One of those days...

Today was one of those days...

One of those days that feels stacked,
One thing on top of the other,
A few minutes here
and there to get ready
for the rest of a stacked week.

One of those days,
Where you're never quite present,
because you're thinking about what
is coming up next.
And trying to remember if you're ready.

One of those days,
Where you're leaving work
At seven pm
Loaded down,
One bag for PD tomorrow,
One for the PD on Friday,
One for curriculum writing on Saturday.

One of those days,
Where the overwhelm
Get the best of you.
And you forget for a second
How much you love what you do.

One of those days,
Where a small thing,
Melts away the overwhelm
And reminds you why
You do what you do.

An email from a teacher that I just met in a PD I'm doing at work.  I needed to hear this today.

  1. I'm so glad that she took the time to send you that - it makes all the difference, doesn't it? Enjoy your Sunday, it sounds like that might be your first chance to rest a bit!
