So, how do you know when a new school year has begun?
I’m not seen online for a solid three weeks, that’s how.
The school year is now in full swing, and I am completely exhausted!! I’ve been working 12 hour days Monday through Friday, and sometimes on Sundays, too (Oh yes, I’ll be there all afternoon today). I’m going to have to change SOMETHING, because I am already getting burnt out, and that will never do.
SO, due to the fact that I’m barely cognitive at this point, I’ll be keeping this post short. I just wanted to let everyone know that YES, I am still keeping a blog…BUT, my posts might be fewer and far between if my work schedule stays like this all year. I also wanted to post pictures of the new rain gutter bookshelves that my amazing husband installed for me in my classroom just before school started.
He was even kind enough to paint them for me, too. Yep, he’s a keeper.
“Rain gutter bookshelves?! Why, however did you come up with such an amazing idea??” you ask. Well, I’m just that brilliant, folks.
Actually, I can’t take full credit for the idea…in fact, I really can’t take any credit. I discovered the idea through a blog written by a mom who made them for her kids’ bedrooms. She also has several other really creative ideas for around the home, so her blog is definitely worth reading if you are into DIY projects. 🙂 For example, I am super intrigued by her idea for a magnetic wall. How cool would THAT be in my classroom?!…I’m thinking that might be my project for next summer.
IF I’m still sane by then. 😉
On that note, I’ll leave you with a photo of the shelves in my classroom with books and all…
