Some highlights so far:
* I officially reported back on Monday (the kids start next week, although I'll meet many of them tomorrow at Open House). I've put countless hours into my classroom this week (and even some last week) and just TODAY it started to actually LOOK like a classroom (as opposed to a "storage shed," as Rich put it, before I gave him the snake eye and he backed out the room in fear). Tomorrow morning, I write my lesson plans for next week. This week is, as you can imagine, flying by for me. I'm incredibly sore tonight from moving my furniture, then moving it again, the moving it back to the first place, then deciding that both places sucked and moving it to a third. But today was my most productive day yet. Am I completely finished? No. Is it perfect? No. Is it good enough for OH (Open House, not Ohio)? Yes. And sometimes, my friends, you have to settle for "good enough".
*I switched meds again this week and so far, so good. In fact, knock on wood, I think this one is going to work for me. That HORRIBLE feeling that I've posted about is gone and I'm relaxed and can concentrate again. Sleeping like shit this week but that's from being stressed/nervous/excited about work and not due to nuttiness.
*I finished 2 of my 3 major assignments for one of my Masters classes and will finish the 3rd this weekend (come hell or high water), thereby fulfilling my goal of completing at least one class this summer (by the skin of my teeth, of course).
All in all, it's been a good week so far. And I'm only halfway through!
