I have been struggling with a blank brain for a few days..... I think it has something to do with schedule overload and pms. Ha!
My kids have been taking their achievement tests this week, and since we live about 25 minutes away from where they were taking them, I decided save some gas and stay in the building to do homeschooling with my youngest while the older two were testing. For three days we took Roger to his GSA at 7:30am then killed time until 9am when the testing started. It was finished by 12pm and we would run other errands and go home. Monday night we had company....family. Tuesday night we took my youngest boy to the ER with a severely sprained ankle (today, he is still wearing the splint, using crutches and cannot put forward motion on his foot!!! Poor kid!). Wednesday night is church, but first, we had testing from 9am to 12pm. Piano from 12:30pm to 2pm and then got home long enough to turn around and leave again!!! =/
This week has given me a new appreciation for what working (outside of the home) moms have to do every day!!! I don't think I would handle that very well......I like being at my house, getting my feet dirty in my garden, playing with our dog and taking a nap every now and then!!! I like not having to be ready to leave my house at a certain time and being able to make my own schedule up as the day progresses!! I like the freedom I have as a stay-at-home mom!!!!!!
I told my hubby that when the kids were grown and out of the house I would have to find a job that is from 10am to 2pm. Hahaha!!!
It doesn't help at all, that I am pretty sure my body is changing in some mysterious ways and I seem to have no control over that. I find myself behaving like the Wicked Witch of the West and I have no idea why!!I'll just blame it on extreme PMS for now! I just want to be left alone and am very crabby and short tempered (not my usual self AT ALL!!!). I am going to talk to my doc about it. Maybe he will have some answers. Meanwhile, my husband says, "I just try not to take it personally." I am thankful for that!!!
He is a wonderful man and I am very lucky!!! =)
So my brain has been a blank for a few days now.....I don't like it, but what can I do???
Eat some chocolate, drink a coke and take a nap I guess!!!!
