Lacking

Do you ever get so busy and yet having nothing to say about what's keeping you going at such a hectic pace?
That's how I feel this week.
I'm crazy busy but I've got nothing {interesting} to share with you.

The end of the school year has arrived.
I only have 17more days of school. It's bittersweet ~ I'm looking forward to slower paced days, visiting family, afternoons on the beach, lunch dates with friends, and dinners on the patio. However, I'm really going to miss those sweet smiles, the *a ha* moments when the lesson clicks, the excited greetings each morning, and sharing my day with the children.

Hope you're all having a great week!

Yes!! I absolutely know what you are talking about. I think I walk in circles all day some days.
The weekend is coming.....take a break and do absolutely nothing...without guilt.

Your flowers are beautiful and yes, I can completely relate. Busy, but nothing seems very important or interesting. The end of the school year is crazy for teachers and parents. I'll bet you are a great teacher.

The end of the school year is always a blur. Thankfully you'll get to enjoy more "a-ha" moments next year too! How is your son doing? I don't remember reading an update lately after all of his winter sickness.

Hi Jo!! How are you sweet friend? Busy little bee it seems! No worries, I totally understand the feeling. Relax, enjoy and know we're here for you! The hydrangea from your garden are stunning, I wish I could grow them!! xox

I totally understand what you mean. The end of the school year can be so hectic and then your mind kind of goes forward to the dog days of summer. Kind of fun though, isn't it? :) xoxo

Hi Jo,

So often I feel like this too.
How wonderful that you will soon be on holiday and to be able to relax.

Enjoy the rest of the week.

I with you on the crazy-busy times. May is tends to be very hectic. I'm looking forward to days with less activities, a little slower paced (of course, I say this knowing a home move is looming. Oh, well!)

Jo, you are such a lovely lady and such an inspiration to me! The way you speak about your students just makes me smile. I hope to be just like you when I have students of my own. Your students are so very lucky to have such a lovely teacher!! I hope you have a wonderful weekend ~ Tina xx

I am soooo with you! I have not read a blog in almost a week. The end of school can be so hectic. We have only 8 more days, yippee! (But then we start in mid August.)

BTW... love the hydrangea!

paige said...

Sue said...

I hope that your summer vacation will bring you some R & R. It should be nice for you to enjoy a little bit slower a pace for a few short months. Come next year, those aha moments will be back once again to prove to you that you are helping someone learn....
hugs, Sue

ALL the time. I hate when my mom calls and asks what I've been doing and I can't think of anything.. but I feel like I'm moving 100 miles an hour.

Beautiful flowers!

Just add an "s" and you've got slacking, which is what I've been doing in terms of blogging.

Nice to catch up on you, and I hope you have a fabulous Memorial Day!!
