This week has been a rough week. I fought with at least 4 students at various times this week. Classes in general have been loud and lazy. There has been tension among the faculty and as a co-chair of SIT (School Improvement Team), I feel like I needed to do something about it. Yesterday after school I had a headache, which is unusual for me. I so wanted to tweet about how bad I felt and how tired I was. I really, really wanted to complain, but I didn't. I tried choosing joy.* I even said those words to myself.
I came home and the boys were visiting a friend. So I got silence. I also got a snack and a couple minutes to sit down in my comfy clothes with a book. They came home and shortly thereafter Drew took Ben to play outside. So I even got a few minutes to rest, which helped my headache. Drew cooked supper, like normal, and helped me give Ben a bath. After that, Ben chilled and watched some videos of himself. He also played quietly and by himself with his newly rediscovered car racing ramp. I got to read a little more. I also chatted, via text, with a friend who I hadn't talked to in a while. I relaxed! I even thought, "What day is tomorrow?" I was so relaxed I wasn't even thinking about Friday, the end of the work week.
I am so thankful for a job that allows my husband to pamper me and for a husband who will pamper me!
