Retaking Me

I'm a second grade teacher now. Yup. Me. Don't know who thought me teaching small people was a good idea but...okaaaaay.
I'm struggling. I have a lot of support - volunteers, donations, supportive and helpful colleagues and boss. Still struggling. Primary is so out of my depth.
I'm still single-momming it with the 10 year old 12 days out of every 14 while hubby work 150 miles away and stays down there most of the time. He's getting more burned out. I'm getting more burned ...

I'm getting more burned out. The hypothyroid (and connected stuffs) got far worse after the concussion a couple of years ago but, due to the nature of those symptoms, I didn't notice.
Struggling with the symptoms, the stress they cause, which makes the symptoms worse..

Somehow I've lost a little weight lately . I have no idea how.

Thank you for the comments on my I'm so Afraid blog... I have lost track of so many of the fires, I didn't know you were so close to one.. Only 3% contained...it must be fairly new. The tankers fly very low over my house nearly every day out of McClellan (I am in Carmichael).. My niece and other family are in Clearlake Oaks, Lower Lake and Spring Valley. 50 miles is 50 miles, but still too close for comfort. God bless you... AND CONGRATULATIONS on a new job (?) emoticon Drink your water don't waste it.

Thanks for the check in. I'm still moving forward, but it hasn't been easy lately. I need a few more hours in my day without having to cut them out of my sleep.

Thanks for your advice! I will try to incorporate a new cardio element. Drinking lots of water has helped in the past. I should really work on that too. It's nice to know that other people understand this stagnant step of the journey. I added you as a friend. emoticon
