I have to say, this is turning out to be a very tough week for me. The first day back from track break I was kind of lost. I did my lesson plans for this week before I left, but coming back I failed to feel the excitement for what I had planned. I wasn't into it. The students were tired. I let them have probably way too much free reading time on Monday ~ which they love, by the way.
And it's hot, really hot ~ record heat. Because Greg works in it all day every day, we are usually not allowed to complain about the heat. But I tell you, it saps all the energy out of me! I think it's worse sometimes because I do spend all day inside. I come out at 3:11 (strange time, I know) to dismiss the students and think I'm going to just die. It feels like someone slapped me in the face with a hot poker!
Then all three of us girls in this house managed to catch whatever bug Megan had at the beach house last week. Thanks, Megan. Now we are battling sore throats, stuffy noses, and the like. Right in the middle of summer. So when I come home from work all I want to do is go to bed. When I get up in the morning, all I want to do is go back to bed. Dishes are not done. Even though I managed to get most of the vacation laundry done, much of the other stuff is still scattered wildly in the living room.
So much for my grandiose plans of being productive in the evenings ~ crafting, cleaning, general happy housewifeness. Ha! I'm lucky I can peel myself off the couch long enough to make dinner. Even still, Tuesday night I told everyone they were on their own. But the kids think it's cool to have cereal for dinner, so I can't go wrong really.
I guess I know what I'm doing this weekend!
