Okay... so during lunch on Thursday, I was lucky enough not only to receive a visit from Daniel, but the handsome man was carrying lunch and flowers!! He told me he knows it's never fun for me to start work again and he wanted me to know how much he appreciates me! Especially when he knows I hate getting up so early! I cried... I love this man!

So after my first day of school, I was exhausted. I wasn't used to waking up so early, I didn't eat a good lunch and when I got home all I wanted to do was "veg" which is exactly all I did. I got on the computer and then watched TV for the rest of the entire evening. I thought about making dinner, but that's all it was, a mere thought. When Daniel got home a little later - he was absolutely filthy - doing a bobcat job on a piece of property down Old Melbourne Hwy- and he looked more exhausted than I did. And when I ended up opening a can of Chef Boyarde spaghetti for dinner, he didn't make a single complaint (didn't partake of the meal, but didn't complain about it, either). The good man that he is, instead, made his own dinner AND unloaded the dishwasher, reloaded it with the overflow of dishes we continually have in our sink and hand washed the 50 pots that wouldn't fit. He insisted that I not lift a finger, which was wonderful and so appreciated (we both equally detest doing the dishes so when he takes the initiative, I'm grateful!). I'm so glad he let me be a lazy bum when I know he wanted to do the same, and probably deserved it more. When I got home today... the first thing I wanted to do was make him dinner! This is how the whole marriage thing works! I am so grateful for mine!

Well... today was the first offical day of school! I can't believe another school year has started and that this is my 5th school year teaching!! That is wild! I think back to my miserable days as a beginning teacher and I've come a long way since! I think I might actually enjoy it some of the time now! (I think it would be the perfect job if school didn't start at 7:30... maybe 10ish?? I am still not a morning person.) I think what has also helped is that I'm no longer thinking each year will be my last... I'm in it for the long haul and maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised! I still firmly believe in my focal point system - make it to the next holiday and the school year will be over before you know it... Labor day is in just 2 weeks!
