Ye Olde Rat Race
I went back to school yesterday. The students return on Thursday.
This is how the parking lot looks when I arrive each morning. Well, in the winter it looks like this only much much blacker. That's my lonely little jalopy sitting in "my" parking spot.
Oh, whoa to anyone who randomly happens to come earlier than me and takes my spot - - - but that's another story for another blog post.
Last year I wasn't ready to return to school and it felt like half the summer was still ahead of us. This year I'm OK with the return - - - possibly because our weather is really cool for August.
Anyway, yesterday when I went into my room, LOOK what greeted my on my desk:
Do you see that personal, handwritten note???? You know, the one beside my calendar and in front of my texts?
This is from one of my blogging friends, a former graduate of our school, whom I've NEVER met in person!!!! I'm still WAITING to hear the story of how he got into my classroom to leave me this surprise.
Thank you, Joel, it MADE MY DAY.
