Day 12 of winter break. Believed to be the only teacher in the county who is looking forward to going back to school. Have exhausted all channels of recreation: two oil changes, a car inspection, a dog bath, trip with said dog to Petsmart, 6 books, one blanket, several instances of retail therapy, three holiday get togethers, one Rock of Love season 2 marathon, approximately forty-eight pinterest pins, ninety-seven games of solitaire, several loads of laundry, and one large batch of coconut-chocolate-krispie treats later… Must get back to work soon, or else monetary resources will be depleted in massive online shopping sprees.
Cruel weather forecasters are calling for snow on Friday with “significant accumulation.” Possible snow day on the second day back at school after break. Note: school has already used only snow day built into the calendar for the year.
Outlook: unfavorable. Mood: restless. Craving: ice cream.
