My husband started back to work today. He’s been somewhat anxious most of this week and understandably so. It can be a tough transition from not working for a few months to going back to a firm, full schedule (not a complaint, just the truth).
I’ll head back on August 8th. I’m starting to feel it, the anxiety and the tension. It’s the knowing how insane the days are once we return, and then yet again, when students return 2 weeks later.
I’ll be starting year 22 as a teacher. I’m not worried about meeting my students or getting to know them (this is my favorite part!), but it’s the anticipation of the endless crazy days with too much to do and not enough time to do it.
We say we’ll do our best not to overwork, to make sure we take time out for ourselves. We reflect and make plans on how to eat healthy and stay mentally balanced. We mean well.
I’m grateful for this time off. With Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, the time to rest cannot be more important. This past spring, I had to take a medical leave. I’m hoping I won’t have to do that again any time soon, but also, I need to be ok if it does happen (I’m not so good with this part!)
Anyway, I’m not sure what this post is about, but thanks for reading and listening.
I hope this week is going well for all of you! Peace, my friends -belle
