The TMEA year begins tomorrow. Well, it's already begun, but the first day of school is tomorrow. I am very excited. It's my favorite day of the year - more than my birthday. When a Texas public schoolhouse fills up with children, I feel most complete in body, mind, and soul. I don't suppose that my worry level is real high right now because I made gumbo tonight. Cooking - it's my hobby, my craft, my science lab, my math problem...it is cheap therapy. My gumbo is a masterpiece.
