2.5 days=sweet freedom!
Don't get me wrong, y'all. I absolutely love what I do everyday; I love my students, I love my coworkers, I love my principal, I love the sweet family that is my school environment.
Nonetheless, this pregnant teacher just needs a few days off to recharge before the holiday blur of the next month. In four days, I'll be heading HOME to my people in Tennessee. To say I'm excited is the understatement of the year.
In order to not explode with excitement, I'm staying busy these next few days with my kiddos...maybe you're already thinking ahead to the cooking your have ahead of you next week. I know I have started daydreaming about it. Pregnancy hormones+Thanksgiving dinner=this could get ugly.
