The Sun is Shining

It's hard to stay complaint-free when you wake up feeling sick.

When you've come back from a great night at the theatre with your 40 students
Students who were well-behaved
Well-dressed
Polite
Complimentary
Students who were complimented for their cleanliness by the bus driver
When you were able to enjoy the night out with two chaperons who are your friends
When you got to really dress up and enjoy yourself
And see your first live professional Shakespeare play
And wear real jewelry
And cry even though you knew what the ending was going to be
When you got to go to your favorite fast food restaurant with those same 40 students
And realize that you didn't have to clean up after them
because they did the clean up
When you slept like a baby for the first time in weeks
And got to sleep in until 9:30
And woke up with no puppy puddles to clean
or puppy piles to clean
And played your favorite video game for 2 hours
With your favorite person
While your kids entertained themselves quietly nearby
And the dog snored on her favorite chair
And you almost forget that you don't feel good when you think of all that
And the sun is shining
