November is almost over, and it didn’t start wearing on me until this morning.
I suspect it’s because I’m staring down the barrel of two PD days in a row this week. In a row! WHAT THE SHIT, SCHOOL BOARD?? They are off tomorrow, off Thursday, back for Friday, then the weekend. Would it have killed them to do the two days off as Thursday & Friday? WOULD IT???
It’ll be fine, I’m sure.
At least this year we got the report cards before parent-teacher night. This has never happened before, which was just baffling, if you ask me. It somehow managed to make both parent-teacher AND the report card completely irrelevant; as a parent I didn’t have anything specific to ask about during the meeting, and then when the report card came there were no surprises.
I rummaged through the mitten box this morning because the temperature has dropped 20 degrees since yesterday – it’s cold out there – and realized that I forgot to buy more, even though I planned to a couple months ago. So then I felt stupid. Then I had to think about whether or not snowpants were a good idea today (I decided against it and I’m feeling really guilty now, because the wind is pretty cold). I’m getting a migraine and my brain hurts. NOVEMBER. FROM HELL’S HEART I STAB AT THEE.
On the plus side, George did his entire swimming lesson last night with a smile on his face, and he went to preschool this morning without a fuss. I think maybe we’ve turned a corner on the whole “I can’t ever be away from Mommy” thing. I’m going away this weekend, though, so we’ll see.
