Good morning~ Creeping toward the weekend, and not a moment too soon. DP is going to run a marathon in Dallas and I'm staying home with Alice for our first 'solo flight'. I'm actually really looking forward to a few days on my own (ish), and honestly happy not to have to go and do Marathon Wife stuff (wait at the finish line to drive her sweaty butt back to the hotel). Now just hoping to get to Friday without Mean Girl trouble. Funny story there: we were all given a 'School Climate Survey' to fill out about whether or not we feel valued and supported etc. I was honest, as were a lot of people apparently, and then I heard from one of my friends on the inside that MG and her henchwomen decided that the people who'd given negative responses were 'probably having a bad day'. Yup, that's it. Certainly nothing to do with you, ma'am.
OMOM~ I'm digging your meeting story! Wow! Nothing beats a mountain blizzard and a zombie village, for sure. Wow!
Ad Astra~ Big hugs to you. I for one would be more than happy to be here for your daily terrified post. I can't imagine what you've been/are going through and am always here for support, even if it just means listening to you vent. AHope gave lots of good anxiety suggestions. I'm just going to offer more hugs xoxoxo
AHope~ Hugs to you too for your boo hoo baby. Alice seems to be adjusting to her Mother's Day Out, but I'm still apprehensive every time, waiting for the call to say that she won't stop crying.
Everyone else: Hello!!
AFM~ A bit of a fuss last night with DP about messiness (hers) and negativity (mine again). I'm still feeling a bit of the 'fight hangover' this morning, but hope to shake it off. It's progress, really, since we actually HAD the discussion rather than her just sulking. Still, it's not much of a start to the day. We also heard an NPR report about the Milwaukee co-sleeping ad campaign yesterday and she gave me lots of meaningful looks while the anti- person was talking about the dangers. So it's been a stressful few days. I think the weekend break will do us both good.
Love to all~ have a terrific Thursday!
