… & many more weeks to go
It seems if you work 12 to 14 hour days getting a classroom ready for 180 days of learning, it will exhaust you. So much so, that when I hit the pillow last night I slept from that moment until the 5:15 am alarm woke me. Miraculous…I slept through the whole night. I awoke refreshed and felt something like….
It seems that Sister Keith Marie*, my second grade teacher was right about guardian angels watching out for us. This was the way I always envisioned the guardian angel who looked after me. I actually remembered that I gave my angel a name…her name was Melinda.
Why Melinda?…I had a neighborhood friend, Melissa (always loved her name) and Glinda, the good witch from the Wizard of Oz. Mel + inda = Melinda.
Given the week of overwhelming curriculum changes, new books and schedules I am thinking that my former guardian angel is ready for retirement.
See what I mean…
I will be placing an ad for a new guardian angel.
