I awoke early and refreshed today! Unusual...as ever since I started the school year, I have felt exhausted and unmotivated once my work day is through. (I mean I even missed my OWN linky party this past week!! I've been sleeping in "that" extra 20-30 minutes, thus eliminating my early morning blogging routine. I didn't even realize I didn't post the linky till the next day....THIS is not like me!)
My mom recently mentioned she missed my blog and this week my husband even ever so gently
told me I was crabby. LOL!! And to more or less:
But how do you "Snap Out of IT??" Admittedly, I have been in that out-of-sorts mood all week. You know that one that finds you out of balance between play and work...frustrated with yourself, that you aren't enjoying your hobby...finding yourself missing it yet, at the same time, you can't even imagine doing one more thing. (I know, I'm so crazy sometimes!) With that said, my creative energy has not been misspent. I truly have the most wonderful group of second graders this year! They energize me, brighten my day, and we're off to a wonderful start together. But the school year has taken some time and energy to get a settled into...
...and as I sit here and type and inspire myself by googling Mary Engelbreit images, I realize that just getting this school year started really has taken all the creative energy I have. As along with thirty wee ones, I'm also mentoring three new teachers, adjusting to a new teaching partner, new principal and vice-principal....oh and my IA just quit, so training a new IA next week. (Oh my gosh...no wonder I've been tired!) But! I'm not complaining...just reflecting out-loud I guess. (Thanks for "listening") Thankfully, there is something wonderful about turning the page on the calendar that helps me "Snap out of it"! For with October here I feel:
My school year is off to a wonderful start. And seriously, just the anticipation of enjoying the taste of pumpkin-spice lattes, the sounds of leaves crunching underfoot as Jackson and I walk, the feel of cozy sweaters and the sight of candles aglow around the house is helping me "Snap out of it!".
I just want to thank all of you for your continuous support and patience of my little spot here is cyber space. I have many posts planned for October and am looking forward to catching up with all of your blogs and projects as well. Tuesday Archives has a Fall theme to it this month and France awarded me the One Lovely Blog Award...so I'm also looking forward to posting and passing on that honor as well. Happy Fall! Hello October!
October's themes are posted on my sidebar.
