Shaking Nerves...and Good Times
Wednesday, March 02, 2011
I'm sure you might have seen from my updated status that my husband is up for a job that is perfect for him. He was laid off 2 years ago, so this could mean more to us than anything right now. My nerves are frazzled waiting for his 10:30am interview and the wait after that to see if he gets hired. We are having a 39th Birthday Party for him Saturday, so it would be nice to be able to celebrate a new job too. Fingers, toes and eyes are crossed over here.
It's been a crazy week. I've had a few meetings with my daughter's Kindergarten teacher. She is having a bit of trouble. Scholastically she is close to the top of the class. Emotionally, she is not on par with the other kids. She is having trouble controlling her emotions and "impulses". This has left me beating myself up trying to figure out how I have failed as a mother. Of course, I know I can't do that to myself, but if you are a mother, I'm sure you understand how I feel. We have an appointment with her pediatrician on Tuesday for her annual physical and to discuss some of the issues going on. I am not going to let my daughter be labelled and, at this time, if drugs are suggested, I am not ready to go that way. ugh...nerves...stomach is in knots.
I am starting her in gymnastics this evening. I am hoping the structure and fun of it helps. Not to mention, I am so looking forward to it! I did gymnastics for years as a kid. Good Times.
So where does this leave me? Well, I kicked a$$ on the treadmill yesterday...cranking it up to 7.0- which I had never done before! What a fantastic stress reliever!! WooHoo! It feels good to be proud of myself. I DESERVE that.
Oh- and a side note...my boss and co-worker were at the gym while I was there and apparently they did not recognize me from behind while I was on the treadmill. Considering I work for a company of 23 employees (with only 3 women) I am taking this as a gigantic compliment!
Well, SparkFriends- here's to a great Wednesday! Keep the positive vibes and prayers coming. This job would be a new start for my family. (and keep my husband's cabin fever at bay so he doesn't turn into to Jack from "The Shining") HAHAHA!
