Currently and I'm Back!

I'm linking up with Farley over on Oh' Boy 4th Grade.
I don't know about you but I'm loving the Olympics. I just sit and cut out ALL my lamination and cheer for the USA!.

I went back to my classroom yesterday for the first time. Oh brother! I spent the whole day, about 7 hours. I was pooped when I got home and I hadn't even tied a shoe, wiped a nose, zipped a zip or hugged a kid. I've got to get myself in shape for those little darlings AND my room. I'm doing some house cleaning so it's going to take me a little longer this year to get ready. I'm purging files, books, and cupboards. Do any of you have a hard time throwing books away? Some of mine are VERY, VERY old, falling apart, with pages missing and I still have a hard time putting them in the recycling bin. What can I say, I'm just a book lover.
Well, I'm off to watch more of the Olympics.
Have a great weekend everyone!

Like you, I'm loving my laminator and the Olympics! Good thing they're just a short time, because I am totally unproductive right now!

I cannot imagine 31 kids! I was pulling my hair out with 27...
Best of luck to you this school year!

I am not a sports fan at all but I am loving the Olympics too!!

And I also have way too many books and I seriously need to purge. I got rid of 6 whole boxes earlier this summer and I still have too many. Ay yi yi!

I am loving the Olympics too! I am so jealous that you have been working in your room. I am spending all next week in mine. I just can't wait to get started. I hope you have a great school year.

I am loving the Olympics too! I am doing the same thing. It seems all us laminating and cutting crazy teachers should get together and watch the Olympics. :) I also agree that summer went way too fast.

I love the Olympics. We recorded all of it! I don't know when we will ever find time to watch them. I spent about a week purging right after school was out. Looking at my class now, I think I probably still need to purge. I hate getting rid of books that I paid $$$ for, even though I NEVER use them. Yep, I need to do a bit more purging. lol

Oh yeah ... I'm always trying to purge files and books. It's so hard. I brought a lot of books home from school this year and added another bookcase to my office. Not exactly purging ... but it looks good :)
