I did the responsible thing. It was a hard decision but it had to be made. I complain/joke about being poor a lot and an opportunity came to make some good money and I knew I had to take it. Yes, spending 11 hours a day for a week and a half in a car with 15 year olds learning how to drive was not what I had in mind when I pictured my summer break but……..
for the first time in months I did something adult-like and decided I should take the offer.
That doesn’t mean I don’t make my drivers ed kids stop every 1.5 hours for either an ice-cold lemonade, ice cream cone or to walk around a park to stretch. Just close your eyes and imagine being a drivers ed teacher……..now you know why I eat so much ice cream.
When I got home I decided I was going to take advantage of the next four hours and make it blissfull.
Got in pajamas before even taking my shoes off. It was awkward and it took way more time than if I had just taken my shoes off in the first place.
Didn’t cook and forced billy to Wendy’s for my favorite salad. Obviously brushing my hair was out of the question.
Watched 2 episodes of ‘Make it or Break it.’ It is completely normal for a 25 year old to watch a teenage drama full of cat-fights/break-ups and get all choked up when one of them falls off the beam or messes up on their floor routine.
Stared at the wall. You know you do that too when you are extra exhausted.
Ate 3 cookies that I made on Saturday……recipe HERE.
How do you recover from a long day at work/home with the kids/busy day at school?
