Last weekend we headed to Clemson for the Clemson/UGA game. This was lots of fun spending time with some friends we hadn't seen in a while.
Having the long weekend made me feel a lot better after a crazy first full week. Then, I woke up on Tuesday morning to head to work and my car wouldn't start. If you're a teacher you know this is a moment of shear panic. Not only was I worried about what was wrong with it but I was worried about who would greet my 5th graders at the door. Luckily, my husband came to the rescue and lent me his car for the day until I had time to call AAA that evening.
In other news, the return of the Pumpkin Spice Latte has really made my life lately. Especially as it is necessary for me to drink abut 15 cups of coffee during the work week to make it through the beginning of the year chaos.
I think this little guy has almost forgotten who I am. When I'm at home he won't leave my side. He even follows me into the bathroom. I think he's afraid every time I leave the room I'll disappear for 12 hours. Which makes sense since that happens five days every week. We've been trying to give him extra snuggles and take him on lots of long walks.
You know the expression, "when it rains, it pours?" I feel like its been pouring lately a lot in terms of customer service issues - problems with our apartment, problems getting Best Buy's Geek Squad to fix our brand new dryer, problems with my car, and of course the icing on the cake was when my third Jack Rogers broke the other day! I'm feeling the need for a vacation. Or at least a spa weekend.
Hopefully I'll be more present this week with reading your blogs and keeping up with my own. I'm still here - everything is just crazy and hectic right now. Hopefully things are a lot calmer where you are. Happy Monday, friends.
