Holidays ... at last

I can't even remember what it was like to work a 15 week school term, and yet, at the beginning of my teaching career that is what we did! We have just finished an 11 week term, which is the longest one that we do now, and I am EXHAUSTED!

I now have 2 whole weeks to paint and draw, craft and read, and, more importantly, sleep in! I HATE that 6am alarm. Of course the first most important tasks are to finish 3 essays, write an exam paper for my Year 10 class, get the car serviced, organise a gas plumber to check out the loungeroom heater, get in an electrician to fix the front porch light and a water plumber to fix the upstairs loo and the downstairs shower. That is without even thinking about all of the normal household chores that I have been postponing until the holidays.

If I have ANY time left after all of the chores, I have a queue of books lined up to read. You can check out where my head will be going on the book list in the right-hand column on the main page of this blog. Wish me luck.

Two whole weeks off? That sounds like heaven. I get ONE little week off of paid vacation PER YEAR... that's 51 weeks of straight work (and I work 7 days a week!) with my one week off (plus a handful of holidays like Xmas, New Year's, Thanksgiving, etc.) I hope you get to that list of books - time off has a way of disintingrating around you when there are chores to be done.

Do try to find some time to sleep in. Though they do say we can't catch up on sleep and I believe that. :-)
