Friday night the Drama Club I sponsor performed the two plays the kids have been working on (both around 45 minutes). They did an absolutely incredible job and I could not be more proud of them. I cried when I said goodbye to the 8th grade girls who have been with me since 6th grade and loved seeing my newbie current 6th graders shine in the spotlight.
Since Sunday's are super crazy here and at my mom's (ahh - the life of a teacher), we all decided to celebrate Mother's Day on Saturday. We went over in the mid-afternoon and hung out for a while. I finished knitting a washcloth for my mom and then we all had dinner at a favorite restaurant. It was great to spend time with my mom.
I started this washcloth on Saturday morning and finished Saturday night - first time I finished something in one day. I gave it to my mom. I hope she uses it!!
Sean - I am getting over bronchitis slowly but I still feel a little run down. This has prevented me from going to the gym or being able to go out for a nice long run. I am hoping that I will be able to get back in the full training routine this coming week as the big race is only 90 days away!
I went back and forth about whether I was going to post this on here but maybe it will help me process how I am feeling and be almost cathartic.
I spent a lot of time on Sunday feeling very down and just overwhelmingly sad. Sean and I have been trying to have a baby for about a year and it is not working for us. We are starting the testing process to see where the problems are and how to fix them. This year, for some reason, I couldn't shake the feeling of sadness that I am not yet a mom. I have put my faith in God that I will be a mom one day and I am grateful that He hears and answers my prayers. Perhaps next year I will have a little one to celebrate with.
Happy Monday everyone!
