As a teacher, May is a very exciting, frustrating road block between the school year and mecca...summer! This year it was an extra pain-in-the-butt. Our house fought a very nasty virus for over 3 weeks. It went from B to T to me and back to T and B...and it wouldn't go away!!! On Tuesday-Thursday of last week, I was feverish and teaching wrapped up in a blanket. What a teacher does to make sure her kids don't fall behind. I felt horrible! Thank God for my Mommy, who was in town helping us out. My MIL has a very horrible injury, so she has been unable to watch B the past few weeks. B has been shuffled between daycare and one of us being home for a few weeks now. My mom came to Ohio to help us out for 4 days, and it was perfect timing. I was so sick, so it was nice to have MY MOMMY there to take care of me, and help me with the kids. Thanks Mom!
On top of the icky virus, school has been all-consuming. With projects, finals, grading, kids begging for extra credit, and parents calls, it's a very hard time. I pulled three 13 hour days last week trying to get it all done. Being away from my babies was very hard, but I just had to tell myself that by the same time next week, I was going to be a SAHM of two!!! :)
On top of normal end-of-the-school year crap, I am also in the process of moving classrooms. It's amazing how much you can accumulate in 6 years. I am moving up 2 floors, and had to do it all by myself. Needless to say, I was THE WORST mom this week. But I got through it. Today is my first day of summer. Woo Hoo!!! Unfortunately, I have to go into work again a few times this week to finish up the move, but grades are done:)
So...here's what we've been up to during this crazy month called May:
T graduated from Preschool:)
My handsome boy!
Now that summer's here...my blog will finally get back on track. There are big changes on tap for Running Through Parenthood, like a brand new look. :) Hope you'll come back to visit again.
