This was me at 10:55 yesterday…
And this was me at 10:56 yesterday…
Amazing what “freedom” will do for your complexion, eh? School’s out, people! I need just a moment to celebrate and adjust to my new life. I’ll be back to normal in a minute. Until then, here’s a picture of my staff celebrating when the last student left.
That’s my principal in the yellow goggles. He’s a hoot, isn’t he? I was already passed out in the coat closet by this time. It was a good celebration. 🙂
You kill me!
Ha ha.. I felt the same way! 🙂
The best part about being a teacher: June, July & August!
Oh wow. I was thinking how clever you wer with the stock photos and then the Anonymous comment stopped my chuckling wow….
I have been mapping out summer goals for each of my children and myself and house projects and birthdays and…SUMMER IS TOO SHORT!!!
I'm a teacher, I can totally understand!
Becky @ Our Sweet Peas says
Ha! My husband teaches HS Social Studies! He is positively giddy and couldn't wait to celebrate his first free wknd. He works a lot in the summer but he doesn't have to deal with teenage angst (not for about 11 years anyways and then it will be times 2…oy).
Mrs. E says
So cute. Teachers totally understand! At the end of school one year, our staff had a massive and impromptu water fight. (We used the squirt guns we had confiscated from our students!) The cooks used their sprayers in the cafeteria where it began. My favorite, we went in to get the principal and he came out with a battery powered super soaker, zinging water off the office windows! Wheee…the relief of it all! : )

Hi – there are a lot of us teachers round here and we all know how it feels at the end of term!
Unfortunately for me in the UK I still have 6 weeks to go!! :o(
Have a great hol!
Congratulations for making it through another year!
I'm so glad you don't have to wear orange all summer!! 🙂
Miss(es) Canadian Pie says
You're such a hoot. Gotta love school being out!! Summer, here you come!
You're hilarious. I love your humor (as it so closely matches my own.) Congrats on completing another year! Perhaps you should make a school countdown advent calendar for your staff for 09-10? 185 little magnetic metal boxes filled with goodies? Okay…maybe not. Looking forward to seeing what you do when you're not working since what you do when you are is simply amazing! Happy Summer Vacation!!!
HA, HA!!! ten days to go for me!! Love love love the teacher humor…
I understand completely! Yesterday was also my last day of school!! I was So excited and yet EXHAUSTED! Packing up a school year can wear you out!!
I didn't realize you were a teacher, I thought for sure you must do interior design!! What grade do you teach?
SharDon Exclusives says
Funny, funny, funny! Have a blessed rest & come back soon….sharon
SharDon Exclusives says
You DESERVE the rest along with all those in education. How do you do it?
I don't know which one I enjoy the most…your creativity or your hilarious sense of humor! Thanks for all the ways you entertain. Keep up the great work!! 🙂
Seven more days for me…then I am with you!!! Summer, I love you.
That looks just like the party we held yesterday at 12:31 at my middle school! Free at last!
Congrats on making it through the school year! You are funny!
Elizabeth (blue clear sky) says
Congrats! I'm still chuckling. A total of 15 more school days (Secondary/High School)for me but only 6 days of classes, 4 days of exams, a workshop, Grad etc., but come June 26th, hello summer!
Oh, yes……I SO remember almost sprinting out the door as soon as the last student left!!!!!!!!
Award for you on my blog.

Nothing like loving your job – LOL!
I saw in your sidebar that you said you were a teacher, but didn't put 2+2 together until I saw this post. I keep visiting because I love the interior design side of you.
Too funny! We hooted and hollered the minute that last bus pulled away:) Enjoy your summer break!!
Lil' Woman says
Lol…that is hilarious!
And anonymous commenter: it's a joke, lighten up! 🙂
Wait…that's what I say on the FIRST day of school!
John Deere Mom says
Oh, me too! Hallelujah!
Jodee Leader says
Enjoy soaking up the sun this summer!
We had a water war on the last day too, and it was amazing! Have a fabulous summer!!
Oh wow! Way to go me….misspelled words on a teacher's blog! That should have said hysterIcal!!! 🙂
Mrs. Trixi says
You are hillarious. I use to teach at a school before I came home to teach, I know exactly how all of you feel.LOL Have a great summer!!
haha you crack me up!
Aileen Wornos….too creepy!! funny though.
Now that you have all this free time, I say let's road trip it. We'll stop at Taco Bells for you, Starbucks for me and blog our way across thrift stores and garage sales. Wouldn't that be fun?!?
You crack me up. Enjoy sleeping in and some well deserved time to yourself and cleaning up after the dog.

Very cute blog!
