It is Monday..... and not just any Monday....it is the Monday before Spring Break. I never thought I would make it. I have felt like the little engine that cold for the last two months. Every day about the end of third block....I begin telling myself....."I think I can." "I think I can." You see, our break is late this year and I am tired. No, that is an understatement. I am past tired....I am pure T exhausted. I am not the only one who is tired....the kids are tired too. Any other year our break would have been two...almost three weeks ago. It feels like this year has just stretched out into the great oblivion. One bright spot in an otherwise gray existance is that my friend, Trina, has begun yet another countdown in her room. She put cute little green slips up across the board with the number of days we have left.....as of this morning.....(not counting the weekend....or Spring Break....we have 34 days left until Summer. It makes me want to shout! The day is almost over....and Spring Break is another day closer. Will I make it....who knows....today..."I think I can....I think I can." Ask me again on Friday. Have a great day my friends!
I am a woman who wears many hats and loves them all. I am a singer - I sing with the group Still Magnolias. I was part of the original First United Methodist Church Arbor Praise Team until we moved. After 24+ years of teaching English 11 and Spanish I - II at Benjamin Russell High School I decided to take a job closer to home. I now teach Spanish I & 2 at Randolph Co. High School and Wadley. I thought I was getting close to retirement and looking forward to it, but decided to move my cheese and try something different. I am a preacher's wife and a preacher myself. My husband Frank is the pastor at Rock Mills United Methodist Church and I am the pastor at Midway (Wedowee). It has made our conversations interesting, to say the least.
