Back Home 2007

After spending one week in the company of two very sweet and loving children and playing with them, listening to their stories, reading to them, watching them, walking with them, feeding them, kissing them, brushing their hair, hugging them, looking for their missing things, and basically giving them a large portion of my attention, I can safely conclude that I do not regret my decision not to have children of my own. The quiet of our apartment is very welcome, and knowing that I can sit here in front of the computer and not worry whether or not someone is getting into trouble because I'm not watching is so very nice.

I also spent a week eating bready-cheesy-fatty-gravy-pastay-beery-winey-type foods that I don't normally eat. Of course, they tasted really good at the time, but it's a comfort to come home and eat more healthy meals again. I'm going to try and "detox" this week, concentrating on fruits, veggies, and lean meats like I'm supposed to.

It's also time to start counting down! Countdown to our trip and countdown to the end of school!!!! I can't wait for June. I'm so ready not to teach for a year.
