I’ve been overworking myself. This week I had two wonderful sessions. Last night I kind of had a meltdown and Hubs told me that I need to stay home from church today to chill. A day of rest sounds both wonderful and pretty much impossible. I’ll probably head to Sunday School anyway!
Despite the fact that I’m overworked, life has been lovely lately. Bri has been mastering words that she used to mispronounce. It’s sort of bittersweet to hear her say them correctly now. She used to say “metany” in place of monkey but now she says it right. There are a slew of other words that she’s picked uptoo. She knows the days of the week and loves to play this game where she whispers each one in succession, “monday, tuesday, wednesday, thursday, friday” and then gleefully yells, “SAH-TUR-DAY!!!”
The school year has been intense. Our teacher work days have been traded for furlough days. Most teachers are picking up the slack at home. I’ve had lots of work to juggle between papers to grade, sessions to edit and the day to day stuff at home. Hubster has made it so much easier for me. He’s great about taking Bri when I need time to edit and he’s seriously awesome about cleaning up around the house. We’re making it work.
I still love teaching but I’m beginning to love photography more. It’s hard to say no to those sessions that eat up my spare time.
