This week has been overwhelming to say the least and I keep trying to tell myself it could be worse. I started my first day of teaching for the year on Monday. Which is enough in itself but to put the icing on the cake Jackson started kindergarten and Justin had knee surgery. I didn't really even have time to process the fact that Jackson was starting kindergarten... It may be sinking in just a little now.
I was able to walk down and see him and take a few pictures and he seems to be doing great! He is so grown up, which is what I want him to be.... But it still is surreal.
Justin had surgery Monday morning while all of this was taking place so his mom took him. He had to miss Jackson's first day and granny had to bring Jackson to school because they couldn't be there until 8:30. I was a little nervous that morning to say the least. I went to the hospital with Justin that night and stayed with him... Him and I slept great! Not. Thank goodness for my grandma this week!!! I don't know where I would be without her! After sleeping in the hospital and bringing home a very stubborn patient I went to work for the rest of the day... This whole week has seemed like a blur I have felt all out of sorts and on edge... Sorry to all I have been ill to.
I have been blessed to have a helpful husband and now that he is hurt I am at it pretty much alone in the evenings... daphne is teething something ridiculous and screams everytime her brother comes near her .... So my head is pounding and I am stressed. I got both of them bathed and snuggled with her for a few then went for a run, not sure how far but it was better than nothing... I came back read the same stories I read last night, snuggled with Jackson and put him to bed... Now me and this glass of wine are on the couch. Ps... She just screamed out in her crib as we are speaking... But it stopped. Phew. What a week. Yes I am complaining and I know "this too shall pass" I am telling myself that over and over again to keep from going crazy. I love being a mom more than anything in the world... This week has made me realize what a huge help my husband is and how I can't function sanely without him! All the while I am complaining he is in serious pain... Prayers for his speedy recovery please for his and my sake!!
