We've just had our first week of school and I'm either working on school stuff at school or working on school stuff at home. I've been working from 6 am - 6 pm pretty much since preplanning. And the thing is, I don't have to be working this much. I keep making little projects for myself that I don't have to do but rather want to do. I keep telling myself that all the hard work that I put in now will pay off later. But after one project ends, there's another one right around the corner. And for the past few years, things didn't slow down until December. I don't want that for myself this year. I've taught for 8 years now and I'm working a lot harder now than when I first started! When will I ever find my groove? For those of you who can manage to leave on time on a regular basis, how do you do it?
