I did it. I broke my own cardinal day-before-the-first-day-of-school rule.
I had this all planned. I stayed up late last night, hoping to get up early this morning. That would mean I’d be tired all day today, and would be able to go to bed early and fall fast asleep, all so that I’d be a squirrel (you know, all bright and bushy tailed) for tomorrow’s first day.
I’ve done it before. And luckily, that teacher adrenaline will kick in right after my morning sip of Diet Coke (aka cold caffeine), and the day will proceed flawlessly. And no one will be the wiser. Unless, of course, you’ve read this blog. And in that case, you’ll simply marvel at how much energy I have, given the fact that I slept so little.
And I’ll fall fast asleep. Like I wish I would tonight.
But I won’t.
‘Cause I slept in.
