So school has started. And my bones ache, my feet ache, and my head aches. Every day when I get home from work.
I know I won’t get a lot of sympathy from the non-teacher crowd, but going back to work after a summer off is exhausting. After relaxing for the summer, you are thrust full force into the school year. The first weeks are typically pretty brutal. It usually levels out towards the end of September, but until then I look for quick meals that I can easily make when I’m tired.
