Oh, boy, am I excited for this weekend.
That’s an understatement.
I also woke up about 10 times this early morning, alternating between the thinking: what time do I have to get up? with, Oh no! Am I late for school?! But I had nothing to do but sleep in.
I’m so appreciative of this weekend in particular because I’ve gone away for the last two weekends. Although that means I am very fortunate, and I do appreciate what I did on those weekends, the last one involved me being away from school on Friday, so I felt EXTRA behind.
I was pulling 10-12 hour AT SCHOOL days all week. Getting up before 6 a.m. Wondering if I could just quit right now 🙂 But I made it through my 1st official 5-day week. 2 weeks ago, it was due to Jewish holidays, and last week, I took Friday off for a very important wedding.
It was tough. A lot of time and energy above those 10-12 hour days at school.
One night I went to bed at 7:30pm! But the other nights I hardly got adequate sleep.
I did get an encouraging talk with a teacher who overheard me talking to a friend of mine working at a cafe where I was picking up food hurriedly one day. She told me I should still hang in there.
Teaching is not easy. Year 3 has been the hardest in some ways. Maybe if I’d stayed at the same school, and had the same material, it would be easier. But, what can I say, I like a challenge? I guess?
That’s an understatement!
