Around mid-May, I always get a bit anxious.
School is winding down and I always see what I didn’t get to, trying desperately to make sure that my students have been exposed to knowledge that I believe they need. Students are checked out. I feel unfulfilled. My own children are feeling done with school and bring that anger/fear/anxiousness back home. My husband is winding up his school year and is ready for us to go on vacation, despite the fact that, for me, there is another month to go.
Everybody is in a nasty mood.
And the weather doesn’t help.
So much rain.
And if I hear any more about how that will bring spring flowers, I don’t know what drastic measure I would threaten to take.
This time of year is just awful.
I tend to neglect what I should be doing because of my sour mood. But there comes a time when you have to catch up. So that’s what I’m going to do now. The next few posts, which will come in rapid succession, will show the past month in our time with Flynn artist Susan Palmer.
So hang tight. We’re in for a flurry of posts!
