Tonight was our school open house, held at the beginning of each semester, when the parents can come down to the school and meet their childrens’ teachers. It’s a good program, it’s definitely worthwhile, and it’s good to get it done at the beginning of the semester.
But it CAN be exhausting. Especially if, like me, you life far enough away from the school to make it rather impractical to come home in-between the end of the school day and the beginning of the open house. So except for a quick journey to the Wal-Mart next door (I needed a few things for my class) I was at school from 7 a.m. until nearly 8 p.m. You get home and you’ve got an hour, maybe two until it’s time to go to bed. It’s a tiring day. Especially since we always do it on a Monday, which means we’ve gotta get up early and do it all over again tomorrow.
