Gone are the lazy summer days of not working.
I was not suppose to be working full time this year, I was actually not even suppose to work part time. I was simply suppose to substitute. Mostly on Tuesdays.
So far this school year, I have worked EVERY single day.
I have found myself in a long term sub slot in my classroom from last year. Mind you, I'm not really complaining.
I love what I do and I love the kids I work with.
But it sure makes for a hectic, crazy night when I get home. I normally have a little over an hour to help two kids get homework done, get dinner cooked, get kids fed, dressed for practices and out the door.
Housework has fallen to the wayside these days. But everyone seems happy and they're still alive so that's all that matters to me right now.
My oldest daughter made this grass head during summer camp. It has taken up residency in an older potter on the deck. While I'm sure she has long forgotten about it, I have not. Every night I look at Grass Head and just smile. Smile wishing I had his life, smile remembering the lazy summer days but most importantly smile loving this hectic life we have created.
