I didn't plan on ignoring my blog for almost a month but that's what happened. Truth is, work has been crazy busy that I'm mentally exhausted whenever I get home that I just want to relax and not think about anything for at least 30 minutes, or longer. The last few weeks of school were a blessing because Bella had no homework (thank you Jesus) so other than making sure Christopher had all his work turned in and was prepared for finals, it was relatively easy. These last two weeks of work has had my anxiety and stress levels at an all time high. I finally hit a breaking point yesterday. Thank goodness for co-workers who were willing and able to jump right in to help a girl out. I actually left work on time yesterday thanks to their help. I came home, ordered pizza for supper, grabbed an ice cold beer and sat outside for a while with my sweet kids. I'm out here again tonight for a bit. It feels too nice to be inside, although we need to spray the yard because those pesky mosquitoes keep finding us.
My vacation time is just around the bend and I can't wait to be off and relax for a good 12 days. Other than maternity leave, this will be the most time I have ever taken off from work. We will start out at the beach house this year and end at the river. Momma can't wait. The kids are pretty anxious too.
Speaking of the kids, they are happy to be done with school, well Bella is. Christopher has to take 3 weeks of summer school to get a half credit in English. He failed the first semester, past the second but not enough to pass for the year. I'm not even going to get into this because I have talked and cried enough for everyone and then some. He will take care of business these 3 weeks and go into his senior year ready to kick ass all year. Bella ended the year with the A/B Honor Roll. She has already checked out books to read for the summer and almost done with summer reading program where she can receive a free book, just for reading 10. Of course Christopher thinks this is nuts. Can you say night and day?
Well I'm going back inside because although I have sprayed, the mosquitoes still love my legs. Hope y'all are all well and enjoying your summer.
Love & hugs!
