The weeks are just flying by. I can hardly believe that I've completed my first month back to work and the kids have been in school 3.5 weeks. I've even noticed that it's just about dark at 8:00 this week, which is a good step toward fall weather. Our temps this week have hovered in the 93-96 range so fall will be a welcome change.
This week was fairly uneventful. I worked at the office two days; at home two days. Brian started off the week with a 2 a.m. wake-up Monday, but moved it to 3:00, 4:00, and 5:00 on consecutive days so that's certainly progress. He even made it home a few minutes before 5:00 last night, which is most definitely a first for the school year. Unfortunately, there is a shake-up at school and teachers are being shuffled to new positions. He is not one of them (thank goodness) but his partner is being replaced. He was home by 5:00 because he left in order to avoid all the crying, cursing, and shouting. Good times!
Rory has spent the week sniffling and coughing. She has her standard start-of-the-year cold which quickly morphs into a crazy asthma thing that requires round the clock inhaler puffs. I'm hopeful she is on the downhill slide.
Our weekend is full of all kinds of good things. I managed to swap kids with Aunt Liz so they're staying with her between school and a Parent's Night Out hosted at school. I'll take Addison tomorrow night in exchange. As a result, Brian and I have an unexpected date night. Woohoo! It has been a stressful few weeks, and we are both in need of a little drama-free adult conversation. Tomorrow I'm meeting a friend for brunch and then we have family and friends coming over for dinner tomorrow night. Monday is Labor Day, which means no work or school and the annual Labor Day cookout at Michael and Liz's house. I'm also determined to scrap a layout just for fun.
Bring on the weekend!
