Where has the time gone?
Even as I type that last question, I'm wondering why it seems like the days are crawling by, yet the weeks and months somehow fly by?
Time is a weird thing, my friend.
Teaching has me busy, as usual.
It seems like as of late, I have been overly stressed.
Teaching is a stressful job.
But when you combine it with a perfectionist who also has a fear of failure, I've got a line of new wrinkles and a patch of gray hairs.
When you are doing your best, what you are doing is enough.
I am doing my best. It.is.enough.
Hubs and I have quite a tradition on Monday nights. He plays video games (shhh....he wouldn't want me to tell you that) and listens to a soccer podcast to catch up on his Swansea City, while I sit on the couch and try not to make a decision in preparation for the next school day.
I'm an aunt!
My sister had her baby on Friday.
Blake Avery is her name and she is SO precious!
I would show you a picture of her, but my brother in law is a little paranoid about photos of his baby on the internet. We have currently been forbidden to share any photos of her on facebook or instagram. Whomp whomp.
It's such a shame. She is beautiful.
School has been on my mind a lot recently.
I'm not the teacher I want to be.
I'm not sure how to change, but I think a start would be to reflect on the teacher I AM right now.
Winter? The Earth called. It wants the sun back. Pleaseandthankyou.
Treat yo' self.
Any Parks and Recs Fans out there know what I'm sayin?
My fib is that I am the oldest child. I am the baby of the family and it shows in most situations :)
Okay, if you are like me, and need a little inspiration to get you through this (Valentine's) week, you have to read this blog post!
You matter, just the way you are.
