First Day Jitters

Today is the 1st day of school (homeschool). I feel more nervous than a... well... a schoolgirl. What if my nieces hate me? What if I fail? What if they fail? What if I'm a "mean teacher"? What if they learn nothing? What if my house catches fire? What if there's a major earthquake? What if my sister-in-law thinks I'm doing a terrible job and fires me and I have to go sell shoes?

Seeing as how it's 2nd and 4th grade and I have delightful nieces and a wonderful sister-in-law... and a spinkler system and we're not over a major fault line... I kinda doubt any of that will happen.

Except maybe the "mean teacher" part.

Quit reading this and go do something useful with your time. Like, checking out the upcoming changes in the new translation of the Roman Missal. No more auto-pilot Mass responses, people! We're actually gonna have to think about this stuff!

aw, you'll do great! :3

also, apparently i already say the "new" apostles' creed. i'm guessing it's reverting back to an older translation though, just knowing the parish i grew up in. we learned the old-school version of the act of contrition too.
