Most people are counting the days to the winter break, but this is my first full week back after six weeks of being an invalid. It's wonderful to see everybody again and to be part of all the daily stuff that goes on, but holy cow, when did the kids start moving so fast in the halls, and when did the stairs get so steep? And didn't I used to be able to have three conversations at once, take notes, and listen to the teacher, too? Now if I can get the right kid's name to come out of my mouth at the right time, I feel accomplished.
And it is SO dark at five thirty when I have to get up!
How many more days is it until winter break? I could sure use it!
