Comments: SO TIRED

Sarah

From what I understand, your experience is typical. My mom is a teacher (ppcd - pre-K special ed) and her routine is that when she gets home from school, she collapses on the couch and sleeps.

As far as the general stress of the job, there's a reason why they say a very large portion of teachers leave the profession within five years.

Very typical. Welcome to the profession. :) The only thing that keeps us in it are the side benefits--being there for kids and watching them grow (both of which take a while to appear)

Hang in there in the meantime. Subbing is the worst!

Hubby's out of Iraq? Yeah for both of you!!!

Sarah - I'm so glad (and relieved) to read that your LT is on the way back home to you. I've been checking every day hoping to see this good news. I trust that he will soon be back with you, enjoying a delicious German heffe (among other things). I also hope that you'll get to go on the cruise that you planned. You certainly deserve it. - Bob

So glad to hear your husband is out of Iraq! :)

I have to laugh at myself right now, because I am reading this and so wishing that I was in your shoes right now (not subbing, but that your husband is close to coming home)...ignoring the fact that we are on like Day 10 now...lol. The anticipation must be incredible. I can't wait to hear about when he comes back!
