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

(Finally) Packing the Suitcase Away

There are many things I haven't kept up with this summer...and blogging is apparently one of them. As school starts, who knows if I'll be able to keep up - I hope I will. I'll have a brand new desk to keep my computer on in our living/dining room here at the apartment (photos to come once I pick it up from the store and assemble it), so there will really be no excuses - I'll finally have real work space! :)

Enough about all that, though...

I must say, I believe I lived the following quote this summer:

- because that's just about what happened. (I haven't used my own closet since the middle of June!)

But it was totally worth it.

However, things are finally settling down - back in Chicago to get ready to start the school year. (No more "big" trips till October - phew!) The suitcase is stored under my bed, and clothes are hanging in the closet as I try to get all the wrinkles out.

I'm glad to be home, yes, but I wouldn't trade this past summer for the world. As the final days of summer wind down, it's time to wind up for school mode. Let's go!
