If you're going to harass me on Facebook people, I guess I better get on this. See, peer pressure really is quite effective! :)
I, of course, planned to get Christmas on here before I returned to work. That didn't happen and then reality has been pretty hairy these past 2 weeks. Thank goodness for the suprise of having Friday off. A 4-day weekend was just what the doctor ordered. Speaking of doctor, we may well be taking Addison there tomorrow. Seems we've all been sick since I returned to school. Hmm...coincidence? I think not. I have been sick twice in the 9 days since I returned. Lovely. Thankfully Jeff has stayed healthy (until today) and as usual, picked up my slack. What would I do without that man? Let's not even try to imagine... I would like to ask, if you're so inclined, to lift up a prayer. Adjusting to teaching after being off for 15 months has been rough. It's improved a bit now that Addison is sleeping better at the sitter's, but still. My heart continues to ache as I put her to bed each night, knowing I won't be spending the entire next day with her. I'm still blessed beyond measure to have had the time I did, and summer will be here in no time. At least that's what I'm telling myself. The outpouring of support has certainly helped. I've been so touched with the many emails, texts, and calls. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for thinking of me and Addison during this adjustment. And you can add Jeff to that as well. He's struggled more than he thought he would. That morning drop-off is just not fun, even when you know your baby is in great hands, has a super fun playmate, and has a day of fun ahead. Hopefully this time will pass in the blink of an eye and who knows what God has in store for me next. I'm just praying that my life lines up with His plan. That's all I can ask for.
I really did plan to do the Christmas posts but I'm just too sleepy. I'll do my best to get it done tomorrow. And if I don't, feel free to give some grief. I know you all will.
