Y'all - this is how I've felt for the last week...
.... I always get so pumped up for going back to school and starting last week I literally felt like it was one terrible horrible no good very bad thing after the next. Was it anything major??? No.... not in the grand scheme of things. A few viruses knocked me on my butt hardcore, I didn't do all the "house things" that I wanted to over the weekend because I was still recuperating and then having no AC in my classroom the past two days kind of put me over the edge. I "snapped" at people more than I should, pouted more than I'm proud of and took out some of my frustration on my sweet hubby (sorry, Dave!!!).
A good cry last night (am I the only one who does that???) before some snuggles with my boys and some serious "let go, let God" quiet time yesterday morning and I was ready to face the day. And it was a great one. :)
I'm FINALLY feeling better, FINALLY have an appetite after a week of being pretty much anemic and blah, FINALLY have AC in my classroom and FINALLY feel somewhat caught up after missing Friday of work. I still have mounds of laundry to fold, I haven't cooked dinner since Saturday night and I'm pretty sure that there are at least 50 emails that I haven't responded to since the weekend (SORRY!), but for my own mental health we decided to surprise the kiddos and head to the pool last night for dinner.
We could have stayed home and I could have cleaned up the 1000 piece Scooby Doo puzzle that's all over my kitchen table - but I would have missed this raggedy hair, goggle face :)
GG LOVES the water, but you have to watch her so carefully (just like Dave - hahaha!) because she wants to put her face in CONSTANTLY!!!
A water gun fight, about 400 jumps off the diving board and a swimming race later - it was dinner time.
It hasn't been the perfect week, but last night was perfect! I am so so so beyond grateful for some sweet time with my little family and am NOT planning on moving to Australia any time soon :)
