Why I’m not at school today

It’s the first day of school, and I am not there.  I’ve hardly been here (my blog) at all, either.  Here’s why:  last year was a really tough year for me, and I could barely make it through each day without a nap.  I had no energy left over for my family, let alone my blog.

So I decided to take a year off.  This year I will be at home, able to be here for my sons.  One is preparing for college, the other preparing for high school, and both of them need a mother who has time for them, and is not in bed with another migraine.  I’m also taking the year off to get my health back on track, so I can start exercising again (I didn’t exercise for nine months last school year!), sleeping better, and reducing my migraines.  One of my goals is to start meditating as a daily practice.

I’m also hoping to write more, now that I will have the time.  So that is my explanation for where I have been, and where I am now.  I’m glad to be back here, and hope that you will join me on my year off, as I reflect on my teaching and prepare for next year, when I will most definitely be back in the classroom with my preschoolers.
