hello! i hope your day was grand in one way or another. i spent a day here at moss cottage piddling around. reading travel books, blog hopping, watching Bread & Tulips, reading, prepping my travel journal for. travel.
that sort of thing. very un-holiday like, but perfect for me. a super excited soon to be 50 year old woman embarking down my very own bulldozed path of change.
a leave of absence i requested from my school district was approved and starting on december 14 i'll be out of the classroom until august of 2013. it was a long and difficult decision process for me. there were other routes i could have persued, but i chose an unpaid leave. this is both frightening and liberating. i'm going off the grid for 8 months. it's a risk i am willing to accept for an insane situation that i am unwilling to accept.
i'll miss many of the sweet children in my class, but i know they will be well cared for by my replacement. it will take them a couple of weeks to adjust, but after that they will be just fine.
and so will i. so will i.
