phew! i feel like these past few weeks have been a total whirlwind! where in the world did the rest of august go? how is it that our vacation seems like it was eons ago?
the last few weeks feel like they have gone super quickly, but at the same time, it feels like they have dragged on and been much longer than just a few weeks...somewhere in there, the hubs and i celebrated our 6th anniversary and the hubs turned 33. of course, i went back to work, and we all know the mixed feelings i had about that. on top of all that, choi boy got the dreaded hand, foot, and mouth disease (yay.), which made for a miserable last week of august.
now that choi boy is back to his normal, healthy, goofy self, things are going pretty well in the back-to-work situation. the first week of school is always absolute madness, but we are slowly finding our groove and adjusting well. i'm finding my balance between momma and teacher and continuing to love both and appreciate the beauty of both. although...i was pretty discouraged by one particular comment on this post. i won't get into it because it hurts my heart and wears out my brain to think about getting into it, but i am so thankful for my dear friend, tina, and her words of wisdom.
and, the craziness to add to all of this? a certain someone turns TWO tomorrow (yup, you'd better believe there are simultaneous posts going on right now) and this bright momma had the brilliant idea to schedule choi boy's birthday party on the first saturday after school starts. for no less than 80 people. no, really, i'm so very excited for it and thrilled to be able to celebrate my little man, but boy, is it a lot of work!
in fact, i don't even know why i'm writing this post. there is much to be done! ack! perhaps it's my preemptive move to show you that i'm rather cuckoo lately and to excuse any exeptionally poorly written posts and even-more-stinky-than-usual photos. i don't know. just a thought.
no, seriously. must go do actual stuff now.
