I'm sorry things have been lame around here lately. I received a new book about Disney World (a 2009 edition) and I've been extremely, intensely involved in that - thinking about it, planning it, worrying it to bits.
I've already booked our trip. I just have to figure out the ins and outs and what we'd like to do when we're there, so I can have some sort of outline, even if we don't follow it to the letter. There are some things we absolutely want to do and other things we couldn't care less about, so I'm trying to get a feel for the parks, best times for attractions and shows and narrowing down our dining options.
There is just so much to it I can't even begin to type it out. Even I am getting tired of dealing with it and I still have 8+ months before we go.
Plus, apparently, no one signed up to be 5th grade home room mom. I have said - EVERY YEAR - that I did not want to do home room mom. I will help, but I never wanted to be the "go to" person. So far, I've served as at least a helper every year. This year, like last year, I will be c0-homeroom mom with the same friend I did this with for the fourth grade students.
This friend is smart, creative and organized - I like working with her. The bad news is that the beginning of the school year and the very end of the year are the busiest times for homeroom parents. So, I'm preoccupied with all that stuff too.
Plus, Sissy is going thru a very bad case of the "terrible twos". Often, she's frustrated and crying over nothing and while her communication skills are improving, she can't always tell us why she's having a melt down and most times, we can't figure it out. (or more specifically I can't figure it out, since I'm home with her all day, every day).
My poor brain is just in overdrive every day and it's not really working well for me! LOL.
I'm going to gather up whatever semblance of organization I can muster and try to be productive today. Hope your Friday is a kick off to a great weekend!
