Ella- I have to hold her soon or I will go bonkers
Jon and Sarah and Greg and Sarah- :( I will see them soon I think. Greg and Sarah will be heading up in a few weeks, and if Jon and Sarah can't get up here, I will be going south at some point in March/April.
Mike- How can the elusive Mike live 2 miles away from me and I haven't seen his face in weeks either??
MY SISTER!!!! ARGH We must plan a sister weekend- I'm thinking that whole downtown Minneapolis scene might be VERY cool. But I'd be happy with a cheap motel in a small town at this point.
Any sort of warmth in the out of doors........ and my flipflops which are sulking in a corner.......
Teaching only in one school building. I have so many kiddos every day. I remember when I used to teach just grade school art, and then for a while, just HS art. I could commit so much time to prepping for different things and creating new projects and having that enthusiasm every single day. I am on auto pilot most of the time, and barely keeping ahead of the game. February is the toughest month in Education, guys. Trust me on this one.
My optimism. I want to stay in bed. I want to run away. I want to eat chocolate and cupcakes until I can eat no more. I understand that there are people in this world that have it bad- and I am pretty lucky and undoubtedly spoiled in some way or another..... however this does not make me feel all that much better. Because it is February and it is a LONG way before we get our spring break- like not until April. And every one is getting sick and/or testy and/or tired.
So, I will take myself off of this couch and get myself going today and do the best I can, but I am hoping to solve some of these missing issues. soon. please.
and THAT will give me some joy
