It's been a beautiful life
Oh I've been along for one hell of a ride
And even though I may be fallin' apart, oh
It's been a beautiful life*
Three more days, plus one more admin day where we'll all have breakfast together, then go off our separate ways for the summer.
Except I won't be coming back in the fall.
This week is so jammed full of stuff I have to do... packing up my classroom, getting my house ready for a few guests on Friday night, grocery shopping and packing for a camping trip this coming weekend... it's all going to be one big blur and then it will be over, and I won't even know what's happening. THREE MORE DAYS. That's not enough time!!! There are kids I still want to see, staff I still want to work with... a community I still want to be a part of...
I feel so numb during the day. I'm running on autopilot just to get things done: coming in before 8am, staying till after 8pm, working through recess, working through lunch. Teaching, packing, cleaning, sorting, filing. But it's times like now, where I sit here and realize, pardon the language, holy SHIT, there are only THREE. DAYS. LEFT. when I just lose it emotionally.
I really am falling apart...
