Wanted: floating device

Posting may be light for a while. I'm drowning in a sea of paperwork and IEPs while simultaneously navigating the shark-infested waters that are Office Politics. I'm doing my best, but at the end of the day, whatever work isn't finished I just pretend doesn't exist. I close my eyes, plug my ears and sing LA LA LA LA THE STRESS ISN'T REAL IF I DON'T THINK ABOUT IT!!
 
Thankfully, in a little less than two weeks, I'll be able to come up out of the water and gasp for air. Spring Break will give me a while to catch my breath before going back under for the final push until June.
 
In the meantime, I'm trying to do things that make me happy... like giving Barney a new toy and watching him leap gleefully around the house with it. Or watching TV with Max. Or trying new recipes.
 
What do you do to stay happy?

reading, exercising, talking with friends and fellow teachers, baking and sleeping in on Saturdays!

Hang in there. I am swamped with IEPs too, so I can completely sympathize. I try to make a daily to- do list with just one or two items on it, prioritized by due date.

I go out in the woods and cut down trees with a chain saw...

Retail therapy works for me, but I don't recommend it! Thank goodness for spring break :) Brenda
