Wait for it…

I know, I know, I know.

I haven’t been on here in forever.

The school year kicked into high gear and I basically fell off the face of the earth.

Sorry about that, peeps.

Between correcting assignments, grading papers, getting my continuing education credits in, playing referee between bickering students, settling playground kerfuffles, retraining kiddos how to sit still and learn, addressing parent questions and concerns, planning lessons, working on accreditation requirements, trying to teach non-Catholics about all things Catholic, pulling art projects from Pinterest, planning field trips, setting up experiments, pushing students to grow and stretch and THINK, printing more worksheets than should even be legal, and occasionally getting some groceries and cleaning up my own place? There hasn’t been much time for anything else.

Plus… it doesn’t help when I feel like I have nothing to say. Even though I have plenty to say… but my mind is so befuddled by everything going on, that it’s difficult to focus on one thing for any specific length of time.

Also… I don’t think it’s helped that I’ve felt… frustrated… irritated… annoyed… confused… and somewhat flabbergasted by how things have changed in my work and church life. I suddenly find myself thinking more like a teacher and less like a dutiful, obedient parishioner. I find myself seemingly pigeon-holed into activities and duties I didn’t ask for nor show any interest or talent in. And I just want to buck the system and go rogue. Maybe it’s human nature. Or maybe it’s just that time of the month.

But once the dust settles, you can bet your bippy I’ll be back on here.

You just wait.
