Me time? Ha. Righhhhht.
It was one of those curveball, absolutely exhausted, “Is it Friday yet?” kind of weeks. Needless to say, I didn’t complete any of my DIY projects that I have been storing up.
At school, I had to deal with one of my classes needing an attitude adjustment. I knew it was coming. It never fails…this is the time of year that 7th graders absolutely lose their everloving minds. Spring has sprung…and so have their hormones. Everything is out of whack. Don’t get me wrong, though. I love this age group. They’re weird and unpredictable because they’re starting to learn who they are and it is so entertaining. But man, are they exhausting during this phase.
Not to mention we were coming right out of Easter weekend, which left me extra tired Monday morning. We had an awesome day with family after putting on a production at our church for the morning and evening services.
We had two evening meetings and youth church all by Wednesday, so we were looking forward to an agenda-free Thursday evening. Only then, I came home to a feverish Abby so our evening consisted of a doctor visit and trip to the pharmacy for an antibiotic. This is the first time she has ever been sick so we dropped everything to take care of our sweet girl. It’s now Saturday and her high fever is finally gone, but we’re still monitoring a low grade fever.
So in a nutshell, life happened this week. A project did not.
And that’s ok. Family is everything to me. Any spare time I had this week was spent talking with my husband and taking care of the girls. Projects can wait because they will always be there. Was I looking forward to trying out my new “mirror effect” spraypaint? Absolutely. But I’m not disappointed. It’ll get done 🙂
Even though I did not complete a project this week, my spare time was definitely still well spent. Abby is feeling better, my students are straightening up, and today I was able to sleep in and catch up on rest…and Fixer Upper. 😉
Have you ever had “one of those weeks”? What got you through it?
