S is for Summer Slump

 I can't be the only teacher that experiences this. It happens every summer.  The first month of summer I am super motivated.  I am excited to get things done (things that I wanted to do during the school year, but never had time to do).  Then, after about a month, I get into a slump.  I start slowing down.  I am not as productive.  I start sleeping in a little later and stay in my pajamas well past an acceptable time.  As I am typing this right now, I really should be showering so that I can head to my new school.  My car is packed with boxes of classroom stuff.  I need to drop them off, so that I an actually fit my children in my car.

Am I alone?
