Back to the Grind

So after a very relaxed and unproductive summer, that is unless you count watching gobs of Netflix and Hulu shows inspiring – as I do – I am back at it! No more waking up at 9, sipping on java and reading blogs, moving on to light housework then a long summer nap/rest/ Candy Crush marathon! Yes, while other teacher friends bragged about traveling and completing ultimate house projects, I “did” Lyme time as I like to refer to the time I spend healing.

I’m not sure how much I accomplished in Lyme time, besides maybe adding a few pounds to the 8 I have already put on during this recovery. However, I can say that the fatigue is lessening as are the headaches, both good signs as far as I am concerned!

Starting back for me was August 12th. We had 3 staff days that week and 4 staff days the following week. I survived because I had a day each of those weeks to catch my breath. But this week was the official first week of school for students as well. Starting off strong, I managed to get through the first few days juggling all kinds of things, including 3 separate preps for my English classes. But by yesterday, I was wiped. Now, I am up because I may be over tired? Not sure. Anyway, I’ m proud that I survived the first real week Of school, and I am grateful forsuch a kind and courteous group of young people. While I am apprehensive about my health and holding up day to day, I am still looking forward to growing relationships with my new group of students this year. After, 14 years of.teachning, I sure do love it!
