I am typing this at 5:45 in the morning. Crazy? Maybe. Happy? Yes. Today is the last Monday for this school year. Tomorrow will be the last Tuesday, Wednesday the last Wednesday... you get my point. IT'S THE LAST WEEK OF SCHOOL. I am so stinkin' excited I decided to throw a sale in my TpT store in honor of this most wonderful of weeks.

It's not that I don't love my class. I do. But, I'll tell you right now that with the year I've had this year, ain't nobody going to be more thrilled than this girl when I smell that diesel and hear those bus engines take off Friday afternoon. I'm sure there will be a tear in my eye as I say goodbye to my most challenging, hardest, most exhausting, and most emotional year yet. I seriously cannot wait to wave goodbye to it and hope for a much better year in August.

I hate sounding so negative, so beaten, and so tired. Don't we get that way sometimes? Aren't we allowed? Please, tell me we are. I know several of you out there are feeling it, too. We work so hard to make a difference in this old world. That fight takes its toll on you. It's a part of the calling, I guess. And what doesn't kill us only makes us stronger. I know I've gotten stronger this year! Even though I feel like a limp little rag doll, I know now that there are certain things I can handle, battles I can fight, and bullies I can stand up to that I just didn't have the wherewithal to face before. Here's to the end of the most difficult 180 days of my life and the beginning of a glorious summer! Oh, and here's the link to my store! Enjoy the sale!
