Part of me thinks this next week will never end and part of me doesn’t want it to. All teachers know the last week is nuts, it’s part of the job. But incidents last week at school caused a moral crash, many hard feeling and more stress than anyone needs. We still have testing to get though. And I can’t get over this cold.
I miss being here – this is my relaxation and stress relief, but there is little time. Mollie’s home and I love that! But having boxes, crates, and laundry baskets filling the whole house as she transitions from college to camp doesn’t make it more relaxing. We sometime end up storing the over flow in LJ’s room. But I need to get in there and clean because LJ and Collin are coming home! They will be here Wednesday for a wedding they will both be in next Sunday. I love seeing my boys, but this isn’t the best time for a nice quiet visit.
I know the school year will end! The kids are done this Friday. Finally time to stop and enjoy my own children, except Mollie will be leaving Saturday and LJ and Colin fly out Monday. I’ll finally have time and their gone. All is not lost, I’ve gotten to spend some quality time with Mollie and the boys are always in and out when they’re here anyway.
As you can see blogging time is taking a back seat these days, as it should, but I still miss you all. A couple of time in the last few weeks I’ve had some time to write and I wanted to get a story done for Cassie. But when I had the time she wasn’t ready to tell it. I wanted/needed to get it done and I started writing. I swear it was as if Cassie sat down crossed her arms, smiled at me and said, “Fine, write it yourself.”
I proceeded to write two pages that could have been written by an illiterate six year old! I could hear Cassie in my head laughing at me. Anyway it taught me I can’t do a darn thing there unless she’s ready. So of course now she is ready and I don’t have time to type it up for her. And you all thought I was just a little crazy!
Anyway I squeezed out a moment here to tell you I’m alive and well and hoping to get back to reading, writing, and commenting once the school year ends. Don’t forget me!
