It’s Travel Season Again

Look at all that room! Ah, the good old days of air travel.

I’m packing up to hit the road again, and I’m kind of dreading it. Maybe because I’m not hitting the road at all, I’m hitting the skies. Hello seatbelt extender, it’s been a while since I’ve seen you, but we’re going to get cozy over the next couple of weeks. Six flights in all. Yuck. At least two of them feature my sweetheart, and two feature my son, and the final two feature a colleague, so I won’t be shoehorned between total strangers, but still…

Time to grin and bear it. If I have a good attitude, it will make it so much less unpleasant. Here’s to a positive attitude, and safe travels for all. Buckle up!

Time for Fall Break

macro-watch-time-leaves-autumn-hd-wallpaper.jpgThis is it. The last day before break. An exciting day to be a kid, and an even more exciting day to be a teacher.

We’ve completed the first quarter of the school year. We have our routines in place. We’ve identified our areas of strength and our areas of greatest concern. We’re wrapping up parent teacher conferences today. We’ve accomplished quite a bit. Now it’s time for a break.

It’s time to step back, reconnect with family and friends, and reenergize. It’s time to reevaluate where we’re going and make adjustments as necessary. It’s time to rest. Really, really rest.

It’s time to sleep in (as if), stay up late, and read lots. It’s time to visit mom, take the dog for longer walks, and catch up on those household chores that have been put off. It’s time to get that long overdue haircut and pedi, drop off donations, and feel accomplished if the only thing that happens that day is cooking a good meal by dinnertime. It’s time. Precious, precious time.
