An apology for my absence and an update of my existance

My life, for the last two weeks, has consisted of nothing but school.  I am currently teaching Grade 7, 8 and 9 Science and Grade 7, 8 and 9 English as well as 8 PDR (like health class).  The only one I have taught before is 7 Science so I am writing new programs for 6 courses and working like a madwoman to try and learn all the procedures of the new school and the names of the students from 6 classes. 

The kids are tough, but I am determined to not let them break me down.  I am approaching each day with a smile and a positive thought (for example: I only have those monsters in 8 English for an hour today HOORAY!). 

The first month of school is incredibly tiring and I am in need of some serious R&R this weekend.  Plans: read Dan Brown's new book, watch hours of brain numbing television and drink at least a bottle (maybe two) of wine.

Hope you all have similarly gloriously relaxing plans,
