Wishful Wednesday

Kristen's KIndergarten | Wishful Wednesday

As I just begin my summer vacation…how sad is it that I’m already wishing for more time??  For the last two days, I’ve done nothing but sit on the couch (except when I exercised!!) and watched TV.  I feel great sitting there watching nothing and letting my mind wander, but then around 3:00, I start to feel guilty for just sitting there all day.

I talked with my neighbor about it yesterday.  I told him that I feel like I had wasted my whole day!  I felt guilty about not getting any of my projects done or getting anything around the house done.  My neighbor then asked me how I felt about watching all the shows on TV.  I told him that it was nice to sit and do nothing for a change, just relax! 🙂  He said that it didn’t sound like a wasted day to him–just someone who is always on the go taking a rare day off! 🙂

How many times as a teacher have you felt guilty for doing nothing during the first few days of summer vacation?  For me, its hard to think about sitting and doing nothing because for 181 days, I’m always doing SOMETHING! 🙂  It takes a little while to wind down from that.

So I challenge you teachers out there…what’s one thing (non school related) that you wish you could spend your day doing?

And it is OK to just sit and stare at the TV for a few days!  You’ve worked harder in 9 months than most people do in 12 months! 🙂


P.S. Okay, I’ll admit…there was some Pinterest pinning happening in there too…and some list making for a workshop next week, and I did take some time to rubber stamp! 🙂

  1. Kristen,

    Your entry for today describes me perfectly! Today was the first day I didn’t do much but watch television and take a three hour nap. Don’t feel guilty for taking a few days to veg out. Our school year more than makes up for a few lazy days.
