School Visit Fail....

Well, it's that time of year!  You all know what I am talking about.....you go to any given store, and BAM! You get hit with the school supply display.  There is no wake up call to remind you of the ending of summer quite like this.  If you are like me, at first you think..."Oooo, new crayons!!"  which is almost immediately followed by "OMG I only have a few weeks left of my vacation!"

That being said, upon seeing the crayons and other goodies, I went home and started preparing my materials that I had already purchased for next year.  One project I have decided to do this year is create table skirts for all of my large tables in my room (pictures to come soon!)  Well, the table skirts turned out so cute that I could NOT WAIT to put them on the tables, like, not even a day.  Sooooo, off I go to school the next morning to put my cute creation into it's new home.

Maybe Next Time.

Wouldn't you know they are waxing the floors in the hallway. 

That being said, I guess my cutesy makeover pictures will have to wait a little while.  **Sigh**

On a happier note, Antoinette and Emily over at  4321...Teach have been so sweet to give me the Versatile Blogger Award!  Really, this happened like a month ago, but summer can cause me to really slack!!  Thanks so much Antoinette and Emily!!

  1. You're welcome! :)

    I feel the same way about school supplies coming out; almost. People keep talking about the wonderful feeling of new crayons. I don't get that feeling; I just get the OMG my summer break is coming to an end. lol

    I am heading up to one of my new schools today (I will be working between two). I'm nervous to see my office and the state it might be in. I might have to blog about it. :)

    1. Good Luck!! I hope that BOTH of your schools end up being great places to work!! And please blog about it either way:) Sometimes it can be helpful to see the good AND the bad!

  2. Congrats on you award and THANK YOU for passing it along to me :) How exciting! I love these awards because you get to learn so much about bloggers through their random facts :)
