So this is what "not tired" feels like. I went for a walk yesterday and then got 8 hours of sleep last night. When I woke up I was functional. And I didn't need to fall asleep with my daughter when she took a nap.
In fact, I would not have started weeping in despair if she had missed her nap yesterday. Take that, horrible lethargy! Ha.
This day was full of celebrations. It was the final class party for the beginning orchestra at my son's school. I have been volunteering with the group all year and the teacher is moving to CA this summer so this was her farewell to the kids. We gave her a quilt with the names of all her students all around the border. (If you can see close-up the names are all in Chinese-- they are at a Mandarin immersion school.)
Then my students (adult ELL) had a potluck picnic and gave me a gift card as a thank you. As I was driving around with a wicked headache thinking of the million things that I had to do, I took half an hour off and got a massage with my gift card. Thank you, students.
