|Day 16 of 31 at Two Writing Teachers!|
Fun is a running joke between my husband and I. In my family, you haven't had enough fun if you're not completely worn out at the end of the day. Daddy plans trips so that every minute is filled with fun activities, so we usually come home from vacations more tired than when we left. I inherited his trip-planning style, and Husband quickly discovered that my family's version of fun is, in his words, "exhausting".
Last night, we had a "feast" while watching the OSU basketball game with my parents (much more fun than it sounds!). After all that fun (and food), we got up early for our traditional St. Patrick's Day celebration: pancakes with green syrup, music, and a parade! Of course, all this was after a week of state testing at school and two weeks of spending my evenings supporting my students in our classroom challenge while writing my own slices. All this writing and commenting is also quite fun by my family's standards, because my eyelids are getting heavier and heavier each day!
Every fun day though, it's always worth it. Sleep will bring the rest I need, and the memories of all the fun we've had will stay with me forever.
