Only 1 week, 3 days left until I'm working full-time. I've been "in the office" a lot, but I still have the flexibility to not be there every second... it's hit me that this is going to be a huge test of will. We've been preparing for it and everyone is trying to do their part, but this is BIG.
I'm very excited and I can do the job, but still in the back of my mind I wonder if I'm doing what's best... the house is a little messy, the kids are a little tired, my patience is a little less, but all in all my goal was to do this to gain exposure to continued teaching at the college level...... and I have accomplished that. I'm booked with classes through next Spring and I am very grateful.
So, if you stop by my desk is a mess, the dogs are happy to have an extra pat, the kids are busy doing homework, Joe is cooking and I'm surviving!
