I have come to fall in love with teaching in Catholic schools. What are YOU in love with?...

"Nothing is more practical than finding God, that is, than falling in love in a quite absolute, final way. What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination, will affect everything. It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning, what you will do with your evenings, how you will spend your weekends, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude. Fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything." - Pedro Arrupe

Not Much

Not much to say tonight - pretty tired after last night's escapades to see Gypsy at the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. (On the town on a Wednesday night - gasp!) What a wonderful treat that was...but it did mean that sleep was significantly less than normal. And that showed today - while I tried to make up for it by being extra energetic, I pretty much wanted to do nothing (exercise-wise) when I got home this afternoon. However, I did get laundry, packing, and lesson-planning done. (Woot!)

Looking forward to getting some much needed R & R this weekend (as well as some family visiting) - no school for us on Monday. It's much needed in the midst of this fast-moving month. (Quite frankly, it's hard to believe February is halfway over - and it just keeps going by faster. We are exactly 3 weeks away from Confirmation, and that is itself an intimidating thought. I sure hope these kids are ready...)

And so, while nothing of substance truly exists in this blog, this is where I leave you tonight. Yes it's early, and, yes, I am going to miss the figure skating competition right now, but sleep is much needed.

In the words of Kristoff (in "Frozen"), "Good night. Don't let the frostbite bite."

P.S. Totally unrelated, but I came across a Christian website full of prayer station ideas while browsing around Pinterest earlier. Just thought I'd share - seems like some solid ideas...
