So, I have a ton of things I wanted to post about last week, but things got too crazy around the Tow house.
Besides starting back at work on Monday, which has been kind of hard for me, (I’m pretty sure I was depressed on Monday and Tuesday, but I’m feeling much better now), my car broke down on Tuesday evening, we had to transfer the car from the dealership to a local service place on Wednesday, on Thursday Jamie got sick, and then Friday I had to take her to the pediatrician.
So, as you can see I’ve been pretty busy. Through it all I was able to make dinner 3 times this week (which is one of my goals for 2011- make 3-4 dinners a week), get my tree down, clean the bathrooms, mop my floors, do dishes about 3900 times, clean the litter box daily, and get all the laundry done. I feel like superwoman. This working mom stuff is not for the weak of heart, obviously!
Despite the crappiness of the fact that my engine light is back on (even though we paid $725 for the repairs) and that Jamie woke up about every 2 hours last night because she’s so stopped up she can’t breathe well, it wasn’t a terrible week. I mean, worse things happen to people. But, like they say…”when it rains it pours,” and boy is it pouring! I mean literally! It’s really raining hard outside and that’s made me even crabbier today. Yes! I had to use my teacher voice repeatedly for the first time since I’ve been back to school and then it prompted me to write a referral (already!). AGH!!
On a side note, did you know I have to wake up around 5:15 on a regular day to get to work? Do you know I’ve been waking up around 4:45 am now that I have a baby so I can feed and change her before I leave? So, isn’t it funny that this weekend I “slept in” until 7:30 am and I was truly excited that Jamie “let” me sleep that long??? The old Suzanne couldn’t make it to a 7:20 am class 15 years ago. The new Suzanne feels refreshed to wake up that early. Funny!! Another mommy thing I need to get used to.
Speaking of mommy things, I think some of you thought I was kidding when I mentioned in an earlier post that I think I have mommy thumb. Well, I actually wasn’t kidding around about that! My right thumb/wrist is hurting like CRAZY! So, I’m going to the Dr. today to have that checked out. That should be a fun little activity Jamie and I get to do in the pouring rain! *sarcasm* I’ll keep you updated on that later, along with Mommy-Butt Monday, and various other things I’ve been working on lately. Get ready for a Blog Blast later tonight!
PS- after running spell check on this post I found that “crappiness” is not a word, but “crappies” is. Really? I don’t know that I could use crappies in a sentence unless I said something like “I got the crappies from eating too much ice cream last night.” I don’t know! Is that a word??
