life without work

Despite hundreds of errands and many little projects, I feel like I'm spinning my wheels and not getting traction when I'm not working. It is good to know that this is just a vacation, and I will be back contributing to society soon. On the flip side, the beauty of year-round school is getting a break when you need it.

For the next few weeks, I'm soaking up the family time and going through a little self-discovery, too. Today I learned that I can no longer touch my toes.

Are you on year-round or just spring break? Of course I guess the answer to both questions could be yes.

How do you like year round? I love the eight weeks of summer to plan for new classes the following year.

Part of the cool part of being a teacher is every day having the chance to change the world. Being way makes me realize how much I love my job.

well if you ever need someone to touch your toes for you, let me know.

sit down.
bend your knee & rest your ankle on the other knee.
Your toes should be in reach.

alternatively, attach an inflated rubber glove to a stick & create an arm extension. These are also useful for cuddling very fat people and smacking children with lice.

Toe touching is not lost forever, just do stretches each morning.

It's not just flexibility; there's a tummy in my way. ;)

Ahhh, the dreaded belly. I have a very vivid memory from the hospital after my first child was born. I was in the bathroom taking my first post-partum shower and I needed to pick up something from the floor. I squatted down like I had been doing with the big belly, and suddenly I realized I could see and touch my toes! Then I bent over normally and it felt very strange. I chuckled to myself the next few times I bent over -- nobody else could relate!

Take care -- cute pix!
