A Good Kind of Tired
The first day of school following "spring forward" is always hard, and today was no exception. I actually slept until my alarm went off instead of waking before it, as is my usual habit. It seemed like everything I tried to do as I got ready for work this morning went wrong, including spilling my coffee as I was trying to get out the door.
But the sun was shining.
I didn't need the car seat heater as we drove to school.
I was incredibly productive today. My only break was at lunch. Though I wasn't in any classrooms today, I used my one day of unscheduled time this week to take care of tasks that I haven't had time to get done and to prepare for the two solid days of meetings that begin tomorrow.
I left school as soon as the car line let up and headed to the car wash. I was SHOCKED to see the line was only three cars ahead of me... I had been prepared for a much longer line, and was kind of looking forward to sitting in the silent car DOING NOTHING, LISTENING TO NOTHING for about 15 minutes.
My clean-inside-and-out van was worth it.
Tonight I got to see my 9 year old play in her first real band concert. Let me say... she rocked it on the bass drum!
Looking forward to a great day of learning with my colleagues tomorrow. I'll be a good kind of tired again, then, too.
