Since today was a holiday, and with thankgsiving coming up, I feel like November is going to be a breeze. Four days this week, then the weekend, then 2 days with my students, then a glorious 5-day weekend. I’m not sure if this is confirmed, but I have written in my planner that we have a professional development day on Friday the week after Thanksgiving. I feel like X-mas is almost here! The mythical but much talked about week off from work that everybody likes to talk about. I refuse to believe that it actually exists. I hear that teaching gets better after Christmas and it had better because I can’t keep it up like this much longer. I find myself thinking a lot about next year and starting fresh with a new bunch of students. I won’t make many of the same mistakes I made this year. While I love my current students I am eager to think about how much smoother next year will be.
I have my 6 year dating anniversary with my husband on December 2, which will be here before I know it. It is mind boggling to think that we have been together for that long.
