The end is nigh -
Oh it is so close -
And yet I am still running like a bat out of hell...
This week is a crazy one: my brother from out West is coming today and leaving on Saturday: so I must squeeze in two good visits! And it's only me around here for three days and two nights: just call me single mom. So (and I know many do this daily, so bare with me....)I will have to run after school to pick up my little girl from one side of town, grab all her necessities and fly across town to meet up with my family - and I will do this twice...
hm. Sounds fun - huh? Well, I figure, sleep and relax when I am dead, right?
And then once the week of winding down my classroom, and trying to tone down my students, I will be off to D. to spend time with le and family on her 30th birthday! A milestone, indeed!!! We are all excited to go and see le's and Nh's digs - e talks about it nightly before bed: last night it was is it four more sleeps mama? No dear, five more sleeps.... and her response? But I can't wait that long! ....(I know, pretty amazing language for a nearly 15 month old, right?)
And seven more days of school - trying to fill the days with structure and calm....wish me luck!
