I feel the same way. It's the other "stuff" that makes you want to retire.

Teachers go back tomorrow, Aug 10. First day for kids Aug 24. I went in last Monday to set up the furniture. This is the last year I HAVE to work before I'm eligible to retire. We'll see how it goes. I'm hoping knowing I CAN retire will make it easier to get a few more years in. If it were just the kids I wouldn't even be thinking about it. It's the other "stuff" that gets in the way of me teaching the kids. Plus, we have had classes of 30 or so for the past few years, in 2nd grade, which is exhausting. Right now I'm excited. We'll see how the year goes!

I have a few trainings on the 26th and 28th. There is a in service for staff on the 31st and then students will begin on the first. Getting a bit panicky what with starting in a new district and in a new job! Going to try to relieve the stress by eating right and exercising! I will be going in to set things up. Finally got to see my classroom yesterday and I am quite please!

I go this Monday, August 3. The kids are back on Wednesday. I worked this week to get my room all set up, so I'm feeling pretty good about it.

I can't wait for retirement! There is no balance in life once school starts. Every year I promise myself to leave earlier so I can workout.

August 24th for teachers; August 31st for students. Summer started on June 18th; summer is always too short. Looking forward to retirement, but that is at least 6 years away! I am getting very tired. It is hard to find a reasonable work/life balance as I require more and more sleep due to health issues.

What is your first official back to school day? (yes I know many of you are there early!)

What is the students' first day back?
