That's the question everyone has been asking me lately about going back to work. Usually with a sad look in their eyes (most of these people are teachers who have 2 more weeks of vacation). As I prepare to head back tomorrow, my answer, surprisingly to some however, is yes.
Don't get me wrong. It's been a fantastic summer. Better than fantastic! After working full-time for the last 2 summers, I have enjoyed every single day of my vacation. We enjoyed traveling, visiting, vacationing and just... being.
School starts in just over 2 weeks, and it will be my first "back-to-school" from this side of the school secretary's desk. I'm glad to a have a bit of experience under my belt as we get started and having nearly 2 weeks without students and teachers should be enough time to clean out (my desk!) and gear up (my energy level!).
I'm also starting running again tomorrow. At 6am. That, I'm not looking forward to so much. I do have a fun running partner and we talk the whole time (when we're not panting) and that I have missed. Not quite sure how I'll feel about it when we move the time to 5am when school starts. Hmm...
