I had to take a step back.
About a month ago, I cracked open my fortune cookie at the same time my girls cracked open theirs. Here is what they said, in order from oldest (me) to youngest (Lulu):
Ignoring the last two (God save the Queen and me), mine sent a little dart of guilt right into my heart. The fortune was justified in giving me a little lecture. Between teaching a new grade, creating resources for TPT and blogging I realized how small my focus point had become.
So I took a month off.
I had to search for my laptop (when was the last time I didn't actually know right where it was?), dust it off and crack it open.
And here we are.
Please tell me how to do it. How do we ever really find balance?
Or, if you really love me you'll tell me there is no such thing as balance and we teacher/moms are all just getting by the best we can. That would actually make me feel better.
Happy New Year, dear ones.
