Life School Counselor Work

It’s been fun…..

OMG it’s time to go back to school tomorrow.

I’m not ready.

I’m so not ready.

Summer has been great. It was relaxing, enjoyable, and rejuvenating.

Still doesn’t necessarily mean I’m ready to go back though.

I’ve enjoyed not really having a schedule to follow and to be able to go places when I choose. This week I already have meetings and schedules and things that I need to take care of. I have a school to-do list about 20 bullet points long already. And given how many meetings we have before school starts some of my list isn’t likely to get done.

This is the sad song of all educators, I know.

Don’t get me wrong, like I’ve said I love my job and once I get back into my schedule I will be totally okay.

I’m not just back in it yet. So it’ll take a couple weeks to get back in the school groove.

It also likely means a regular blogging schedule will recommence. I got super lazy this summer. At the end of the day I’m okay with that. Sometimes you just need some time to relax and lay back so that you can come back ready to take on a lot again. And…I’m getting there.

This summer did make me realize something though. I spent probably….90% of the summer with Devon. I’m not tired of him yet.


But I’m someone that normally has issues being around the same person a lot. Even with my roommates in college; most of them I was friends with so I lived with them and spent a lot of time with them. There usually came the point where I would think, okay I like you but I’m gonna go elsewhere for awhile because I need a break.

Even in part relationships I’ve been the same way.

I would be more than fine to keep hanging out with Devon like I have been.

I even asked him if he was tired of me yet. He’s like, “nah, I’m good”.

So neither of us are tired of the other.

I might actually miss him when I go back to work.

That sounds sappy. Sappy happens sometimes.

But we are both people that usually needs a break after being around people for a long time but we are both still good here. There is no feeling like one is smothering the other or that we are attached at the hip or anything. It was a good little test for us. He didn’t annoy the crap outta me. Total win.

Tonight were doing a serenade to summer dinner. Nothing super fancy but nice since we both get the feeling that cooking isn’t going to be in the fore front this coming week. Were going to have a nice roasted chicken with basil rice and some roasted veggies. All delicious but not ridiculously labor intensive either since both of is are lapping up the last few hours of peace that we have.

Back to life tomorrow.

Summer you’ve been great. See ya again in 9-10 months.
