Holy jeepers! Blog isn't even 3 weeks old and I'm slacking! The past two days have been rough and pretty busy. It was the end of the semester for my kiddos which is always stressful kind of...but--as many of you know--I also resigned from my position as the 5th grade teacher. It was a tough decision to make, but you have to do what's right for you, right? All that being said, I'm in the job market. Eek. I've been spending today packing up my classroom and letting myself be a little ecstatic sad. I decided to take a little break and post when I realized...I FORGOT TO POST FOR THANKFUL WEDNESDAY!! Geeze. I suck. So here it goes, Thankful Wednesday (Thursday).
Today (and everyday), I am thankful to have such amazeballs friends. My friends are seriously incredible. Old, new, fuzzy, manic. They're all great. I am super blessed to have friends that not only tolerate me and my sometimes questionable behavior, but encourage me to be me. I am fortunate that they never get tired of hearing my stories about how I beat myself up at CrossFit and that they always have my back in a fight. Even when I'm wrong. And I can be all types of wrong when I've been drinking. I am lucky to have people of all types in my life who have decided to keep themselves there. In a world where social media (even things like this blog) can diminish personal relationships between people, my friends and I have managed to keep our bonds close-knit and tight. I am lucky that these people share my love of grammar, share the same quirky humor, and complete each other where another fails. Thanks, friends, for being there for every hurricane, break up, bad haircut, bad fashion choice, questionable decision, and bratty attitude. I wouldn't be me without you.
