re-entry

Everyone was saying that going back after this break was surprisingly difficult.  Why so hard this year?  I don’t know. It is so dark outside.  It’s dark when we get up and dark when we get home.  A lot of the kids complained of not being able to go to sleep on Sunday night–out of sync with the school week, I guess.  And some people were getting on my nerves.  I was reminded of what Frederic, in The Pirates of Penzance, tells the pirates when he announces his intention to leave them and wage war against their kind: “Individually, I love you all with affection unspeakable, but collectively, I look upon you with a disgust that amounts to absolute detestation.”

    Hopefully, folks will find their rhythms again, and things will smooth out to the usual level of chaos. /hugs

  2. Hah — I’m so happy to now know that Pirates of Penzance quote, which seems so apt to how I feel at school sometimes! Hope that things get better as the week goes on.
