I didn't lay down Sunday night (Monday) until 4:00am and got back up at 6:00. I was surprised at how well I felt with only 2 hrs of sleep, but I did feel pretty good and was ready to tackle the day. I took Sadie to school and went in for a little bit to talk to the teacher I work with only to find out that there had been issues at school that I didn't expect. The day went from "Yes, I can do this!" to "I just want to go home." I couldn't hang around so I had to leave unfinished business and head to the doctor for a follow up to a surgery (not serious and not the kind that does wonders for your body haha) I had last month. I headed in to the big city and traffic was horrible. I even had to call and tell them I was gonna be a few minutes late because I couldn't find a parking place. Finally, I found one and then walked a good half mile to the doctor's office only to be told that MY APPOINTMENT WASN'T UNTIL 3:30. I could have puked since it was only 9:30. So, I walked back to my car (now I have walked a mile) and headed back to school. I made it back by lunch but at that point I not only wanted to go home but I really wanted my mommy. LOL! Kidding! I did just want to go home and call it a day, but since I spent Friday in Nashville (Hall & Oates concert), I didn't want to miss out on being able to teach my kids. The day did get so much better, but I was exhausted. The feeling of thinking I could tackle the day left me not too long after I had it. Oh, one more goodie. While I was driving back to school, I got a call saying that I had missed Gavin's dentist appointment. Jeez! Mother of the year here! At that moment I became drained. Who has time to be exhausted during this time of year though. Not me!!! I had my reinforcement coming to help me work soon after school and I couldn't waist that opportunity. Within two days we cut out 38 sets of names for hoodies. Yep...knocked out lots of orders and it felt good! The next week is gonna be crazy but atlleast I now feel like it is doable. I guess you could say that I do see the light at the end of the tunnel...barely! Tuesday...big improvement although I did have to go to the dentist after school. Laying in the chair listening to soothing Christmas music wasn't so bad. The day was good but then it stepped on up a notch. I got home and my husband had supper ready. Awwwww!!!! It was delicious!!!! Now, I can hardly hold my head up. This gal is shutting down real soon tonight. I had big hopes of getting some things accomplished but it's just not gonna happen tonight. I spent every ounce of energy I had making ornaments with my kids after supper. We used fake snow and glitter in the kitchen with a 5 year old and 7 year old. Need I say more?
Monday...bad, Tuesday...much better, Wednesday is gonna be great! (fingers crossed because I am taking the glitter and fake snow to make ornaments with my class tomorrow).
Wow...I feel so much better now and I hope by making ornaments with my kids tonight that it cancels out the fact that I missed a dentist appointment for Gavin :)
