Its only Wednesday and I'm already having one of those weeks...you know...those long, drawn out, would you hurry up and be over weeks. I've had obligations, appointments, dinner dates scheduled every night, and still have a professional observation of my teaching, an open house at school tomorrow night and then a banquet on Friday night.
On top of all that 'at night' stuff (and you know I really prefer my nights at home) I have going on, I also have had quite a crazy week of grad work. I have three small assignments and one big one all due FRIDAY. Seriously? Don't you know how busy I am?? Pshhh.
Sometimes, I wonder if all these things/events/people come together to devise a plan to dump it all on me in ONE week just to see if I can hack it. You know...to see if I pass the test of "hey let's load more on her ever-expanding body!" [Side note: As of my appointment yesterday, I've gained another 3lbs. That puts me at a grand total of 14lbs now. I just sigh a little every time I step on the scale and try to remind myself I'm growing a human, here.]
Although, I'm sure it's just a darn coincidence.
Oh, and I'll be honest, as busy as this week is and will be...I completely budget time in there for Declan and I to watch our shows, because...umm...I can't miss American Idol, or the Bachelor, or Amazing Race (to name a few). Plus, I still need time to, you know, unwind and relax in all this busy-ness.
Call this irresponsible.
Call it immature.
But I need some me-time. Or us-time, rather.
Once this week comes to close, I hope to get rewarded with a nice relaxing, weekend. [We'll see about that--the weather is calling for another big 'snowicane' around these parts. Sigh. Well, at least I get out of shoveling duty.]
*Edited to add: [since i wrote this post last night]
This morning was one of those mornings....seriously...I hate "those" mornings. It just figures with this week I would have one of those. First, I had a serious mental breakdown over my work maternity pants while getting ready. I couldn't find the ones I wanted, it was as if they disappeared. Then, I lost a tank top that I had JUST.set.down and seriously...couldn't find it. I flopped on the ground of the closet and cried, like a freaking baby, and Declan had to find my shirt for me. Seriously. Hormones, for real?
Then, I got to school all early feeling super good...and realized some little thief (called people who use my room after school) stole my q-tips that I needed for a painting lesson. You know, that lesson I am being observed teaching. So I had to get back in my car and run across the street to my other school and get the q-tips from there. I lost all the extra time I "thought" I was gonna have.
On top of all that, one of my guy friends/co-workers told me that I was sure to gain another 30lbs or so because "you always gain a ton of weight at the end". I wanted to slug him.
So, watch out for me today. I'm seriously in a not-pretty mood.
Hoping your week is stress-free...
Happy Hump Day!
