We finally closed on our house Friday. I'm living in an apartment until the end of the school year. My cousin is living with me so I have a roomie. We actually have furniture in the apartment. It sure beats sleeping on the floor in an empty house.
The school year - that's the only thing left to do it. May 31st feels like it is right around the corner and yet a lifetime away all at the same time.
I'm ready to live with my husband again. We've been living in separate places for 3.5 months & quite frankly I'm over it.
I'm ready to start work at QES. I'm ready to meet my new coworkers & see my new classroom.
I'm not ready to say goodbye to my friends at HG. The woman teaching next door has become my best friend. We do everything together. When we wake up sick, we can email each other our lesson plans & know everything will be okay. She's my soundboard for ideas, my encourager, & my field trip partner. She's my friend. I don't know how I will survive a school day without her, let alone a school year. I pretty much start sobbing whenever I think about it.
I could spend hours writing about the people of HG. They've become my family over the past six years. God has blessed me immensely by allowing me to work for my principal. She's pretty much the perfect boss. She's also a friend.
I'm already planning trips back to visit.
Before I say goodbye though, my field trip partner and I are taking a group of students to California. We leave in less than two weeks. I am our official group photographer & videographer. I'm going to do some interviews for the video & one of the questions I'm going to task is who they would like to see in LA. I thought I was pretty set in my answer. I want to see Adam Levine. But every time someone tells their answer, I start changing my mind. When I asked the husband, he said Jennifer Anniston. HA! I would be completely stoked if I saw anyone from the cast of Friends. Someone else said Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory. That would be pretty cool. I'm pretty sure our students (and me) will be excited to see anyone famous.
So...Who would you want to see?
niaw: listen up.
