Teacher whine

All along I've said it doesn't matter if we don't have the summers off at our school. We went to year around classes and this is the first summer we've gone. I've been a big proponent at school, in public and even here on my blog about why this isn't a big deal and teachers should get over it, and just adjust like the rest of the working world who don't get a paid 3 month break.

Okay- I am wrong. I am so wrong. I hate that i have to get up in the mornings and go to work when my teacher friends can stay home and play. I hate it. I want to stay home and play! Oh yeah, I know I always worked in the summers but I knew I had the option to MOT work if I didn't want to. It sucks! I was wrong wrong wrong!
Maybe it's mental for me? My body is programmed to have time off and now that I don't I find it hard to get up in the morning and hard to sleep at night. I dread going to work. I don't necessarily dread my job but I dread the getting up and going through the motions.
I want to stay home and play. I'd craft and quilt and read read read!
Drat, I want my summers off, unlike the rest of the non- teaching world. Blah me!

I'm so sorry you have to get up every morning, except Friday that is. I also know you are sorry that I have to get up every morning at 5:30 mind you and go to work especially on Friday mornings. Just kidding. By the way, did you quilt last summer during your vacation?

I didn't realize y'all were going to year-round school. Man, that stinks. I promise to think about you when I get to "sleep in" until 6:30. Except for the days my body forgets and wakes me up at 5:30.

Congratulations on the continued weight loss, by the way. I'm getting re-motivated myself. Want to have a challenge of some sort?
