I survived the wedding of my good friends AND the first week of school with teachers back. GO ME! Let me tell you there were a few days when I started to question how everything was going to work out, but here it is Friday, and I’m hanging in there.
Our good friends’ wedding was last weekend. It was a bit more drama-filled than any other wedding I’ve been to, but it was lovely. It was also the shortest ceremony I’ve ever been to (10 minutes people), but everything was very pretty. After the reception, we went back to the hotel (where apparently everyone was staying) and went across the street to a local bar. It was pretty nice too, loud, but nice. We got back to our room at 2 am and had to be up by 8:30 to get our butts back home in time for our babysitter to get to work.
This week was the first week teachers came back. To summarize this week: Let the Games Begin. I haven’t seen a such a bunch of whiney complainers in a while. Yikes! I think for the most part, we solved everyone’s issues and made most people happy. And if not…oh well at this point. We are going to be hiring 1, maybe 2 new teachers. That’ll be a treat since the school year officially starts Monday and most great teachers already have a school to work for…so yeah there’s that. At least our kids should be all set for school. Ok, so I don’t know the time my youngest’s bus will be dropping him off yet, but I will get that Monday morning. Other than that, everything is set to go.
In other news, I have a race tomorrow morning that I’m pretty sure is not going to go exactly as planned. Luckily it’s a short race (a 4K), but I don’t think I’m going to be able to run without walking part of it. I took quite a break from running and then this week got back into it again. Both of my runs were 2-2.5 miles, and both of them I walked a portion. Oh well. It just means I can’t continue to be lazy with a full marathon coming up in November. EEEEEEK!!!
