At this moment much of my time is being spent doing
|This is the view out my windows. Jealous? |
I can't wait for a crisp, clear day!
|Can you tell there were kid fingers on my phone?|
I woke up at 3 and HAD to create a Prezi. J threatened to drug me to keep me asleep. I think he might be serious...
Yesterday, I taught at the start of class instead of fighting over seating charts. And my class from hades came around beautifully. The heavens opened up and shone down upon me. But then the next class decided to push the envelope. <sigh> I was so disappointed after the high from getting that other class to come to my side. Ah well. My psych class at the end of the day was so much fun. I am grateful to end with them. And I discovered that the Coke machine takes credit cards - that is dangerous territory, my friends.
I left right after the kids. Headed to a bar with a good portion of the rest of the staff. Met the staff and the teacher I replaced. And I felt instantly at home. Our secretary is dating a FF. (Who, by the way, gave me a hard time about teaching for 3 days and still showing my face in the bar with them. And then told me I would fit right in!) I met 2 other FFWs. We really are everywhere... The staff reminded me of the first staff I worked with in MPS and I felt a tad homesick for a bit. And then I realized that perhaps, this amazing staff is going to be like the one I found myself pining for.
We were definitely in the trenches. The last time I found myself in a battle zone, I was looking for the greener pasture. Even when I found the perfect teaching job - with no real discipline and everything in technology I could hope for - I was feeling empty. Maybe this is the reason. Maybe this is where I am meant to be. These kids need someone and if the school is looking to bring back the neighborhood to it, I am needed there, as well. It is 5 minutes from home. And I have a beautiful view.
That gives me reason to look forward to the next gathering...and this school year.
Life is good. Hubby was on shift last night and headed straight for the race track. We have football this afternoon and then my hubby should be home by dinner. Debating on whether or not to take the kids to the airport for the Honor Flight Homecoming or if it is okay to just veg.
Hug those firemen and read to your muppets. Laundry will wait, time will not. Peace.
