Last week, Linda did a fun post with letter writing. It's 11:09 PM, I still haven't posted for the day, and her letter has been a little tickle in the back of my brain. Hopefully Linda knows that I borrowed her idea because it just works for my purposes today. Thanks for allowing me to use your text as a mentor.
Last week you were so peacefully quiet; you didn't have a lot to say. Thanks for taking a break and allowing me to catch my breath and get some much needed restorative time. It was very appreciated!
However, as this week began, I couldn't help but notice how many warnings you were giving me. Did you miss me last week? Are you making up for lost time? It makes me happy that most of your dates allow me to gather with friends I haven't seen for awhile, but gosh, you sure are keeping me busy.
Monday, you made sure I got my nails done and then helped me remember to meet the two students who won my teacher time raffle from the GRE Meltdown for dinner. Tuesday, thanks for the reminders to go to the library to pick up my teacher collection (50 books!!) for our empathy study, and then head to the movies to meet my yaya friends for The Hunger Games. Wow! I am so thrilled you made sure I made it to the movie - it was incredible! Then, if it hadn't been for your help, I would have forgotten to go to the grocery store on the way home to get the food necessary for book club at my house on Wednesday. That's right - one of my book clubs is meeting at my house on Wednesday right after school. Without your warning, I might forget to leave with the kids tomorrow, so I can get home to do final touches on food and beverages. Oh my gosh! I forgot to do the laundry from vacation; maybe I need to add that to your list as well. I obviously can't remember it on my own. Then I noticed on Thursday, you're telling me I have yoga followed by my other book club. I might be a little late for the latter.
Whew! What would I do without you this week?!! Thanks so much for being there for me, but more importantly, thanks so much for your quiet last week.
Talk to you soon,
