I knew when I decided to commit to teacher training that my life was going to get even busier than it was before. I can honestly say that I have felt relatively in control of everything and still able to maintain my normal routine through the past two and a half months of training. So why is it that now that I’m in the final stretch things are starting to fall apart a bit?
I am tired. My house needs serious attention. Sullie needs a bath. I haven’t been home (and awake) for longer than two hour in four days. I have two letters that I wrote a week ago and still haven’t mailed because I haven’t made it to the post office yet.
That’s a lot of whining, huh? I just want you all to know that I am not superwoman. I am definitely at capacity and in serious need of a break. But despite the craziness and utter exhaustion, I am still filled with nothing but joy and gratitude for the place where I am in my life right now.
It just so happens that my blog is being moved to a new server late tomorrow evening (Tuesday) so I’m going to take tomorrow off to attempt to get my life together a little bit. How do you all deal when your life feels like it’s at capacity?
But guess what? I have something to look forward to. The countdown is officially ON for vacation! Less than two months until we are in…
Negril, Jamaica!!! We booked our trip today with the assistance of Heather, a reader who just happens to be a travel agent and offered to help us with our search. She was a great sounding board since we were really all over the place, to say the least. With her assistance we were able to book a seven-night trip and stay in budget. To say we are excited about our vacation would be an understatement! 😀
Quick glimpse at some of today’s eats.
Lunch: avocado, tomato and muenster cheese on Great Harvest Dakota with apple slices and plain 2% Greek yogurt topped with granola.
Snack: green tea kombucha and a Carrot Cake Larabar.
My sweet sister in law called around lunch today and invited us over for dinner. I haven’t seen her in months so I couldn’t turn down the offer. She and my brother in law had prepared quite a Monday night feast. I piled my plate high with the side items (this + more brussels sprouts).
Light’s out. Remember, the blog will be down tomorrow night sometime between 9 p.m. and 1 a.m. so I will be back at ya on hump day.
