Whewwww, what a week!!! We started back to school on Monday and received students on Tuesday. I tell you what, coming back after Christmas break I always notice such a difference in my students. It's like they've grown physically and emotionally.
We have had a fantastic week thus far, but I am one tired sista! I spent so much time during the holidays "playing" and forgot how hard it was to do the day to day grind.
Lots of new things going on for me right now and I am hoping and praying that I can keep my head above water and not lose my connection with my family and friends...
-I am going back to graduate school!!! I am sooooo stinking excited, I can barely stand it. I'm in my 10th year of teaching and I DO love it, but I am wanting to go into another arena of education where I will be out of the classroom. I am so excited to begin this journey, but am asking for prayers that I can keep it all going. You see, when I am a student, I become so type A and get stressed to the max if I am not making all A's. Crazy silly, I know, but that's the type of person I am when it comes to education. I am also hoping that I can stay "present" in Paige's life and not have my nose stuck in books too much. My plan is to do as much school work as I can while P is at dance or gymnastics. My online time will definitely have to take a back burner, but I can live with that. Actually, I think it is healthy.
Another big thing I am adding to my plate is that I am house hunting! Well, actually condo hunting. I am so very thrilled about all of the listings that I have looked at lately. I found the cutest bungaloo style condo that is within five miles from where I live now. It is so quaint and just what I am looking for. I am hoping to have a few more places to look at so I can make a decision. Now is definitely the time to buy!
So that's it in a nutshell! Sorry I am such a slacker at visiting blogs. I do try to drop in on everyone on my sidebar when I see you update. If you don't hear from me, you might want to check either my local Starbucks or Barnes and Noble. I'll be the one with my eyes propped open with toothpicks reading a big textbook :)
Have a great weekend!
