I was supposed to drive the bus for the first time this afternoon and I have to admit, I’ve been rather anxious about it.
Although I’ve driven bits and pieces of the route before, a lot of the surrounding landscape has changed, making parts of it unfamiliar. Most of the kids are unknown to me which makes figuring out who is or isn’t on the bus difficult. Some of my route, while in my neighborhood, has me dropping off new kids at unfamiliar houses. All in all? A little nerve wracking. Two weeks from now I’ll likely wonder what I had to be nervous about, but today it’s the first day of a new job.
That makes everyone nervous, right? However . . . while on Facebook early this morning, I saw status updates from two of my sisters-in-law. “No school today. -43 with windchill at the International Airport.”
Whaaaat?! Alright! Except . . . . it’s minus 43 Celsius at the International Airport!
Arghh! I’m knee deep in growing and planning for the Spring Plant Sale as well as a big Mother’s day sale. . . Will winter never end??!
I found something else on Facebook this morning and, if you’re as sick of winter as I am, you might enjoy this Spring Fever blog hop. It’s a lot more fun than looking out the window at the moment. . .
Here’s my contribution to the cause. . .
A few garden pictures to remind me that winter doesn’t last forever. . .
Now I’m off with map and student list in hand to drive out my new bus route in the truck . . .
I’ll be glad when it’s two weeks from now.
