First Day Back and Anxiety Free

Today was the first day of school, and last night was the first time I ever slept soundly the night before the first day of school. I can't believe how little anxiety I have about this school year. I'm still shocked by the amount of work that is to be done, but I feel completely capable of handling it. And it only took three years!!

Of course, I might have been able to sleep so well because Alan and I didn't get back from a little trip to the Poconos until after midnight last night. I think I need to get out into nature a bit more often. It was fantastic to spend some time around tons of trees and the lake and just be lazy. We spent our travel time discussing the questions from The Book of Questions and sharing music from our iPods (which made me feel a bit like I was in high school, but in a good way.)

Now it's back to the real world though. It's 11:30 and I need to be at work in seven hours, so blogging is probably not the thing I should be doing at this very moment. Until next time...

Good Luck this school year. I have been teaching special ed now for 10 years. The last three have been at the same school. It gets a little easier every year. The next big problem will be what hoops will the administration make you jump through to get through these years.
