Spring Break is Finally Here!
Friday, April 03, 2009
Like every other teacher in my school, I feel like I have been barely hanging in there for the last few weeks. My head hurts, my vision is blurry, I feel weak, and know that if one more person needs one more thing from me, I might snap. Actually, no. That isn't true. Snapping would require energy, of which I have none. However, I do know that when I hear my name "Miss Tap", I seem to have developed a tick.
The only thing that I have been thinking of for the past two weeks, is having this next glorious week off to work in my garden. I feel like I haven't felt the wind on my face or seen the sun in a month! No demands. No one calling my name. No one arguing, whining, fussing, fighting, or pouting. Just me, and the dirt, and tiny little seeds that hold the promise of fresh, organic vegetables later on.
When I return to school, I'll be refreshed, refueled and ready!
