Friday Five List: First Week Back At Work Edition

This was my first proper week back at work, after being away for two and a half years.  Much has stayed the same, but a few things have changed!

1- I am no longer one of the "young ones".  Marriage moved me to the edge of that category, but having a baby solidified it.  Younger teachers are now coming to me for advice, rather than the other way around.  This is both exciting and terrifying!

2- Before I went on leave, a few teachers would bring their own laptops to work.  When I arrived this week, almost everyone had one out in the workroom.

3- I can no longer wear heels of any height all day, every day.  I now have "sensible shoes" that probably add another 10 years to my age, but I don't care because they're comfortable.

4- I also can no longer survive on coffee and air if I forget my lunch at home.  I actually drove home one day this week to pick up my forgotten lunch.

5- I look forward to the weekends for different reasons now.  Gone are the the Friday and Saturday nights at the club.  They've been replaced by sidewalk chalk on the driveway and a walk to the park. 

Have a great weekend.  I'll be posting tomorrow and putting up the Menu Plan on Sunday!
