I had put together a “French Toast Bake” the night before and popped that in the oven when we started opening gifts, so we had a fuss free WONDERFUL breakfast. My sister found the recipe and shared, it’s a keeper. I had a houseful for dinner and dessert, it was wonderful to have everyone here. It was also wonderful to go to bed that night 🙂 The girls and I made a return today and came right back home. It was a low key day and I have to admit I enjoyed not feeling as though I “had” to be doing something. I have mountains of laundry to catch up on, but that will still be there tomorrow. I haven’t knit a thing – but I feel no urgent rush – I never finished the girl’s “Knitted Babes” for Christmas, so I will shoot for Valentine’s Day on those.
I am off work this week, but will be going in to move myself upstairs into my own office. I am somewhat torn over this move as I am one of the Computer Teachers at the moment. I LOVE the kids and seeing the excitement and joy on their faces when they master something new. However, I have been working at two jobs simultaneously for much too long and it is finally catching up with me. Along with working with the kids, I also take care of all of the “computer” work for the school, i.e., emergency contact plans, webpage, handbooks, flyers, pamphlets etc. It is all suffering at this point. I will miss being with the kids every day more than I can imagine – I love them all. They are so much fun and come out with the cutest things. Then there is the Junior High, always a challenge, but some kind of wonderful too! I received a gift with a note from one of the young ladies in the 7th grade addressed to the “bestest computer teacher ever”! (she was kidding about her use of the word bestest) – I’ve known her since she was in Kindergarten. So I will be hurting for a while over this. On the bright side, I will still be working with the Junior High two periods a week, on the dark side, I won’t be working with the little ones anymore. Say a prayer for me. I hope that my having agreed to this is the right course of action for me.
I had intended this to be a “quick” post, but here I am spewing my insecurities out to you all! Thanks for listening. Sleep well and enjoy your Tuesday!
