If we were having coffee I would have my laptop and text books with me. I would tell you that I am taking a much need break from studying and then when you leave I will hit the books again.
I would begin by ordering a pumpkin spice latte with an extra shot of espresso and say please distract me from my homework! Yes, we would be meeting at Starbucks, they have pumpkin spice now right?
I would begin by saying that although I have been taking classes for two years straight that we are now down to the hard stuff and to say I am counting down the classes would be an understatement! There is several people from my work that are in the same class so it helps to know someone is in the same boat.
I would also tell you that the girls have been in school for two weeks now and it is going great! The kindergartener has been plum exhausted and we are doing good to get her a bath before she passes out on the couch. The second grader starts art lessons next week which she is super excited about.
I would tell you that we have been back and forth about whether or not to meet with a counselor for 2nd grader and decided to bite the bullet and meet with her. She put all our fears at ease and very well thinks that her behaviors could be physiological versus mental. She has had constipation her entire life and she explained how those kids can anger easily and become emotional as they eventually regulate their bowels they have a feeling of loss of control.
She meets with her on Friday so we will know more after that. I hesitated to make the appointment because mostly she is a happy, normal kid but has trouble explaining her feelings. The hubby does not think that this is necessary but at the same time we both do not want to assume anything.
I would take a deep breath and tell you that I have fallen off the weight watchers band wagon and have gained every pound that I lost. It is quite depressing but I am going to get back on because I can feel the difference from when I eat healthy versus eating the junk food. I feel tired, cranky and run down again and need that to go away pronto!
My kindergartener is having a birthday Sunday and my normally well planned ahead self has not prepared for it! it will all be last-minute this year, but we are also going to have a small and simple party at home. She chose and Ariel theme so that will be the theme of her cake this year!
I would tell you that although I love my new job, it has been a little stressful lately and I hope that the chaos comes to an end soon. My new job has been my saving grace as I am able to better balance work, family and school.
I would ask you to tell me what’s going on in your life and then go on to study for my quiz tomorrow. I would tell you thank you for meeting me for coffee and please for my sanity’s sake let’s do it again next week!
