I know. I’ve been away for a while. Truth be told, it was a justifiable neglect. However, neglect is still neglect and for that, I apologize. And will have to do so again because, going back to work after having several months off is a pain that my body is just not used to yet and my eyes are starting to blur at quarter after 8. Frightening.
Buuuuut, here is a tidbit of our vacation in Bar Harbor, MN, where my husband and I each took turns longingly staring into the misty ocean spray asking God why he sent us to West Orange, NJ and not to live peacefully in the mountains where we seem to belong. Alright, so I complained, limped and even (cried) a little climbing up said mountain, but the view was sure worth it when I got there. Kinda.
Sigh. For now, I am sitting on my couch planning my lessons for the barrage of teenage-dom about to enter into my life for the next ten months. The good news is, you get lots of funny classroom stories once again.
