Happy Friday chickadees and...Happy May!

I am beyond pleased that May is finally here. The end of the school year is in sight and (just 6 more weeks to go) and summer can't come soon enough!

I hit a low in blogging during April, only posting 4 times. I have constantly been inspired to post and have a growing list of ideas, but honestly, I just haven't had it in me.

Allergies are majorly kicking my butt this spring, and because of them, I can't remember the last time I had a good night's sleep. I feel like I've been living life in an exhausted fog.

Additionally, as the school year comes closer to an end, big life decisions are weighing heavily on me. I've shared my teaching frustrations on the blog and after 3 years, I'm leaning more and more toward a career switch each day. I have a passion for kids and teaching, however, that passion is squashed by the state of education and teaching as a profession today (at least where I am). Last year, I was questioning things big time, but still felt a strong pull to teaching. These days, all of my gripes about teaching seem to overshadow that pull. I'm at a point where the thought of exploring new (and totally different) options is exciting, but also really scary. Stay tuned...

All that being said, I've been physically and emotionally exhausted. When I've made it home these last several weeks, I've just wanted to unplug and zone out. I'm hoping, however, that May, and all its springtime glory, will reenergize me and help me to find my blogging groove again.

Thanks for sticking by me and still reading despite my absence.

Have a great weekend!
