Today was my last day of work until after Little Kicker is born!!! It was a LONG day...we left our house at 6:20 am and just got home at 11 pm, but it was a good day. I love my job, but I'm glad to be done with it for a while :) I typically work one day per week, but for the past 6 weeks I've been working 2 days per week (since things are crazy in the public school system, especially special ed, at this time of year). I was surprised and dismayed by how totally wiped out I've been by working 2 days in a row. When I was pregnant with O, I was working 1 full time job and one part time job (about 60 hours per week) and commuting 2 hours a day. I was tired and sick all of the time, but I survived it. This time I had to spend a day recovering just from working 2 days :( I actually felt so bad on Saturday that I thought I was getting the flu. I'm sure that the fact that I'm still taking Unisom to control the nausea plays a big part in my overwhelming exhaustion. Hopefully, I can stop taking it soon.
I have LOTS of plans for a fun summer with my girl (and her daddy, of course!)...weekly science projects, weekly art projects, lots of circle time activities, weekly books with story stretcher activities, a few new Montessori activities, playing on the beach daily (weather permitting i.e. if I can stand the heat), daily gardening experiences, playing in her sweet pea teepee, building our sunflower house (once the sunflowers are tall enough), 3 weeks of FREE vacations, etc. So...stay tuned!
