Usually, we never get Columbus day off at school, but for some reason we did this year. I think it was simply to give all of us teachers one more day of fall break. I have been on fall break all week, and I finally have to go back tomorrow. Am I ready? No. I haven’t done a bit of schoolwork since we got out of school. That is why it is so fortunate that I get this day to do all the work I should have done over the break. On Friday before I left, I put up a new bulletin board for fall. I told someone that I knew once I got a taste of lazy, I wouldn’t want to do it anymore. It’s true. And here I am writing a post instead of doing what I should. So, I must go to school now and put in grades, make new seating charts, and prepare lessons. Happy Columbus day!
