    has anyone else gone to sleep as soon as they came home from school? I did that today and was out for like 2.5 hours! My kids at school are sort of wacky lately. Anyone else in the same boat?:rolleyes:

    Oh yes this has happened to me. Sometimes I can barely keep my eyes open driving home. I think the kis are wacky due to the full moon like Grammy stated!

    All through Christmas break I helped my bf's mom and a few other teachers in their classrooms. Then I'd go to the gym, go over to my bf's, and promptly fall asleep. Poor guy, doesn't get to see me for months and then I spend all my time with his mom or asleep, lol.
    But yes, I know exactly how you feel!

    I fell asleep on the couch last night after work and didn't wake up until 8:30!!! It's partly this time of the year when we are all waiting for spring...and of course the full moon. My director at work said she did the same thing yesterday...get home and fall asleep on the couch.

    I know that when I started working as a long term sub I was falling asleep on the couch by 6pm everyday. I was soo tired! I don't think people realize how tiring teaching can be! You're definitely not alone in being exhausted after school.

    I "plan" my naps in my head. They are a treat.

    I get up at 5:00, at school by 6:30. Get home by 5:00. That's a long day.

    I nap all the time. Naps are a gift from God. :)

    I'm a sub & student teacher right now & I've felt sleepy driving home at times, but never in my life have I went straight to sleep when I got home from subbing or student teaching all day, even the times I've been a long term sub.

    Maybe once I'm hired in a permanent teaching job, I'll actually do it sometime!

    I never did it as a student teaching either, but once I was the only teacher in the classroom (long-term sub) I was coming home exhausted everyday.

    I wish that was the case! The tests so far have been negative. Unless I am one of those in which Home pg tests never work. I'm planning to go see my dr. during spring break.....

    I plan to sleep the whole week-end - if only my family would cooperate! My class has also been squirrely this week; I'm hoping it's just the reaction to testing being done, and we get back to normal next week!

    I wish I could sleep after work... I have this irritating 22 year old baby who won't let it happen.

    22 years or 22 months?

    I went to bed at 6pm last night after reading in bed for an hour. I got up at 7:30 this a.m. And plan to nap today.

    Yeah, it's only 1 pm and I've already taken a nap. I am relishing the next 8 days.

    Last week was so busy at school, I've been napping for 2-3 hours every day! One day last week, I got home at 4:00, slept from half past until 8:30, and then went to bed for the night at nine! One of my freinds called me to check if I was sick!
