I stayed home from school today. It was a "mental health" day.
The intent was to stay home with Gretchen, but she ended up being fine.
Since sub plans were already made and we were paying for daycare regardless... I decided to take advantage of my day.
Slept late. (not real late, since I still had to get kids to school... but it was an hour later than I usually get up)
Big kids to school.
Gretchie to daycare.
A leisurely breakfast.
Several things crossed off my never-ending To-Do-List.
Hotel reservations made. (mini family vacation coming soon!)
Ran a few errands.
Sonic Diet Dr. Pepper.
Shopping at some of my favorite places... Eddie Bauer Outlet, Old Navy and Target.
New jeans. (a size smaller than I thought I needed!!)
Decided on outfits for family pictures.
Found a Halloween costume for Lawson.
Cleaning. (because as my husband so nicely put on Facebook, "our house looks like it threw up on itself.")
Sonic Happy Hour with the kids.
It was a good day.
A much needed day.
Parent/teacher conferences the last two weeks.
Meetings, meetings, meetings.
New curriculum that I am really not loving.
All day kindergarten.
My mental health was getting a little shaky.
I'm not 100%... but it's better.
Today was good.
And I saw this quote on a t-shirt: "You call them gray hairs. I call them stress highlights."
Wishing I had gotten my stress highlights covered up before my high school reunion this weekend...
