Well, I must apologize--I have severely neglected my blog. I had great intentions, but once school began I realized that I might have I have been so exhausted by the end of each day, that I don't even want to stalk my favorite blogs.
I was diagnosed at the end of the school year last year with fibromyalgia, and I am still learning how to manage life with it. In a nutshell, I have to do a lot less than I am used to doing, and it is very frustrating. I've always been the teacher who stays late, working on the next project. Now I try to hold out thirty or forty minutes after the kids go home before crying 'uncle'. I have a longer ride to and from school this year, so by the time I get home, I usually head straight to bed.
Needless to say, the blog has not been tended to very well. Since this is my spring break week, I want to try to get two or three more entries added. Maybe then I'll be able to add a short note or two through the rest of the year---we have 44 more school days, and plenty left to do.
I never posted the completed version of my room, so I will begin with that. Keep in mind that these were all taken at the beginning of the year---if you walked into my classroom today, you would find much more has taken up residency---and I'm feeling the need for a severe spring cleaning.
That's it...nothing exciting, but now at least I don't feel as if I just left things hanging as far as my room. The next post will be more interesting. :)
