Very rainy and wet today. A typical February day. The weather is why I hate early February so much (although we are starting to get into late February by now). Hopefully after this storm goes on all week it will ease up on the rain and we can have some sunshine. I am looking forward to the sunshine.
I had a better day yesterday trying to let go of worry. I talked to Bob and we came to the conclusion that I really don’t have anything to worry about–we’re financially stable, our girls are doing well (and if two of them aren’t, it’s really out of our hands at this point), and our marriage is on an even keel. I told him most of what I got worried about was related to his expectations and needs, and he told me that I needed to let go of that. SO that was good to hear. I didn’t get as much done on my to-do list as I needed but I can keep going knowing that I can manage as best as I can and I do not have to “do it all” by myself.
I do need to start grading now that I feel better. I can be fairer to the kids today than I could have yesterday. I will start going through those research journals once I get home. I am trying to use this time to decompress from being in class and on point and do my constructive work at home. We will see how that works out.
I will see TIllie next Tuesday and see what we can talk about. Next Tuesday is going to be busy, busy–I have Tillie, then Holly for my haircut and color. Then the usual Tuesday stuff. We go to Birmingham this weekend and will see how the girls do in dance competition for the first time this year. THe dance teacher has come up with a complex hairstyle for them but has assigned a dance mom to do my youngest one’s hair for it so I don’t have to worry about it. I am so glad.
We will see how the rest of the week goes. I think it is going to go well. I am trying to be positive and everything for it. I feel better so that will make things go better. I am looking forward to trying to finish my school work and get everything ready for the trip this weekend. Hope everyone else has a good rest of the week.
