How do you spell relief? (Remember the old commercial? Maybe I'm showing my age!)
I spell it D-I-N-N-E-R with F-R-I-E-N-D-S.
I went out with two fellow teachers tonight. We were celebrating the end of our official state testing times, but in reality, we needed social time.
We started with venting about students and parents. Before you ask, we went to a restaurant far from school and asked for a corner table! (Can't be too careful!)
Our conversation morphed into our goals, dreams and our families, past and present. We laughed. We ranted. We smiled. We laughed some more.
I left the restaurant feeling lighter than I have in weeks. I recommend everyone take time this week to catch up with a friend or a few friends - you'll definitely feel better!
