Two weeks ago, our staff (myself included), were somewhat giddy and down-right exhausted. And with good reason: cold temperatures meant indoor recess after indoor recess and therefore limited opportunity for students to burn off that extra energy that comes with the holiday season. Yes, our students were also ready for a well-deserved break.
These last few weeks allowed for time with family and friends, time to watch hockey (international and local stars – yes, Donatella, that’s you!), escape with a good book, snowshoe through the freshly fallen snow in the mountains and simply indulge in an afternoon nap.
Tomorrow I will return to work feeling a little less delirious and a lot more rested. Some say we’re spoiled to have two weeks off at Christmas. Maybe we are.
I wouldn’t want it any other way.
