Note: This post was written in August. As I was at the start of my student teaching, I was even too busy to find a picture and post this. What's missing here (gloss, graphics) says more than even the words I wrote...
I miss reading....for fun - not for information
I miss writing....babbling away with my keys clicking
I miss my brain. It used to be mine, but I donated it to the education department this year.
I miss sitting out back in the shade watching my boys play.
I miss biking, hiking, and fishing.
So many things I need an entire 'nother summer to catch up on.
Just a few days of summer left and I will be reaching the final hurdle in becoming a teacher - student teaching. I keep wondering how I will manage. Will I be good? Will I flop and have that big "growing" experience?
I just keep thinking that soon my life will be mine again - all mine.
I will read for fun - out back in the shade while the kids jump on the trampoline. I will transition from retail supervisor to substitute and tutor until I get that golden contract.
I think I need to make a paper chain and tear off a link each day until graduation. Maybe place a stack of books under it that I'm going to dive into .....
