I deplore working past Memorial Day

But I did anyway. All week. Ugh.

Kids are crazy, teachers are grumpy, even the normally pleasant front office staff are terse.

Ick, I’m so sorry. Thankfully, my district closed out the spring semester at noon on the Friday before Memorial Day. My last day was Wednesday—-close enough.

What’s the point in continuing school after Memorial Day, unless you’re making up snow days? Of course, those districts can gloat when we start back on August 12th, in Texas. It will be surface-of-the-sun-hot, so there’s that.

We end on the 5th, last Friday was my last day. Enough. Seriously considering looking for something else.

Tomorrow I have a hair appointment. I could only get a morning appt., so unless an afternoon job opens up..... Thursday is a half day, then I pick up the grandgirls at 11:30 from their last day of school in another district. The prince said that since the teacher is doing lunch duty, he will take over for a few minutes so I can leave ten minutes early to go get them. Then I get to watch them on Friday, since their school-based summer program doesn't start until the following Monday. I can only work 120 days a year as a retired teacher, and I almost got that many days in.

We are a little over two weeks past the scheduled end date, and we didn’t get spring break. We are all tired of each other.

This year two districts I’m in go until the 18th and it’s mostly just middle school jobs now. Prolly will try to avoid it.
