Back to school

Well, as expected, the kids went back to school on Thursday. There was a time when this time of year would thrill me. I'd watch the kids get on the bus, waving goodbye through tears of joy. As soon as the bus was out of sight, I would dance on the kitchen table naked, dousing myself with coffee and chanting ...

Ok, I made that last part up. I did enjoy it much more then than I do now, though. It's strange being on the other side ... a teacher dreading the return of the students.

Hmm ... actually, after the last week, I've realized that is not the return of the students that I dread, it's the massive amount of work that gets piled on me as soon as I walk in the door ... and that gets piled up on my desk every time my back is turned. Once the kids get back, I have a reason to smile again but the week before, it's sheer hell.

I found out that I do have assistants now. One started coming down to the media center on Thursday and the other, well ... I'm hoping she will start helping me soon. I went to her on Friday to ask her to please get me the data file I need on Monday morning and I'm hoping that she will also come down and watch me upload it onto the server and see just what I have to do with it. I don't think she realizes how integrated her job and my job are and it's about time she learned. The old SIMS operator did SO much for the media center, so much I can't do.

I may make it this year. Time will tell.
