I. am. so. tired.
Reacclimating to normal life has been hard for some reason, even though we were only gone for a couple of days. It might be premature exhaustion, in anticipation of my intense work week, I guess. It's going to be all middle schoolers, all the time.
I don't think I mentioned it, but my teaching counterpart who teaches Thursdays is not getting along with the current 8th-grade English teacher with whom we're working. So, my supervisor asked me to teach her remaining sessions, in addition to my own. Plus, this week and next include one field trip day.
The positive side to this story is that I'm off after December 16th (my birthday!) for the rest of the month. It will be nice holiday preparation-wise, but also working extra for the next two weeks will help balance the lost hours.
I know I'm a wuss compared to some of y'all, but as I've shared, this teaching (especially this age kids) really takes it out of me. Thus, I'm mentally preparing to be tough and muscle through the next couple of weeks. Wish me luck!
Next weekend will be all about Christmas stuff like buying and decorating a tree, so that will be a reward. . .
