March 2021 Slice of Life challenge
It's the end of an era. This is my last week of teaching remotely. There are many things I will be thrilled to say goodbye to and others I will miss. For instance, today will be the last day I will have a quiet morning getting ready for work. My daughters only go into school two days a week and on the three days they stay home they get to sleep in a bit later. There sleep in time is when I get to enjoy a quiet house while I get myself ready for work.
After spring break we all will be going back full time. I will have five days of frenzied mornings where everyone in the house is trying to get themselves ready and out the door in time for school/work. No more silence as my girls sleep in. Instead my oldest will awake before I do and make enough noise with doors, drawers and a whirlwind of throwing brushes and clothes around so she can look just right for her classmates. My youngest will wake with her anti-morning attitude as she stomps around generally pissed-off that she is awake.
This pandemic wasn't all bad. It gave me a few extra quiet, peaceful mornings each week. I want to express my gratitude to the universe for giving them to me. I am going to miss them.
