Admit It

Teaching + The beginning of September =
1. I can't stop my mind from racing. Ever. In the car, in the shower, in the hallways, in bed, Ever. 
Which leads me to...
2. I can't sleep. 
and on the off chance I do nod off, I wake up in no time to the same old tune~ books need labeling. papers need copying. bins need organizing. students need something to learn.
ahhh. lessons need planning.

It is 9:45 pm and tomorrow is Back to School Night.
I drove home from work an hour ago with a list a mile long of things to get done, but as soon as I saw my sweatpants it was over. 
So now I'm eating Pho and starring off into space, because, well,
I'm just going to go ahead and say it~
I don't know how to function without Oprah.
And function at the beginning of the school year without her?
Forget it.
Last week I was reduced to watching Matt Damon on Regis & Kelly.
And don't get me wrong- I really like Regis and Kelly.
And I like Matt Damon for that matter.
But they're no Oprah.
And days like today call for the One and Only.
Which is why...

I signed up for Oprah's 'Life Class' that begins in mid-October. 
There- I said it.
I have no idea what it is and no idea what it entails. 
All I know is that the commercial said it's going to be "the closest thing she'll do to the Oprah show".
I had to register for it, because there's only enough space in the class for one million of her closest friends.
Which now means I am one of her closest friends.
But we all knew this already.
(Now don't be jealous, Gayle)

So that's not so bad, right?
Except that I may or may not have also checked the box indicating that I'd like her to send me the complimentary Oprah Life journal that's being advertised to go along with the class. 
And the box that enters me into a contest to meet Oprah in California.
But that's it (for now), I promise.
