TGIS - It's a New Week!

Yep, that's right, TGIS - Thank Goodness It's Sunday. You see, my weeks begin on Sunday and run through Saturday, so today starts a new week and although I know it could be worse, I'm going to be more optimistic. I'm not sure that I made the right choice in deciding to teach this semester because although I don't know what it feels like when you're drowning...I imagine it feels much like what I felt like for the last 144 hours - yep that's six full days. You see we started our pre-season training on Monday. I went to spinning, looking forward to getting back at working out to come home and find a note from my husband on the door. Sweet, right? Nope...the babysitter was sick and he had the babies at the office...I needed to come right away. Lucky for me, on only my second day of teaching, I had to take the boys to work with me all day. It was a mess. And it seemed like the week got progressively worse as it rolled on. I feel like I don't have time for anything anymore. I mean I love my job, but these boys are my life. Between wrtiing pre-season workouts, contacting recruits, working on Pointer Pups, house cleaning, cooking, grocery shopping, laundry, etc. how to I fit my boys in...not just A&B, but Josh too. I'm so frustrated and hope that we will slowly figure something out that will become more manageable for us because I am a perfectionist. Everything has to be done well, and I cannot stand when I do a job that isn't up to my standards. So here's to a cleaner house, better classes, a more organized mom and spending time with the three (make that four...can' leave Atlas out) most important boys in my life! Here's to a good....NO....GREAT week! Enjoy the pics.

Well...the pics are cute! I know how hard it is to balance everything in the beginning. I'm not working outside the home but can only imagine the extra challenges it adds to things. I HOPE this week is a better one for you!

Hi, I don't even know how I found your blog. I went back to work when my son was 4 months old, it was so hard for the first few weeks or so! I remember thinking that I "hated" it. I can imagine it would be doubly hard with twins. Good luck. Your boys are adorable BTW.
