|These little cheeks are just begging for some kisses|
This poor little blog of mine has been rather neglected lately. Life has been in full swing around here. This past week was the first week of school and it was just as hectic and crazy as I had imagined it to be. And then some.
You may have heard in the news that Texas has had major budget cuts that really hit our schools hard. A lot of teachers were let go. Luckily, my school kept most of its employees because of normal turnaround. But we had to make up for it by cutting back in other ways. So this year we are all teaching six classes a day instead of five. And since we have more teachers than classrooms, most of us are sharing our rooms during our planning periods. This means that we get one 50 minutes block to prep and plan with, and we can't even use our classrooms to do so.
To make a long story short, I am busy. In ways that I've never been busy before. I made it a priority last year to not bring my work home with me. Once I come home I am Hannah's mom 100% and I simply will not give up that precious time. It's going to be extremely difficult to maintain that goal this year.
Hopefully I will get into a good routine soon and things will be a little smoother. But until then I might not be around here as much. There's just not enough time in a day, and every second I have is going to be spent making up for missed hugs and kisses with my sweet baby girl.
Thanks for understanding, friends!
