So, it's Thursday... I think... and I've been in the house since Monday. And Monday, I only got out for an hour to take the kids to the dentist. So, basically since Sunday, I've been at home. Doing nothing. And it's causing me to go a little...stir crazy.
Cabin fever is starting to set in.
It never takes long. There's only a certain amount of time that I can sit, or putter around the house, clean, read, or even write before I start getting extremely antsy and cranky. And, apparently today I've reached that point.
I got a call this morning from my school's admin assistant filling me in on upcoming dates. She then asked if I'd be going back to work next week...as in going to work in my classroom. I'm not required to, she was just wondering. But, when she asked me, I became very torn. Apart of me thought, "Really? It's already that time? Ugh!" The other part thought, "Thank goodness!! I can finally get back in my classroom and start getting busy preparing for the start of the new year!!"
That's when it hit me that I've reached that time, when I can't stay in the house another moment. I HAVE to find something to do...anything... to get me out and take my mind off of...well...nothing. I need something to fill my mind, cause sitting around looking at my house is driving me nutso.
Today, the weather is beautiful. It's not too hot, there's plenty of cloud cover, and there's very little humidity. And yet, I'm sitting here tapping my thumbs trying to come up with something to do. Normally, I'd take the kids to the mall or something... but then I spend money, and I don't really want to do that just yet. Our big shopping extravaganza will happen soon enough. It's not really warm enough (for me) to go to the water park. I could have gotten up earlier and taken the kids to Silver Dollar City, but now it's too late for that.
What to do? What to do?
I guess the good thing is I've got some stuff lined up for this weekend. I have a birthday party I'm taking the kids to and I have a girls' night out planned with Sanity. Both I am very much looking forward to.
The sad part is, I'll be waking up bright and early in just 2 short weeks and will think "Where did my summer go?"
That's when I'll start thinking of all the stuff I wanted to do on my break, but somehow never got around to doing... even though I spent way too much time doing completely NOTHING.
I guess today, I'll at least take the kids out to shop for the birthday party this weekend. They need to get the birthday girl a present, so we can do that. I just have to keep them focused on shopping for someone else rather than themselves. HA! Just kidding... kind of.
Another part of me says I can sleep... I haven't done much of that, lately. Got a whole 2 1/2 hours last night/ this morning. I am pretty worn out, and yet I'm not.
I don't know... I'm sure I'll figure something out. Worse case scenario, I just remind myself that I just have to get through today and then we have stuff planned for the weekend. That makes me feel better. Then next week, I have doctor appointments and stuff I need to do, plus I get to go back and work in my classroom.
Oh well... have a great Thursday, everyone!!
