Well, I'm back!
Hello Everyone, I have finally returned to my blogging world after a long break. It has been a hard year and while I have wanted to sit and blog often there just wasn't the time or energy. So here is the jist of it, I started off the school year 30lbs lighter thanks to an ugly strain of cyclospora (so my body was weak going into the year). September seemed uneventful as I happily awaited my brothers wedding which was going to send me from Texas to New Jersey and 3 days off of school but then my husbands grandmother passed and a 2nd trip to New Jersey was planned, putting me 2 more days in the hole. 5 days gone by mid October and then the big stuff started, are you ready?....Appendicitis with emergency surgery over thanksgiving break, tried to go back to work early and didn't even make it 3 hours! Another 5 days down the tubes. Then the next week the flu, of course setting me back another 2 days. Are you keeping track that is 10 days before Christmas! We only have PTO for 7! I slept through my Christmas break to try to go back strong and January went well, even February was uneventful but then March hit....Emergency gallbladder surgery, out 2 full weeks, if you are seeing the issue that is 20 days! Who misses 20 days of school? Well, apparently I do but I have to say that once returning from spring break I was able to finish the year without a hitch. My Administration, fellow teachers and families were awesome. I am thankful to every single one of them. They are the only reason I am able to come out smiling on the other side! So what is the point to my sharing this with you? To let you know that God is good all the time, He will surround you with everything you need in your situation. To encourage you that even tough years can have happy endings and to let you know that no matter what we think we are not superman or superwoman and that was my lesson learned! When I pushed too hard God took me down and I am forever grateful that He loves me enough to see me through anything. So what is next for The Crazy Pre-K Classroom? My plan is to enjoy this summer with my two boys, work on Teachers pay Teachers Units and to self publish my first book through Amazon. AND SLEEP!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh, and did I mention we also had a huge, horrific, terrible, anxiety provoking case of lice from November to February!!! Till next time, Christine
