The difference between having a good boss and a bad boss is the difference, at the end of the school year, between feeling worn out and burnt out.

The past few years, I have felt burnt out at this time. Absolutely finished. Murderous, even, when I saw children on the street. Or the principal.

Now, I feel worn out. Like my job was difficult, but now it's done. I think that's more appropriate.

We are getting ready to leave for a week--traveling to Iowa. When we get back, it will be a whirlwind of activity again. So I'm going to focus on doing a lot of sitting, and iced-tea drinking, and visiting, while watching the children run through the sprinkler.

p.s. the giraffe is the result of a google search for "children in sprinkler." ???

  1. I didn't know that giraffes sprinkled.

    However, Colorado was the place where I learned that giraffes have purple tongues.

    Enjoy Iowa!
