and miles to go before I sleep

Some days I live off of the buzz of being swamped with so many good things. My mind is so crammed full that I can forget about the gaping hole in my bank account or the other things I am worried about, like job security or other mid-life do-dads. The high blood pressure I live with adds to the buzz and often seems to help me. Weird, huh?

I had 20 little cuties show up in my classroom today. One cried when he didn't get to play with the cars and trucks. One left the bathroom door wide open while she was taking care of business. And one couldn't cross his legs for a million bucks. It. Was. Awesome.

I can just picture it! Kids are so fun! I bet you are an awesome teacher.

I manage the kitchen in the elementary school I work at and I love the first couple weeks of the new school year, teaching the kids how to figure out what they want for lunch, etc...they can be so funny!

Did you offer the non-crosser a million bucks? Just wondering. We used to offer outlandish bribes for Kid 2 to get out of the tub. Do you want a cake? Do you want a new car? Do you want a trip to the moon? (She just wanted to stay in the tub, thank you very much.)

Hooray for a new school year! Can't wait to hear about the kids' progress that you help them accomplish.

I miss that first day of school with kids in the classroom. You're off to a good start!
