January has by far been the busiest and craziest month I’ve had in a long time.
The day before school started back, which was January 8, my students and I spent the entire day building a couple of decorative cakes and making different items for the fair.
That Friday Dawn Schulz came over to show us how to do baking class. It was fun but an all day event.
A week ago today we were at the ProStart competition in Frisco which is about two hours away from the school that I teach at. That was a bit of a fiasco for Friday but we won’t get into that today.
And now it’s 2:34 on Friday the 26th and I’m sitting at the mall instead of at work. The reason being is that the flu has been going around our school so much that they decided to close down and clean the place out.
I’m already preparing for The first week in May when we have two competitions back to back. One competition is Chopped North Texas, which I did last year and the other one is a barbecue competition in Burnet.
I am very excited about all of the great stuff that is happening at Rio Vista. However I cannot deny the fact that I am scared of March. The looming dread that a year ago I never would’ve dreamed existed still sits with me on a regular basis. I wonder if all this work is for nothing just like it was last year.
Yet even if I say I wonder if it was for nothing I know that last year was not for nothing. I had so many great kids and I still get to call my kids even to this day. They are mine they will always be mine whether I get to see them every day or not.
And that makes it all worth it.
I hope to get better at writing on this blog and I’ll write about whatever I don’t feel the need to have a certain type of law do with certain type of thing. I know my passion lies in teaching culinary, whether it’s to students or to you. I hope that I will be able to share my love a little more each day.
So this is me signing off saying “see you soon”.
