We're baaaa-aaack!

Ah yes. School's in again. Who made the day so freaking long, anyway???? It was pretty funny to see all the satff back and bleary-eyed, trying to get used to the early morning routine again. I do believe I saw one or two intravenous stands with a steady caffiene drip, but I can't be sure. And wow, I don't remember my feet hurting this much at the end of the day.

It was good to be back. Well, once I actually got there, anyway. I had a near paralysing freak-out when I realized as I was getting up at 6:30 this morning that almost all the stuff I had planned to over the holiday was not done. "Maybe if I just stay in bed, it will all go away!!!" But really, it's a holiday. So I don't feel TOO guilty. I just have to kick it into overdrive this week (and next, and next...).

You know what? I actually missed my kiddies! They're so fun and silly and so full of excitement. They totally make me laugh. I think they were pretty happy to be back, too, not that many of them would actually admit it!

Though is it bad that before Christmas break was even over, I was already counting down to spring break??? (10 weeks!)

It'll be spring break before you know it. If you need more time off, surgery worked for me :P, but I think I'll be glad to go back to work, when it's time.

I tried to switch from coffee to tea yesterday morning..... and BOY WAS THAT A MISTAKE. I thought I was going to die from caffeine withdrawal.

I worked at a coffee shop for a year, and that was LIKE having an IV of caffeine directly into my blood stream, it was amazing.

I guess I'll be sticking with my routine of morning coffee, afternoon tea.

Glad your first day back was swell, Hillary!!!!!!!!!

YOU are a good teacher. Me, I couldn't wait for my kids to start back to school so I could get a little peace and quiet, and I gave BIRTH to the critters.

Teachers are my heroes. So take a bow, hero. And dream of warm spring days, just around the corner.

I'm so glad there are teachers like you, Hillary. Relieves my guilt at feeling so happy that school is back! But, I wouldn't have minded some more days to sleep in :)

Oh, make no mistake, I only missed them the morning I was going back!!! I definitely enjoyed my holiday! ;)

But yeah, it's been fun this week to be back and I'm realizing that I really like my class! :)
