I was on a posting roll, and now silence it back. I am working on building new routines. I have been away from the apartment for about seven months in total since January. Coming back spurred re-organization and new projects. I have also needed some time to re-acclimate and settle back in to Turkey. I am also spending lots of time just enjoying being with my husband.
Also work. School hasn’t started yet, but we have had a couple of weeks of teacher In-Service days, getting ready for the new semester. I am excited about the new school year, and without the stress from last year, believe I will be a better teacher, person and friend this year. I really did not have a lot of patience for anything last year, all my thoughts were at home.
I am working on developing balance this year. Balance for work, health and home. (More on health balance in another post.) I also have a few trips coming up, and am looking forward to those to. Technically the New Year is in January, but for teachers, it really starts in September!
