If you can read this, well, you can read between the lines.

I could tell it had been a long, busy week at school. All the signs were there.

On Friday:
I pulled into the Jo to Go drive-thru at 6:45 a.m. and the barista knew what I wanted (16 oz. hazelnut, black, keep the change).
I pulled into the school parking lot and realized I'd gotten my coffee, but forgotten my ID (smart card for building entry) and room key.
I reached for my coffee and realized that my ID was sitting on the dashboard of the car from the night before.
More teachers were in jeans and casual, comfortable clothing than I've ever seen in this building. Even the principal was in a (stylish) workout suit.

Can you tell it was parent-teacher conference week? Busy, productive, and exhausting. I'm ready for a nap.
And I still have one more night of conferences to go.
Thank goodness for the long weekend coming up.
