Bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow
there'll be sun
Just thinkin' about tomorrow.......

Tomorrow, school is in session for my little 3rd graders and I am nervous as heck! I haven't taught 3rd grade for about 8 years. I am used to big 7th graders that give me mean looks if I touch their shoulder to see how their day has been.
During open house last week, a parent wanted to take a picture of myself and the collaborative teacher with their child. The other teacher instinctively put her arm around the child. I, of course, did not. I am used to waiting until I am familiar with the student to know if I can hug them or put my arm around them. I am in a whole new world now. I guess I gotta start hugging away! :)
I still am in disbelief, especially at the start of a new school year, that I am a teacher. This is my 10th year teaching and still...still...I wonder how I am. I do not like talking in front of people, I do not like small talk or talking to strangers, and yet this is what I do every single day of the school year. What is life if you do not push yourself our of your comfortable zone? I guess.
I haven't had much time for writing my novel (or novella) lately and I feel so anxious about that. I miss my characters; I miss the schizophrenic main character whom I am completely in love with; I miss the confident leading lady who just wants to kick some ass right now; I miss the feeling I have when I am writing and the story goes a way I wasn't expecting.
Hopefully, I will have the time to immerse myself in that story soon. Hopefully.
