Life is Good

I came home today to find this in the freezer.

Honestly, because I trust CSB, I wasn't going to question it... but I was going to make one guess. Bacon Vodka... version 1. I asked if he was at least keeping a photo diary... only because it looks that gross, and I totally plan to drink that grossness. Eventually. When it doesn't look quite that gross. And, when it is mixed with tomato juice... and maybe horseradish and worcestershire. I promise to let you know how that works out.

I hope to be back to posting regularly in a couple of weeks. This month has been so busy I have barely had enough time to come up with 140 characters for twitter... let alone type them up and post them.

I considered going into the "list" of stuff that has been sucking up my time, but suffice it to say that I definitely got to a point where I thought I couldn't take more, then "more" happened, and I survived. I am ten school days from summer break, and nine days from the end of my first two credential courses (yes, two... they told me one a month, somehow I ended up with two this month).

I have been told that the first two weeks of summer break are "detox" weeks... it takes that long to unwind, and then you relax for a second before getting into a routine. Once you find that routine, you go back to work, and get right back into a different routine. I'm okay with that.

One of the biggest things I've learned this school year (and yes, a "I survived my first school year" post is definitely in the works), is that teachers earn every single second of their summer breaks. I've never met such a hard working group of people. Teachers amaze and impress me, and now, having been immersed in their ranks for a school year, I have only gained more respect for them. I am honored to have joined this group, and am already looking forward to the fall semester.

Oh wait... I suppose I should survive this one first...

Even though it is not any part of your responsibility, you make me feel like a successful Mother. There is not much better than having a happy kid who is still growing and learning and reaching a little beyond their comfort zone in order to do that.
