In the words of Annie, the eternal optimist….
“The sun came out.”
Literally and Figuratively.
I got a good night’s sleep last night, and had a really great day with the kids today at school. Also, one of my goals in the new year is to stay later at school each day and finish my grading, and not to bring any work home. This is my second day and it is glorious. My tutor/aide in my room is going to help me keep up with this. I teach 6 sections of math a day, so that makes for a lot of papers to grade. If I get one day behind, it is really hard to catch up. So far, I am loving not having to leave school with a million tote bags.
Anyway, it was a really sunny day, and in general, I felt better about life today.
I mean, it’s not like I am completely over all my sadness and panic, but I felt better able to cope today. It’s probably no coincidence that I got a good night’s sleep last night, and I started the day with mass today. Those two things often lead to really good days.
I am exhausted again tonight. I still haven’t made the best food choices, and I have yet to exercise. But, I will get there. What’s that saying, “Be patient. God isn’t finished with me yet.” ha ha.
Maybe tomorrow will be the day that I end up on the treadmill….
