Picking Up Steam

Well, with the busyness that is the beginning of a new school year I have obviously not had much time for pictures.  So I regret that today will not be a true Wordless Wednesday!  :(  But next week I hope to have "First Day of School" pictures reading for posting!  So that excites me and slightly makes up for the lack of pictures today.  But, I had some free time so I thought I would blog anyway.  Blogging every day is also something I am going to have to give up a bit, but that's ok.  I've learned to accept the fact that I won't always have something to say.  Ok, well stop laughing. I know I will always have something to say, verbally (since I rarely stop talking), but I won't always have something to say via blog.  

The school year, although not fully underway yet, has already begun to move along like a well-oiled machine (hence the post title).  I am breezing through organizing, planning, and setting up (WOO HOO) and am eager for the new year to begin.  Today was Registration and I had a blast.  It is for sure a hectic and crazy day, but secretly I love it.  I know weird, but LOVE IT!  I met all of my families, 17 this year (so far, you never know!) so that will be a good-sized class.  

Ok, so here though is a major nerd alert!  Last night, after being hit by another full-on wave of procrastination, decided to finally begin working on my homework for this week.  I figured I'd get half done and then finish the rest tonight.  Well I did that and finished my first half at about 10:30.  But I wasn't tired in the least.  It could have been the giddy excitement about Registration, the copious amount of caffeine I daily consume, or (more likely) a highly combustible combination of the two.  Either way I was too wired to sleep so I thought I would get started on a Keynote presentation (that's like PowerPoint for all you non-Mac users, only BETTER!) for Back to School Night.  (This is the first part of the nerd alert!)  So I'm all hopped up on excitement, caffeine, list-making, and presentation creating.  Before I know it I'm finished with the entire presentation and still not tired.  (Insert second nerd alert section)  So, I decided to finally break down and by the Keynote Remote app for my iPhone I have been wanting for a while.  Hey, even if I only use it once a year for Back to School and show my extreme awesomeness it's well worth the 99¢ right (I thought so!).  Well, doing this just added fuel to the crazed and excited flame.  I stared (literally open-mouthed in awe-struck wonder) at my presentation run with the swipe of my happy little thumb across the iPhone!  Think of the mobility during presentations!  Think of the possibilities!  Calm down (me)!

Long story short (too late?)  I finally forced myself to go to sleep at 11:30.  Oddly enough though I wasn't tired at all today.  Quite the opposite in fact.  Just ask my wonderful wife and awesome co-workers.  (Stop rolling your eyes and nodding Amy and Adam, thanks for the back-up Melanie!).  Ahhhh, the excitement that is the beginning of a fresh new school year!  It's going to be an awesome one!

All is well, still excited and the least bit tired, in Drosche Land.
