And Now For Something Completely Different....


Sometimes when I write a really serious blog like yesterday's post, that gets so much positive feedback, I really struggle with what to write about the next day. Do I continue writing in the same vein and tell you about how we didn't celebrate Christmas for two years because we were so poor (Nah, I'll save that for next Christmas)? Or do I just get really mundane- the weather is great; I had yogurt for the third time this week?


Decisions, decisions, decisions. I have one day left in my Christmas break from my glamorous life as a high school teacher. I am dealing with this with some mixed emotions. I really don't want to go back, but I know once I get back in the swing of things, I'll be just fine. I am trying to sweeten the sting of being forced to sleep normal hours and bathe regularly and speak to people by taking my new Keurig coffee pot to my classroom. But will that be enough?


The second semester always flies by, so I have no doubt that this one will follow suit.  But I'm really struggling to find the motivation right now amidst sleeping in and taking naps and being even more lazy than usual! At the same time, I'm trying not to complain because I am saving my whole lecture on how being a teacher is not this cushy 8AM-3PM, no nights, no weekends, summers off for the END of the school year.

It's amazing how quickly we get out of a schedule. A couple of days of sleeping in and suddenly everything's flipped over and you (or is it just me?) are ready to run away to Never Never Land and live the happy, carefree life of a Lost Boy. Who wants to run away with me?

I agree.... I am not ready for Matt to go back to school because that means that I will have to go back to getting up early, getting dressed, and getting out of the house before the sun even comes up! No more sleeping late and staying in my jammies til noon! Well, at least if I'm up & dressed maybe that will give me some motivation to get something done!!!! Matt is off til Tuesday so I guess I have one more day than you do!!! =)

I know it's a casual outfit, and I like a lot of your outfits, but just had to comment on this one. So simple, but I really love how this looks on you!
Does that mean I have to start bathing the kids and getting them to bed again? ugh. My husband just bought Jet Fuel K-cups for his Keurig, sounds like you may need some for your first week back!

Ugh!! I haven't even thought about getting Sean back into a routine! Thanks a lot ;)

And thank you for commenting on the outfit! Jet Fuel sounds about right...

I don't have to leave home most days but I still dread having to get up and get kids fed and off to school by 7:25 am. I am NOT a morning person! Yellow is your color! This is one of my favorite outfits so far!
