A Day Away

I often counsel young teachers to take a day for themselves and never follow my own advice. Today I am listening to myself. Although the underlying reason is the imminent delivery of a new refrigerator/freezer unit, the time without a regulated schedule is necessary. Sitting in comfortable, shabby clothes with my hair in the “icky bun” style is just perfect. I ate a leisurely breakfast, drank my coffee, and enjoyed time talking to my high school senior son before he drove off to school. When he returns this afternoon, I hope to show him the new appliance’s bells and whistles. I left enough work for my students to stay occupied, so I have no concerns about them today. They will be in good hands. It’s time for me.
