Today that is going to change.
Last night was a wonderful rejuvenation of my soul.
To start with I had a fabulous Open House. I had around 50 parents and future students come in to meet and greet me. In addition to that I had about twenty former students stop by to say hello and to shoot the breeze.
Old students coming back to visit really and truly light up my life. I love when they come back to visit because that usually means I've made some sort of positive impact, and while teaching is my job. Impacting students in a positive way is my passion.
After my gloriously successful Open House, I met up with my best friend and Mom to visit another bestie and have dinner and drinks. This was also soul cleansing. I laughed a lot, I smiled a lot, and I just was able to be myself, and to unwind.
Following that whirlwind dinner I went home. No, not to where I live. I went to my childhood home. I watched the Steelers with my Dad, and then chitchatted with him and my Step-Mom while I watched my niece sleep (she came in sleeping and never woke up!).
I spent the morning with Ms. Cambre playing and eating Breakfast, she was definitely a highlight! Let's just say when I told her I had to go to work and she needed to say bye bye. She came over to me where I was sitting cross-legged on the floor and she sat in my lap facing me and gave me the biggest hug ever. This little girl is the sweetest thing ever and one I am proud to call my niece (notice her shirt says my Aunt is my BFF!). Cambre really helped shake my funk and for that I am entirely grateful!
