The first day of work—full day no less—after the school year ended (which made finishing grades the day before anti-climactic), she had lots of meetings and extra tasks to accomplish. So after work she went shopping on the way home. She stopped at her favorite local jeweler, and bought herself a pretty ring that sparkled in the sun.
Then she went home and made herself a pretty salad for dinner.
And she went to bed happy.
But the next day she struggled again. She sat through a three hour workshop (with only a 5 minute break) and then still had her classroom to clean. She skipped lunch to get it done and a good friend helped her. At 2:30 she turned in her grade book and keys and drove away.
And she went home happy.
