The weather is cooling, the leaves are changing colors, and I am NOT in school. I realized today that for the first time in years, I am not attending/working at a school. I honestly believe that I have been in school for the past 18 years of my life. How strange it is to not worry about homework or lesson plans or even getting up at the same time every day.
Josh tells me I deserve a break because for the past 3 years I was teaching early-morning seminary, which was a wonderful experience, but I don't know how I got the sleep I needed. Add student teaching on top of being pregnant, and this has been a long year. I can't believe I have been pregnant since January! And it is almost over. My doctor said I am dilated 2 centimeters, which means almost nothing in the long run, but I have seen the light at the end of the tunnel! We still have some things to move and finish (like her crib) but I am almost ready to be a parent. In a few years I will be getting little Allison ready for school and then fall will once again mean something. For now I am enjoying sleeping in and not following a regular schedule, for the first time in my life.
