I had a very difficult time waking up this morning. I attempted to go back to sleep, but my husband kept nudging me. I ignored it, but after the third time I asked him what is the matter?! He said it is time to get up. I rolled over and said I am too tired, I need to sleep a little more. He got up and brought me coffee and I dragged myself out of bed. I felt like my eyes were half slits and my head was groggy. I managed to get dressed and ready and left about a half hour later than usual. As I walked the halls of my school I was wondering how in the world I would make it through the day. I felt exhausted. Other teachers shared with me they were feeling the same way. We looked out the window seeing the snow begin to fly wishing that maybe we would have a half day.
Miraculously within the second hour of the school day my head cleared, I felt a renewed energy. I blame my students for catching me in their net of enthusiasm. My enthusiasm continued when I left the school building in daylight.
