been so long since I’ve sliced. I’ve almost forgotten why Tuesday’s have always been so special. But hopefully things are settling down, and I am beginning to settle into my new role as an empty nester and life may be getting back to normal. Let’s just say I’ve been eating more than my share of cupcakes and Sonic Blasts these days…what’s another mile on the treadmill right?
My hope that she would miss me so much she would beg to come home and live happily ever for the rest of my life is NOT going to come to fruition. She loves her college life. She loves her dorm. She has even decided she loves her name because whenever she meets someone new they say “I love your name!” I am happy for her. Really I am. But did she just have to “love” it so much?
At least I have had school to keep my mind off my heartache. We have been back in school four days today. My kiddos are very sweet and very chatty…all the time…even in line…and when the teacher is talking…or other kiddos…we are working very hard on procedures.
I do have some interesting news. I have been chosen to write a post for the “Really Good stuff” blog (you know the people that have The Really Good Stuff teacher supplies). I got the email last week, and will submit it in September. I am very excited. And nervous. And worried. I am writing about the common core. Of course I’m not sure what about the common core I’ll be writing about. But lucky for me I have plenty of time in the evenings to think about it!
