My Nice Clean Closet

I could have stayed a little bit late on Friday and not have had to go in to school today, but my friend, Mrs. L is 35 weeks pregnant and is starting to "nest" and she wanted to go in today.  I didn't think she should be there alone (especially being 35 weeks) so I went in too.

I got my station tubs set up for next week and then tackled my closet.

Notebooks with resources and my "teacher" books

HM/EDM materials and my "bubble water" as my Special Friend calls it

Not the closet, but right next to it - our class Post Office
It feels so nice to have that closet organized.  I get to stay in the same room next year (this is my fourth year teaching and my fourth classroom) so I'm starting to really get things organized.

I'm looking forward to tomorrow, I get to sleep in, have a leisurely breakfast and read my Bible, get mani/pedis with my friend and her daughter, then catch up on all the DVR'd shows at my friends house while I work on my lesson plans (my goal is to get planned till Spring Break (3 weeks away!)


  1. It looks great. Good job. It sounds like a fun day off.

  2. Hi there,
    How cool that you are in Alaska. My hubby and I went on a cruise there for our 10th anniv. It was sooo beautiful! I'm glad I found you. I'm a new blogger and your newest follower. I bet it feels good to clean out the cabinets! Come on over and check me out sometime.

    I'm going to have a similar day but I'm going to give myself a mani/pedi so that I can stay home ALL DAY. :)
