First, I want to thank you for all of the encouraging comments on my post yesterday. I read them after arriving home from a late-night trip to Walmart to get the items for my son’s special “Trip to the Moon” day at school. The items were supposed to be sent on Wednesday, but completely slipped my mind until yesterday afternoon, and then I wasn’t able to go to the store until after our baseball game was over. So, since I was feeling even lower than when I wrote that post, your comments were exactly what I needed to hear. They made me sob, but it was a good sob.
So today, I’m trying to get things back to some sense of order, hopefully to avoid hasty last minute backpack purging which causes me to not read notes immediately and therefore forget important things.
Did a general (though not complete) pick-up.
Nothing was done perfectly, and I moved incredibly slowly because I felt almost no energy to put behind my movements, but I did them, and I’m glad. Hopefully I haven’t forgotten any major commitments for this afternoon and I’ll be able to come home and crash for a few hours before we go to a professional baseball game tonight. My kids are so excited, and I don’t want to be a zombie-downer-mommy.
