I've missed y'all SO much! Sorry I fell off the face of the earth right after Readathon. Here's the rundown:
I had my first iron infusion (of a series of five) on Monday. I didn't have much in the way of side effects, but I did go home afterward and sleep for four hours. Not sure if that was infusion-related or part of the Readathon hangover. I had some unsavory side effects that caught up with me later in the week, but I'm better prepared to deal with those in the next four weeks. Silver lining.
David was out of town this week, so I was single parenting. Normally that's not a big deal, but I was wrangling with some major exhaustion all week. That could be iron-related or it could be related to the storm of work shit that made me want to quit this week. Sadly, nothing new there.
Chuck drove out late in the week for a glowing parent-teacher conference. Those of you who follow me on Twitter and Facebook will probably remember that I've had hell with Greyson's pre-school this semester. Now that we're all on the same page and his teacher is talking to me rather than bargaining with him, it seems his issues have resolved. Freaking surprise. Mom wins.
We also got Greyson registered for kindergarten which makes me teary just thinking about it. Two of the three kindergarten teachers were teaching when I was in kindergarten. It makes me smile that I, or my mom, will know Greyson is in trouble before Greyson knows he's in trouble. The chorus of "I know your grandma," started as soon as we walked in the door. For the record, my mom is City Secretary and knows everyone. That's besides the fact that my family has been rooted here for a couple of generations. Small towns rock when you're parenting.
After spending all of yesterday in bed sleeping and watching movies, because I haven't had a day like that in months, I spent this morning cleaning the house, and now I'm hunkered down to grade the final assignments for my online classes. So ready to be done. Bring on the summer.
Alas, no reading this week. Also, no writing fun stuff like blogs or Book Riot or Panels pieces. If I can power through these last few days I'm home free and can't wait to resume a normal, bookish schedule.
How are YOU?
