I mentioned to Miss Collins that I have been sort of treating this blog like a 'scrapbook'. My goal has been to go back to things that have happened throughout the year, or over the years and spend some time pondering them, because let's face it....even though this is supposed to be a 'slice' of what my life is like every day for a month, not that many interesting or poignant moments happen every day.
I don't have an epiphany every day.
I don't always feel like thinking about what happened every day.
Sometimes, when I get home from school, if the day has been particularly tiring or stressful, when my husband asks, 'How was your day?'
I simply say, 'It's over.'
And he understands that that means I don't want to talk about it. Sometimes it is easier to not think about everything that happened in a school day....because thinking about it only makes me stress out, or get frustrated about something that isn't going to change or be any different just because I talk about it.
If I don't have a little time alone at the end of each day to process, and do something quiet like read or drink some hot tea or go for a walk, I feel really stressed out. If I stay late at school, and we get home at around the same time, and I haven't had any time to myself, it is hard for me to relax. Without a little perspective, and a little time passing, it is hard to reflect and put any sense or meaning into the day-to-day things that happen.
This is my 'slice of life' blog.
