I know it isn't my imagination. I know that there were actual stretches of time where I came home from work by 4:30 on a regular basis. When exactly was that? It certainly hasn't happened this school year which is rapidly approaching three months old. I regularly don't get home until 6:30 - 7:30. That means 11-12 hour work days. November is supposed to be my chill month and I still feel like I can't get caught up. I'm tired.
Somewhere in my hazy memory I seem to remember barely making it to Thanksgiving vacation and sorely needing the rest. Maybe that is an every year thing that I forgot since I went to Panama last year (only a year?.... it seems like forever ago). It's a little soon to be this desperate for vacation, but that's how busy things have been. 15 days. I will definitely be crawling to the finish line by then.
