that I get each year, and I love it! I am very sad that it's my last day of break, but, on the upside, I've gotten everything done to get ready to go back, so I have today just to relax around the house.

    MsWK, I feel the exact same. I'm glad that I've gotten everything done (except a little laundry), but I'm not ready yet!

    I need to do a little lesson planning today. Maybe that will get me in the mood.

    I think I want to cry. 11 days just doesn't seem long enough. Maybe I should get married have my triplets and be a stay at home mom. :lol:

    I agree. MOst of my break was wonderful - and it was all recreational, not a bit of schoolwork at all. But now that I got sick this past weekend, I still have so much to do around the house before I go back!

    At least it's only a 3-day week for me. And Friday is a 1/2 day. I guess I can handle it... it's the thought of going to my classes on Friday and Saturday that is adding to my pain.

    Back to the grind.

    I have enjoyed my time off too....haven't even taken the "teacher bag" out of my car since my break started. I need to finish packing away the Christmas decorations today. I also will go through my closet and get rid of at least 7 shirts since I have 7 new ones. (There are tons I don't wear, I just hang onto them). But, I don't go back to work until Monday, so I have a few more days. Lesson plans are ready for the first week back, and I plan to get at least the next week's plans done before I go back.

    We were supposed to go back next Monday but we are not going back until Tuesday since LSU is in the National Championship. Most of our students have season tickets and no one planned on coming to school that day so they decided to give us an extra day on our holiday. GO TIGERS!!!!

    We have to go back on Friday, Sigh :( I can't wish for snow. Maybe I'll wish for several days worth of rain. :p With the lack of rain, it'll flood. :p Nah, I do need to start working on some lesson plans tomorrow. Sigh.

    I cried this AM about returning! :( After our Miami trip didn't happen over break, I switched gears and hooped up the traditional chaotic X-mas. Then Dec 26 until now, we have done nothing but play, sled, read, sleep, watch movies, eat out, etc. It has been mindless and welcoming.

    I'm having a fabulous school year yet enjoying this life much more.

    Our next break is summer. Done Friday before Memorial Day...bring it on I guess!

    Go back tomorrow :( DON'T want to even though we have been out since the 15th (had to do a 1/2 day planning that day since they took our workday that we normally have after Christmas). I agree with the post above. I haven't taken the "teacher bag" out of the car the entire 17 1/2 days that I have been home. I got a few things taken care of during the break however I still have TONS that I need to get finished (finish painting a bathroom and bedroom, finish cleaning out some closets and boxes from when I first moved in last year). We get out again the 3rd week of February and the 1st week of April. Hopefully I can get all of this done so that when we finish up the end of May I won't have any "chores" left so that I can have the new tile put down in my kitchen and bath and hardwood floors in the rest of the downstairs (really dislike the carpet the builder picked out). I have come to the conclusion that breaks are never long enough. I can imagine next year when our break @ Christmas is cut by a week.

    I'm not ready either! I'm very proud to say I haven't done anything school related during the break. Usually I start in with school work right after Christmas, but not this year. I can't even seem to drag myself out of bed before 8:00! Getting up at 5:30 is going to be soooo difficult on Thursday morning!

    No snow, no rain, just wind. That's what I get for being in California :cool:...no excuses valid enough for canceling school. I am happy I have until Monday, but like a lot of you I have not given even a first glace at the TE's, let alone my planner. I have 5 days left until we start up again, but my school is an hour away so when I go to set up again it is going to be ALL DAY. When is the next break again? ;)
