A Peek at my Week 8*25*14.. EEK I'm Scared!

It's that time again... and I don't know exactly how I feel about it. Mostly because I'm feeling anxious about leaving Hudson, but I know I'm not the first to do it. I'm just sad that I feel like I'm going to miss so much when I'm gone without him. My goals this year include being more organized with home and school especially with planning.  I want to plan more meals ahead of time, make sure we have groceries for lunches and snacks, and not make little piles around the house or the classroom to have to clean up later. I want to plan my blog posts ahead of time as much as I can so I can still keep up on that as well. I really want to be 100% at school when I'm there, but then equally 100% at home when I'm home. So if I'm absent for a little while, you know that I'm adjusting and balancing.   With that being said... 

I'm linking up with Mrs. Laffin's Laughings for her weekly linky 'A Peek at my Week' where everyone shares their plans for the week ahead.  

As you can see I've started filling in my planner....
I'm sure it will be much more full as the week goes on- but here's the plan. 

Monday: I don't have to go to school but my husband does. The plan is to get organized for the week ahead. Pick out clothes for the week, clean the house, go grocery shopping, prep some meals and lunches and play with Hudson of course!

As I prepare to leave my little monkey... I am thinking of the above quote. I will be the teacher each day that I wish for him to have when he gets old enough for school. Continue doing what I have been doing, and take each day for what it is.  And BE HAPPY!

Tuesday: My first day back for meetings at school. I'm excited but also super anxious about getting out of the house. Luckily for us, my mom will be watching Hudson on Tuesday at our house. So it really won't be a time issue or anything. I just need to get my butt out the door. We don't have to worry about taking him to daycare until the following week. Even then my mom will be watching him 2 days at the house (until their new house is finished being built...) Then he will have to travel all 5 days.  

Wednesday: Big district welcome back. It's always nice to get together as a district. We always have some sort of speaker or presentation that kicks the year off. There have been some really great ones in the past, so I'm excited for what is to come this year. My husband is off Wednesday-Friday so he'll be home, and hopefully bring me a sweet little lunch date one day!

Thursday: Teacher Work Day and Open House/ Meet the Teacher Night. My main goal, is to just get my room ready. Oh ya, and get the paperwork for families ready. I'm already nervous and super excite to meet everyone. I know the kids are too....but meeting parents always make me nervous at first! First impressions are so important. 


Friday: Flex Day that I will be working to prepare and then leave it all there for the long weekend before the big day. My goal is to be all set and ready to go by when I leave on Friday so I can just enjoy!!!

Here's the plan...


Although I am nervous I am also very excited to meet my new group of kids and start 'real life' as my maternity leave ends. Here goes nothing!!!  

Hope everyone who is back at school already has a great week. 


  1. It is hard leaving your little one but it does get easier. Hope your week goes well and stays organized : )

  2. I love this post, Ana! I think one of the things that makes the beginning of the year so exciting is all the possibility it holds. I want to hold on to that possibility for as long as I can. We will have an AMAZING year!! See you tomorrow...
