I am so tired to my graduate class already. This is actually a really funny statement because class has been cancelled for the last three weeks because of the weather. ha! But, I do not have the time nor the energy to read all of the assignments. What I dislike the most is the notes I have to take on the readings. I am nerdy by nature, so it creates an atmosphere (in my head) of illogical need to be the perfect student which is annoying. Yes, I am annoying myself. Am I making sense? It is somewhat interesting, but not that much. So much work!!!! I will be happy in 9 weeks when it is over!
Tomorrow is my baby’s birthday. I cannot believe Tyler is going to be three. He is such a mixed bag of personality! Two and a half has really tested me, but I have loved every minute of it. We are having a big family party for him on Sunday. But, of course, it is supposed to be snowy and crappy so it might be a smaller party than I had originally planned. I will be back tomorrow with more of an extensive blog about my true love for this little blonde boy.
In other news, Catholic Schools Week was a success. I enjoyed being part of the planning committee, but, boy, was it a lot of work! I learned a lot about people I can count on and unfortunately, those people I cannot. In the end, the kids had a great week and we really did stop and celebrate our school. I continue to have to stop and think how lucky I am to teach in a place where I am able to express my faith daily. I know there are many skeptics out there, but I challenge you to visit a Catholic school in your area and see what phenomenal things are happening there.
Our weekend was pretty uneventful. We spent a lot of time indoors because, well, the plague was still alive and well in our house. I *think* we are all finally over it. I am the only one still left with chronic congestion, but that will not relieve itself until I push out a baby in June. That is the weirdest pregnancy symptom I have…people do not believe it. My BFF, who is also pregnant (Can I get a what, what?!?!) is also having this issue. I feel bad for her, but I also feel sort of validated that this is, in fact, a real symptom.
This post has been all over the place…I kind of like it that way. Can we talk for just a minute about the fact that it is February already? My school year is flying by in the best possible/scariest way! Before I know it I will be sitting at graduation with another group of 8th graders. And, let’s not even start about my kids getting bigger and bigger by the day.
Gotta go…it’s time to prepare for the next weather apocalypse! Seriously, when are you going to end, Polar Vortex????
