My To-Do List

18 June 2013

 

I’m a teacher.  People think I have “summer’s off.”  I am contracted to work 185 days.  My salary, however, is divided over 12 months.  Essentially, I’ve earned the eight weeks.

 

But, here’s where I get a little crazy. 

 

During the school year, my alarm goes off at 5:00 am (but, I’m usually already awake thinking about my first period class).  I drink coffee, return emails, walk the dogs and arrive at school at 7:00 am.  From the moment my students walk in the door, I’m on.  Sometimes I joke that I don’t teach.  Instead, I do three stand-up shows each day for three very different audiences.

 

After school, I come home.  I feed the dogs.  I walk the dogs.  Between reading essays or stories and planning community service activities, I reply to emails from parents and students.  Somehow, I squeeze in laundry, snow shoveling or gardening, and housework.

 

With summer, I am without a schedule. 

 

Here’s today’s “to-do” list:

 

Drink coffee

Peruse Facebook

Walk the dogs

Clean garage

Drink a beer

 

 

Tomorrow’s “to’do” list:

Drink coffee

Peruse Facebook

Walk dogs

Read The Fault in Our Stars

Do not get in car

Drink champagne

 

Or, none of the above.
