Yes, I'm still here!

First of all, my most sincere apologies for not posting anything in a very long time (bad blogger!).  To sum it all up, last year was EXTREMELY rough.  31 kids, 2 building moves, fighting to get an aide and upteen million curriculum changes kicked my behiney.  You know that back to school, first few weeks exhaustion you have?  I had it all year.  :(  I was treading water and barely making it.  I basically quit doing things for me and it made me very unhappy.  My new plan is this:  MAKE time for what I love, even if that means all the laundry doesn't get done and the house is a little messy.


I'm sure you all in gearing up mode, just as I am.  I've decided to take the plunge and change my color scheme that I've had for 15 years--going from primary colors to a more "adult" look-turquoise and purple with lime green accents.  I'd never been to a Back to School sale at Mardel and let's just say, 90% of my shopping was done while I was waiting in line.  I was inspired by this:

The color scheme perfectly fits my new retro-antique-repurposed decorating I've been doing at home.  It just seems so calming to me.  I'm an all or nothing kinda girl so I've got stuff everywhere in my house.  My hands are still stained from all the spray painting I've done!

I get into my classroom Monday, so I will be posting a definite before and after glimpse of my room.  Until then, I'm headed back to my spray painting, laminating, and creating.  Thanks for sticking with me and just remember this...
