Oh man. It is so nice to finally be home. I call this one of the longest days I have ever had. It all started at 4:15 this morning. I went for my 5:00 workout. Then, I went to work where I had an early morning meeting with parents. I am inheriting a student from another 2nd grade classroom. After school, I attended a computer fair. For an hour and a half, I listened to two presenters who were trying to sell us their product. My school is finally getting a computer refresh after about 7 years. We were supposed to get new computers 3 years ago. Following this meeting, I was able to grab a bite to eat with my colleague. Then, we proceeded to return to school for “Bluegrass Night.” We had a bluegrass band play a mini-concert, and we asked for donations at the door. The donations will support our science program. There was a lot of singing and dancing. It was a fun evening.
I arrived home at 7:30. My poor kids. They were on their own for dinner. My husband is out of town for a business trip, so he couldn’t help out with dinner. However, I don’t envy him. He is in Wisconsin where the weather is 5 degrees!! He called and said he tried to take a walk, but only lasted 3 blocks before he had to turn around and go back to his hotel. He thought he might get frost bite.
I did not get to relax when I got home. My girls had needs. I had to help with homework and find missing articles of clothing. I took some time to check my emails and Twitter. At the present moment, I am typing this blog. Yes, it is wonderful to be home. I can take a few minutes for myself. I can be still in the comfort of my home. I am grateful to be here.
