Taking a day
Yesterday, I had to take a day off from school. It was hard. I didn't allow myself to stress about all the things I should be doing or could be doing. When my mind would wander toward assessment work, plans, upcoming report cards or ideas for differentiating in math, I had to intentionally turn my direction of thinking. It was good...I think. Now it is Sunday and I am beginning to overload. I have to get to the grocery, hockey practice, the library and then to school before the day is over. I was up early and accomplished quite a bit but the day will feel like it is shorter with the time change. Is there ever enough time? I am taking deep breaths and am off to jot down some plans. 24 days until Thanksgiving break. Happy Sunday.
