Important Words

It's the end of the fourth day of my first week back to work at school and I've already become reacquainted with the importance of a few words/phrases/things:
  • Friday
  • weekend
  • upload complete
  • successful
  • time
  • end of the day
  • end of the week
  • elevator (No, I haven't taken it instead of the stairs but the temptation level is incredible)
  • nap
  • a box of tissues
  • comfortable shoes
  • a working clock (or a watch)
  • patience
  • a hair tie
  • a bed time
  • good friends
  • sense of humor
  • smiling
  • pencil sharpeners
  • pens with ink
  • paper clips
Most importantly of all, I was quickly reminded of how much I have missed all these wonderful people at the school. I don't think there's any other school that has a faculty/staff quite like the one we have. And I do realize how truly blessed I am to be a part of this encouraging/supportive/loving/caring/funnyashell family of educators!

No wonder the lovelies turned out so great!


  1. How nice!!! I love all of your words. I am so glad you have had such a nice week back.

  2. So awesome that you went back to school! Glad it's feeling good. :)

  3. Kim- Thanks! I'm glad too. Now, if I can just figure out how to not be exhausted every day...LOL

    Jessica- Thanks! It really is good. And exhausting. :)

  4. I must have missed that you worked at a school? I guess I thought you didn't have a job outside the home?
    Oh,well, I am glad you enjoyed your first week and I bet it is tiring and you are looking forward to the weekend but it sounds like you are enjoying it too :)

  5. Oh you are so lucky! I guess you've been in jobs where these sort of phrases aren't used, sadly what's where I am now.

  6. Lucy- I was a SAHM the whole time the lovelies were growing up and then took a job as an interventionist at their elementary school. Funding ran out after a few years but they just offered me this job last week! I'm so glad to be out of the empty house for a change!

  7. Me- I wouldn't have been so quick to take the job had it not been at this particular school!

  8. I always said the two most important qualities for being a good teacher are be flexible and have a good sense of humor! Enjoy - and love to my buddies at Mamie P.

  9. We are so lucky to have you back on our team. Getting back into the routine is always a challenge, but as we know you are up for it!! Welcome back

  10. Suzanne- How are things out in CA?! Are you tired of it now and ready to come back home? LOL Those are definitely important qualities--both of which you possessed. Along with a whole lot more! You are missed by all!

    Judy- I love it and am so glad to be back! Just being there with all of y'all make my days worth the effort!

  11. I am so glad you are happy and loving your job. It makes life so much better when you enjoy what you're doing.
    Take care Pam. Blessings my friend.

  12. Ah yes I remember those days, especially remembering when it's Friday. Even hump day had meaning when I was working, especially if I wasn't happy in my job at the time.

  13. For my list I'd have to add staples/stapler, red pen, whiteboard markers, and stickers :)

  14. You see what I miss when I don't visit? You are teaching again! Yay you!

    School is a whole other world, isn't it?

  15. Sounds like you are having a wonderful time, Pam! So glad to hear it. :-) Have a great weekend.

  16. So glad you are enjoying being back.. :-) as soon as you get back into the swing of things.. your energy will pick up! :-) Hopw you have a fantastic weekend!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! It makes me feel connected to everyone even though we may live far apart! Have a wonderful day!
