I'm back...

... but, in all honesty, probably not for long!

I have lost my "bloggy-rhythm", and I have no idea when I'd have time to look for it, even if I knew where to look! ha!
"Life" is getting in my way in a most serious way right now.

There are only 8 1/2 more school days with students, and I am having a lot of mixed feelings about that... Sad in some ways, because I do love teaching, but happy in some ways too, because I will have more time next year. I know my family will likely be better taken care of with me at home again, but I will SO miss seeing my children every day at school! I love seeing them in the hall and at the lunch table. I love being next door to the nurse's office, because I am the FIRST to know if one of them is feeling a bit puny... I love being friends with their teachers, because I know all the good things AND the bad things that happen every day. Those are the things that I know I will miss. I know I will NOT miss the testing and the stress. I will NOT miss the "day in and day out" grind. So, I know this season in my life will be sad and challenging, but I am trying to be calm about it. Breathe, and just BE. For the first time in my life, I will have time for me. How will that feel? I'm really not at all sure, but I guess I had better get ready to find out!
