Hello, Work Life.
Me = Teacher
Summer Vacation = Days with Babes x Time with Hubs x (Directing a Show + Directing a Show) / New Sober Life
Last 3 Months = Heaven
Headed into work today for a morning meeting. Not too horrible a way to start the school year by any means. Then, I have tomorrow off, and then dive into workshop meetings on Wednesday.
Here’s the funny bit… I love my job. My career. My vocation. My calling. It truly is who I am. Through and through. I’m in love with it, and if it were possible, I would marry it and live a polygamous life. (Two Pee-Wee references in two days!) …. And even though I am in love with my job, I get nervous and excited for the school year to begin. Every. Year. Like stage fright.
This year I am more excited than I have ever been before, and do you know why? (I bet you do.*) …. Because I am one-hundred percent s.o.b.e.r. How cool is this year going to be? (And not be – I should be a little realistic for the tough times.) But still! How CoOl?! …. For example? It’s only 7:26 am and I am wide awake, with my brain functioning pretty quickly, and enjoying my cuppa joe …. wait for it …. with no hangover! Wa-oot!
So, yes. Big things are a-happenin’ here in this monster’s life. Big, wonderful, awesome things.
Day 69, tee-hee…… (I can never say that number without giggling.)
p.s. How lucky am I that Theatre is my job?!
