Road Trip!

I think I am finally recovered enough from moving halfway across the country to finally post about it! We had major U-Haul truck problems. Like I'm talking multiple problems with the same truck, in multiple states! They finally gave us a new truck, but that meant everything had to be unloaded from one truck into another! Let's just say that Uhaul is refunding a lot of our money, and we will never be renting from them again!

Anyway, the point of my post is that since my husband had already moved ahead of me, a large percentage of the truck was my classroom. If anyone ever thinks that schools don't need more money, or that teachers don't really need to be paid more, please send them over to my garage! It is absolutely amazing when I look at all my school stuff mounded up in one place, and I think about how much money I've spent over the years. Not to mention the hours upon hours I've spent scouring yard sales and thrift stores for cheap books, and driving from office supply store to office supply store because they will only sell me five 1 cent folders at a time!!

 Easily 90% of that stuff belongs in my classroom!

Those shelves on the right are two deep!

Let's just hope that I get a teaching job quick so we can reclaim the garage before it snows!

Oh wow! That is a lot of stuff! I am sure if I gathered all of mine in one spot, I would have just as much. We teachers do seem to accumulate a lot of stuff. :-)
I pray you find a job soon!
