A lot of rambling
We started school last Wednesday. This Monday we started ‘officially’. It’s going ok… but can be a bit stressful. Today had one such moment. I briefly wondered why I do this to myself. I had my preschooler having a meltdown, my baby screaming to nurse (again…), my first grader saying “Mom! What do I do here?”, my second grader saying ” I don’t understand. Help me!” and my third grader saying “Mom! Where’s the meter stick? I need to measure your desk.” I almost cried, but instead took a deep breath and said a quick prayer. My first grader then remembered where the meter stick was so jumped down to get it, I was able to pop the baby on to nurse and help my second grader after distracting the preschooler w/ a Kipper video and then helped first grader. Phew.
In other news. I was SO SICK w/ mastitis last Thurs/Fri/Sat. I started the antibiotic on Sat and ended up feeling better, but so nauseas and a horrible headache from the meds. Fun, fun.
We finally spent a family day together. We went for a drive up in Keene Valley, NY and then to Saranac Lake area. It was so beautiful. We found an easy trail to hike on (It was Sat when I was sick so we couldn’t go far.) It was a good day and much needed.
I have some great pictures… I’ll have to post them.
