So that big "To Do" list that I had yesterday?
It still exists.
Like 95% of it. Oops.
But I got through today without feeling the pain of it all not being done. And I left at 4:30 (an hour and 20 minutes after dismissal) with none of it done but also nothing in my hands. I was working in that time but on copying and other crap that can't wait. [I swear I need a full-time secretary of my own!]
My truck was being fixed today so I had to pick up both The Husband and The Littles which put a serious crimp in getting some things done. But tonight I plan to turn in early so I can get up early, get to school early and hopefully put a big dent into the rest of my To Do list. Tomorrow afternoon I also have a prep in the afternoon, right up to dismissal, so I will be able to get a lot done in that time as well.
I swear it is the copying and other stuff that just bogs me down so much. I feel like the second I get ahead something happens to put me 8 steps behind!!
But that's okay. If all goes according to plan tomorrow, I can be at work from 6:45 (ewww!) to about 4:30 and I should have (note how I said should have) about 3 and a half hours spread throughout the day to get caught up on things and hopefully a bit ahead for next week. That of course assumes that I get to work that early, get to utilize my full recess break and have my full prep plus after school time without interruptions. Probably not likely but even if I only have 2 1/2 hours, it should help me get caught up a lot. That morning time will be really important because I get SO MUCH DONE in the mornings if I can get there early since people tend to leave each other alone in the morning.
So it'll be on with the Never-Ending To Do List...because even when I cross all this stuff off, I'll have to add something else to it!
