on returning to work

So the countdown begins.  I have three weeks today before I have to go back to work.  I am feeling anxious and unsure about the whole thing.  I really LOVE my job.  I teach 2nd grade.  BUT I REALLY LOVE Miss A ( a whole lot more than my job, obviously).  But it has been made clear that I am to go back.  I am not sure what to expect.  I have done a few things over the last couple of days to start to prepare.

  • I have planned every outfit for the 5 weeks that I am back to work before a short Summer Break because I will be getting up super early to get to work by 6am so that I can get home by 3pm.  Sounds a bit silly, I know, but my whole morning can go South if I do not know what I am wearing ahead of time. 
  •  I have also made a menu for those 5 weeks so I do not have to think about what is for dinner.  This also helps me make the grocery list for the week so that I do not put off going on the weekend.
  • I have made the babysitter a list of important phone numbers in case of emergency.
Does anyone have any other suggestions on preparing myself and my home to go back to work?  I would love some advice!
