Change of Plans

I came home tonight with every intention to go back to my classroom tonight. Tomorrow about thirty second grade teachers (every single one from our school corp!) will be watching a model lesson in my classroom given by a corp trainer. My classroom is in a crazy state of affairs. Twenty three kids and three projects in my room means that you cannot even see the counter top or tabletops at all. Oh, then there is my desk. It looks like the absent minded professor took over my room. A messy classroom is a learning, creative environment....right? Yes, absolutely! However, there are some neat freak teachers out there that would have an absolute cardiac if they saw my room!

The problem with going in tonight is that I have a backache. My lower back is really hurting tonight. I have been chilling out in the recliner with my laptop while my girls played happily together. Hubby worked late....the dreaded tax season has begun. When he finally got home, he asked me if I wanted some ice cream before I left for work. Hmmmmm.....let me think. I never turn down ice cream! He brought me some of my favorite Blue Bunny ice cream called "Red Velvet Cake." It is to.die.for.

Okay, so sitting in the recliner and eating ice cream.....
You can see why my plans of organizing my classroom have gotten sidetracked. So I made a change of plans (thanks to my friend, Elizabeth's, suggestion). She suggested I just go in early tomorrow, so I will! My change of plans consists of red velvet ice cream, my warm slippers, a blanket, the recliner, and lots of Pinterest inspiration.

Don't judge.....

As a neat freak, I'd still say, it's your room. Whatev.
