What a big adjustment for you and your husband-they were such a big part of your lives for so long.No big weekend plans here. I was shocked to see the scale was down this morning. It has not been a stellar week!
Twins are with mom until we meet Sunday to get them. DH and I's goal is to get as much packed of their stuff as we can! Last night I tried to find all their books. I have a couple smaller boxes to put books in. Filled one and will probably fill another. Can't really tell I've packed books! Went through Twin1's clothes so have that ready to go. Need to do that with Twin2's clothes. We're going to have scorching weather and then just warm weather so will take all cooler clothes to mom. This morning's job is to search under beds. Wish us luck!!!
I keep trying to analyze my feelings about them leaving, but it's such a jumble! Most times I'm elated to have DH and a quiet house to myself again, but then I am so worried about the rest of their lives. I really need to stop borrowing trouble and just be in the moment. ommmmmm
We didn't know Mom was taking them this weekend so I went grocery shopping. Now I believe I will be making some freezer meals since I have lots of produce to use!!!
My daughter’s 1st grade teacher was not good with small children (she previously taught 5th grade). To this day I regret not asking to have her placed in another class. It’s hard not let these things come home with you.Work-Life Balance Bear. Finishing up the school year has me planning for next year hoping to be closer to normal. Lots of retirements and movements within the school leaves me with only one grade partner, Mrs. R., who has been in the school for several years as the other two will be new hires. Mrs. R. almost got moved to a higher grade due to parent/student complaints. I was hoping for her move because our philosophies are opposite, and I think she shouldn't work with children, especially "littles". Anyway, the principal gave her another chance, so she will be around. One of the new hires is subbing for the Mrs. R. now while she is on leave. This new hire comes from a developmentally appropriate background just like me, and we would like to bring kindergarten back to a more child-centered teaching model. This kept me up one night until 2:30am giving me only 3 hours sleep that night. Somehow, I have to find a way to put the school day behind me when I get home from school so that I can sleep. Problem is that teachers tend to bring their work home with them, and that is me.
This morning I woke up to 48 degrees. We refused to put the heat back on, so the house was 59. I have a space heater going, and I had to dig out an extra quilt last night and my winter nightgown and robe. This does NOT feel like Memorial Day Weekend! The pool is open and ready, but it's NOT happening anytime soon.
That is such a shame especially since 1st grade is such an important grade.My daughter’s 1st grade teacher was not good with small children (she previously taught 5th grade). To this day I regret not asking to have her placed in another class. It’s hard not let these things come home with you.
