You just can't leave me home alone.
When I'm at home and I'm healthy, I pack my schoolbag with paperwork. I get some of that done without the pressure of watching the clock for the next bell.
Sometimes I spend money online. This worries Husband a little. Today I registered for a 3-credit graduate class. It's a bargain, and I hope it's not a "cheap" class in its quality. I've talked to other teachers who have taken classes from this source, and they all felt it had been worth their time. I certainly hope mine is.
I have a wishlist of books sitting by me, and an Amazon gift code waiting to be used. Hmmm. It's really easy to overspend on books. That's what's stopping me. Before I buy any more, I'd like to talk to my coworkers about establishing a book exchange. We had one at my previous school, and I contributed and borrowed frequently. In fact, I think I bought more new books than I had in the past (rather than second hand) because I knew I'd be able to borrow several others, therefore saving money in the end. If enough teachers want it and the principal approves, it'll be a great sharing opportunity for our staff.
I also read a lot more blogs than usual. In the evening, my normal "surfing" time, I'm often tired and sometimes moody from the day's struggles. By day, with a little more coffee, er, energy, I can surf the political blogs and make reasonably intelligent comments.
Housework. Yes, I get a little more housework done while I'm caffeinated and have a bit of discretionary time. Bunny cage gets cleaned, wastebaskets emptied, and more.
No, you just can't leave me home alone. I clean, I bake, I read, and if this keeps up, I might spend money -- on books. Stumble It!
