Spring is Almost Here

Spring is almost here. We have been getting hit with snow that melts the next day. I have also seen some robins and flowers starting to sprout. This is great. I am so sick of winter. A few more weeks until spring break. I am counting the days.

This time of the school year is always tough bc it is right before the big state exam. It is also budget time. Everyone is stressed out. There is a new test and a new teacher evaluation system this year so that makes it worse. I had one observation this year. Now I have to wait for my unannounced observation. Hopefully it will not happen until after the test.

Everyone has been getting upper respiratory infections. I finally got hit with it. My sinuses are killing me along with my throat and my voice. I have never blown my nose so much. I debated about whether or not to stay home. It is hard especially on a Monday. I feel the worst at night and when I wake up. I am manageable during the day. Thankfully I have some mucinex laying around. This is the worst time of year to be out too. I will most likely go in bc it takes too much effort to plan and then the aftermath is too annoying. (The kids not behaving for the sub. Nothing gets done. The kids complain about the sub etc)

I have had a good amount of sign ups for the gift swap. There is still time to sign up. I am excited. I have to pick out the gift that I am going to send. It is nice to have something to look forward to.  You may use this link to sign up during March.     

My TPT store is still going strong. It looks like I  might make another grand this quarter. I am up to 45 likes on FB. I am grateful to have this distraction and opportunity to make some extra cash. I am starting to do some spring cleaning in my store. Update some products, delete others, etc.

I'm really looking forward to the warmer weather. I love to garden and take walks. 


  1. I hope you get better soon! DH and I were taking turns being sick the last 2 weeks. Looking forward to the gift swap!

    1. Thanks, I feel fine except my voice is gone. It is really hard, almost impossible to teach middle schoolers without a voice. I'm glad you are excited for the gift swap.

  2. As a fellow teacher I'm always up for new ideas! I follow TPT. How do I get to you there? I'd love to check out some of your resources!

    1. Hello,
      Here is a link to my store. I have a variety of items ranging from simple worksheets to games like bingo.

  3. I feel you on being sick. I got the nasty bug & have blown my nose hundreds of times a day - it is literally raw & hurts. I can't wait to get over this!
    SO glad your TPT is doing so well! Hooray!!!

  4. I finally got over it after 3 weeks. My nose was so raw and I had even used the tissues with lotion. My TPT is doing really well. It keeps me sane! Thanks!


Thank you for stopping by. I love getting comments. You may also send me a private message if needed. I had to turn the word verification back on due to way too much spam.
