Back to Middle School...

My summer is over and I must get back to work. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with my family this past hot season. I always do. I found myself reminiscing about summers past when I was a kid and I don't know why this year especially. I saw old friends on many occasions during good times and very sad times. I made a new friend and she lives 2 blocks away...who knew? I've come across an ex boyfriend unexpectedly and boy was that a surprise...thanks Facebook, I think. I took my plunge into the world of permenopause...turns out, I don't like it! I will miss the beach even though I only went twice and I will definitely miss the sleeping in...definitely!

But I must look forward to the next 10 months of learning the new jargon, inappropriate clothing trends, unimaginable amounts of axe cologne, fowl language, out of control hormones (not mine) girl drama, teacher drama, staff drama and the impromptu food flinging. Yes, middle school is one big par-tay and I will be smack dab in the middle of it. Seriously, I enjoy most of it and for some inhumane reason, I actually like this age group. So, wish me luck this year, NO, scratch that, wish my students luck because hormone for hormone, they're not gonna see it coming....I'm just say'n


  1. I too will miss Summer and I never thought I'd say it. I just can't seem to handle the heat anymore....that too is an age thing.

    Enjoy the job and hey, if anyone should happen to fling food your way, save it for later, there seriously are kids without even in this country. ;-)

  2. A darn good family too!

  3. Your students don't have a chance, you are way to smart! I was a school principal for 25 years. I know just what you are feeling. You can do it! Martha

  4. Ha! Love what you're saying! I have a son in 6th grade and one in 9th. Last year, the 8th grade hormonal thing must have been going on with my oldest. I am hoping this year he will get it together before January. :) I work in Administration at the kids school so at least I am close at hand. Have a great school year!

  5. Oh lordy! Good luck! I don't see how you handle must be a saint.
    Have a fun year and I guess you will continue to blog, so we can keep up.


Go 'head...say it already!
