So as a teacher I have been enjoying some much needed time off since the beginning of June, all that came to a glaring halt today when I had to go back to work. Of course it was par for the course that I would barely sleep last night because of all the nervous energy associated with going back to work. So as my alarm went off at 5:45 this morning so that I could get in a 2 mile walk, I was already tired. To add insult to injury, It started pouring down rain so I was unable to get my morning walk in. I left my house around 7 to head to work. Work consisted of sitting in meetings almost all day. After losing my morning walk and then sitting all day, my step count is at a severe deficit for the day. As if all that wasn’t enough I have also been having the worst cramps today. It wasn’t a bad day just a rough day. the first day back is always a bit brutal but at least it’s over and I can move on to the next day. This year we have two weeks of in-service which seems almost masochistic but hopefully it won’t be too bad. I did find out today that I have been accepted to a program at Sam Houston State University to get certified to teach Dual Credit English. I can’t wait to start school again this fall!!
