I'm proud that the assembly, halftime show and dance seemed to be a success. However, the Sunday following the dance, I knew that I needed to make the decision to resign from Student Government.
I hate quitting things. So much so that I have begun to realize my tendency to avoid taking risks or just trying new things because I'm fearful that I will quit. In any case, I'm grateful that my principal understood my need to pull back and I can only hope that my students will be as forgiving and supportive.
That said, I'm also a little bit proud of myself. There was a time when I would have forged on at the expense of my well being and my time with my family. Learning curves abound. I'm happy to say, too, that in the shuffle of the chaos that was October, I did manage to land a home for my series, Making Out, and generate a couple of upcoming articles. I've included a link to my series which now appears weekly on Smartymommies.com, here.
I'm off to catch up on my grading, lesson planning and to brainstorm how I will celebrate my upcoming 20th anniversary with my husband. Maybe we will try a cooking class or a hiking group together or perhaps we'll brave dance lessons-we did learn some new moves from students at this year's Fall Ball.
