You Get What You Need

Today was certainly an unexpected day!  It started when the Mr. surprised me by coming home early this morning, so I wouldn’t have to rush to get Holden to daycare before going in for an inservice day at school.  This means that I left the house WITHOUT looking slightly disheveled and like a rushing madwoman.  A very nice surprise indeed.  My day was even better when I got to enjoy lunch outside of the school walls at Chesapeake Pizza.  I hadn’t been here to eat before, but I liked the mini pizza that I got.  The only issue with this place is that they don’t take cards…no debit or credit.  What in the world.  Fortunately, I remembered hearing this and got some cash back at good old Wal-Mart.  Twenty bucks cash back on a thing of Tic Tacs.  Then, I get back to school and decide to head down to the Teacher of the Year reception.  I contemplated not going just because I felt like I got absolutely nothing on my “to do” list done today.  Imagine my surprise when the Teacher of the Year was announced, and it was me!  I was shocked to say the least.  When Holden and the Mr. walked in, I got a little cry cry.  My school is much more a family than just random people who show up each day and suffer through the work day with.  They are truly the funniest, supportive, and most hard working people I know.  I’ve contemplated trying to find a teaching position closer to home (my commute is about 30 to 40 minutes with traffic issues), but I always come back to the people I work with.  I just don’t want to leave them!  They are worth the drive.  It means so much to me that my peers feel like I’m doing a good job.

Even though life doesn’t always give you what you want…it seems to me that I tend to get what I need usually when I need it.  Perhaps not on my time table…I needed a pick-me-up, some positivity, then presto!  There it was in the form of a super sweet cake, a little boy’s “congratulations mommy!,” a bouquet of flowers, and kind hugs and words from co-workers.
