Oh joy and happiness, I had the energy to pick up three rooms of the house, down to bare wood (I can see the floor!) this morning. That means that the weekend will be that much less cluttered. My mind is needing that kind of cleaning out, and I'm starting to do it by processing my whole life in education and trying to figure out how I feel about the schooling that I have received and poured my life into. And I'm trying to be detached enough from my experiences to look and see what really makes sense for good learning to occur so I can make a good and appropriate decision about what kind of school my kids need to be at. I realize that my decision will affect the course of my own life to a huge degree, as I will have to buy into it as much as my kids do. My reflecting and evaluating and researching process still feels very internal, and I don't have it figured out enough to be very coherent or to write an 'expository paragraph' about it. But it's very interesting to me to be in this process- this is the kind of thing that I love to do- reevaluate and poke and prod at experiences to see what they were all about and discover new insights. The end result is exciting too because everything is back in place, though usually in a different place, and then it leads to action, which is a releif after all that thinking.
