Peaks and Valleys from the Week

Happy Friday!! Hopefully things are looking and feeling Spring-like where you are! After starting the  week with cold and rain, we're getting back into the warmth and sunshine today with 80 degree weather.

I thought I'd change it up a bit and write about the peaks and the valleys from the week.

Let's get the valleys out of the way:

~Having a bit of a breakdown after preschool teachers are harassing me to get meetings scheduled before I go out on maternity leave (one of them even showed up at my school to stalk me!) It's not my fault that these should have been done by May 1 and all of a sudden they're all panicking that I won't be here soon. I'm living by this motto now:

~After scheduling two of said meetings, getting the crappiest goals for kids' IEPs that I've seen. I swear one teacher just uses the same goals for all of her kids because I've seen the same crap goals last year with kids that she sent to my school.

~Coming down with a cold or allergies or something starting on Tuesday morning. So far it's a head cold/allergies only. I'm hoping I can kick it soon and that it stays out of my lungs. The last thing I want is to be having contractions and dealing with sniffles and coughing. Ugh.

Now on to some of the peaks!

~Because of my friendship with the building guy at our school, I was able to get my AC fixed to the point where it actually cools my room instead of blows luke warm air around. Key on 80+ degree days!

~The woman who is covering my maternity leave (and is overlapping with me for a couple of weeks before I go out) is amazing! She's helped me so much with seeing kids while I'm in meetings. I know that when I'm gone, my kids will be in good hands.

~I get to see some of my favorite people this weekend at my friend Bree's baby shower!

~My husband's female coworker got the baby this funny onesie:
~The sweet gift from one of my private school students and his little sister--they are such a nice family!
~I guess this would be a peak: some minor contractions throughout the week here and there (nothing consistent), but signs that baby girl is hopefully getting ready in there!

~Getting another check up on baby girl this afternoon!

Wishing you a happy, sunshine-filled weekend!!

  2. I haven't confirmed this medically, but my girlfriends and I (and my sister-in-law) have ALL gotten a horrible head cold, regardless of the season, right before delivery. I was on antibiotics at delivery with both boys because of a massive sinus infection. I'm thinking it's a sign...!

Seriously, I've been checking your IG daily to make sure I don't miss the news! (Assuming that you'll even put anything on there in the first place, of course.) EEK!
