It’s officially spring break, my friends.
One whole week.
For one whole week I won’t have to look at Sarah’s snotty nose
or Calise’s blank expression
listen to Krishon whine
or Semija tattle
see Gysai dance around and listen to him eternally make weird noises
They’ve gone wild this week and I’m glad to have a break.
No grading papers
or writing lesson plans
or cafeteria duty
or going to meaningless meetings
or tolerating stubborn and insensitive coworkers
or nagging the class thousands of times to listen or clean up or be quiet.
No alarm clocks
or wondering from bed if I’ll make it through the day
or dashing around like a mad woman because I’ve waited until the last moment to get up.
No rushing to appointments after work
or being so wrung out with exhaustion that I can’t function in the evenings.
Yes, friends, spring break is upon us.
Picture of the day:
Still hopeful for my rainbow baby but it ebbs and flows now tempered with doubt and worry. Still loving and missing my Sweet Pea with every heartbeat but the pain seems muted now to persistent emptiness.
