Loooong week

It's been a long week over here.  I am so not used to getting up and having to be somewhere every day anymore.  This just happened to be one of my weird schedule weeks. (They seem to be happening more and more.) This certainly wasn't my usual Tuesday/Thursday/half day Friday week.
I think the real kicker for the week was having to be in Rockwall at 8 am for a conference on Monday morning.  That's a 55 mile drive from my house and not knowing how bad traffic would be I left at 6:30 for good measure. 
Side note:  I told Aaron on Sunday night I wouldn't want to be late because I would hate having to walk into a crowded hotel conference room struggling to find an open seat.  Aaron's comment to that was-  I guess that's what a kind of shy person thinks about when they are going to be late some place.  That thought has honestly never ever crossed my mind.

Well, there you have it!!!  Just a little window into how my mind works!!!

So this week was also a Benchmark testing week at my school.  I feel like we have those every week now, too!!!  These poor students at my school take these benchmarks for the STAAR all the time.  We literally shut down for the whole week, once a six weeks for them to take their "practice" tests.  It's ridiculous!  It makes me so glad to have gone to school during TAAS and TAKS where we didn't have so many benchmarks.

When it's a Benchmark testing week, I have to be at school Monday through Thursday because I have a small group that tests with me.  Because I was at the conference, I missed the first day.  Woohoo!!!  Then, I worked a half day Tuesday and Thursday with someone else covering my small group the second two hours of testing.  I worked all day Wednesday again helping with testing.  You get the idea.  Regardless, I worked a lot this week. 

Because I worked a lot and my schedule was all off, I have taken no pictures, and I feel like I haven't seen Jackson at all.  These weeks make me so grateful that I am able to be at home some during the week to spend time with my J.  I seriously don't know how full-time working moms do it!!!  I get tired just thinking about it.

I will leave you with the two pictures I took on Sunday before the loooong week hit...

These are my boys!!!  We were soaking up the beautiful Spring-like weather and playing outside.
Have a great Friday!!! I know I will.  I will be spending some much needed time with my boy.


  1. Whew! Glad you are almost through the crazy busy week -- and still have a smile on your pretty face!!

  2. Glad you survived your busy week! You said you don't know how full-time working moms do it. Well, I don't even know how part-time working moms do it. You are an inspiration, girl!
