2. a feeling of joy and pride
I've had one of those days where everything came together and I got a ton of work accomplished. My to do list is shorter than it was yesterday. I almost feel prepared for students on Thursday.
I've got friends having babies and makin' babies all over the place, their prayers finally answered.
My daughter, my B, has her first day of school tomorrow. A big kindergartner with big dreams.
Tears will be impossible to hold back tomorrow morning at 8:30.
I'm excited to see students I haven't seen since May. I feel so much less distracted than I have in the past three years. I'm suddenly not a teacher on probation, my position feels a little more permanent. I know a little bit more of what I'm doing than I did last year. I'm getting a system that works for me. There is a sadness lingering way below the surface, but I refuse to let it ruin a day like today. Today, the angels were smiling down on me.
This day, this perfect day. Everything aligned to make it the perfect, productive day.
Now I'm sipping a cold beer, waiting to watch Olympics coverage.
It's days like today that can keep a girl going for weeks.
Days like today that make a girl perky again.
