After 2 official days of rest last weekend when everyone left town, work started again on Monday. I could have used 2 more days. I am glad to be in a routine. But I am tired, and have a cold. I thought for sure I would not get sick this year because kids wash their hands so much in my classroom. And, of course, whatever I caught, I caught on vacation, and it hit on Monday. Figures. Could the weekend and no alarm clock arrive any faster?
