1. Awesome was a small accomplishment first thing in the morning sending an email that I’ve been hesitating to send for quite awhile now because I was nervous about the outcome.
2. Awesome was another blizzard-induced pedagogical day with which I managed to laminate some things that needed to be laminated, prepare some activities for the next few days and do some major storage room and classroom organization.
3. Awesome was a long phone conversation with Anthony, my brother from another mother.
4. Awesome was receiving a disappointing response to the above-mentioned email with optimism and grace – as a sign of something better to come.
