If we were having coffee I would tell you that I am feeling very tired, have been for a while now. I hope you’ll forgive me if I am a little quieter than usual. I promise I am excited to see you, I’m just in desperate need of a good nights sleep.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that while the days are growing shorter and the local school districts are back in session this week summer does not feel like it is coming to an end. It’s over 90 degrees every afternoon and well into every evening. I love summer but the heat is starting to drive me a little batty.
I notice I am short tempered and exhausted much of the time and I have begun to question why I ever thought summer was the best season.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that this week was a pretty, well, boring. I worked a lot. We were running around with our heads cut off busy preparing for the start of the school year coming up this week. We had training to do, new buses to check, and equipment needed handing out. Our district is making some big, big changes and this has probably been the hardest, most chaotic, beginning to a school year.
I’m doing my best to just keep my head down and just get through it.
If we were having coffee I would motion for you to lean in close. I would whisper to you that something very big and very important did happen this week but I can’t tell you about it yet. It’s not that I don’t trust you it’s just that until there has been a formal announcement I can’t tell anyone. Next week I will though I promise!
If we were having I would tell you that the most exciting day this week was probably yesterday. We took My girlfriends little brother out to lunch and an afternoon of shopping. We are trying to spend more time with him now that he’s becoming a teenager and is dealing with all the difficulty surrounding that. He often seems sad and frustrated and I think some regular time out with us to just relax and not worry about anything will be good for him.
Plus he’s just fun to be around, for a fourteen year old anyway :)
After that we went to a free showing of Night of the Living Dead, the 1968 version. Our new favorite movie theater, the Alamo Drafthouse, was playing it. We got there a couple hours early to make sure we got tickets so we killed some time by doing some more shopping and grabbing some dinner and some Starbucks for a pick me up. Then we just walked and talked and it was like we were teenagers again, dream out loud together about our perfect future.
Then it was zombie time! I hadn’t seen the movie, let alone this version and it was amazing! Might write a quick review of it for you later this week.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that after not having seen my family in a few weekends we are finally back to doing family day. Our schedules conflict so much and somebody is always sick or dealing with some kind of emergency and we end up going weeks without seeing each other. We do text a lot though and we interact on Facebook but it’s not the same. I miss seeing their faces.
I had better get going so I can get ready to head out and see them. I appreciate you stopping by to catch up and I hope your week was a good one. I’d like to hear about it either way in the comments :)
