I take my morning walks 6 days a week around the track of a local elementary school - and it never ceases to amaze me the number of teachers who show up before we do (at 6 a.m.). One teacher in particular (who drives a big red noisy truck - but that's not the point) comes nearly every morning and is faithfully sitting at his desk grading papers.... or occasionally running around the halls preparing something or other.
Today? Today there is no school... and yet there were still three cars at the school. You guys amaze me... seriously - but please, for the sake of your families and making all the other teachers look like slackers... go home, sleep in... go hiking... but just ONE day - please relax and think about you. In the long run I think it will prevent you from having a nervous breakdown in class and cutting off all your hair with the blunt tipped scissors. (man THAT story will haunt me for the rest of my life)
and... thanks for all you do :)
