I was so excited for this year because everything wasn’t going to be new anymore. I knew the routines and I knew what to expect. Except EVERYTHING changed! For reasons I’m not entirely sure of, our wonderful schedules and routines that had been built and tested over many years were thrown into a jar with a bunch of nails and scratchy objects, shaken up, dumped out and proclaimed as official. Or something like that. It has made for a very grumbly work environment these past two weeks because adjusting is hard and the bags under my eyes are especially brooding and my voice is shot and my back hurts and AAAAHHHHH I JUST WANT TO YELL!! Yesterday someone asked me if I’d gotten caught in some kind of wind outside. No, I said. It’s just been a long day. Today I was called a zombie.
I’m trying my best not to be grumbly or yell loudly with lots of screams (because it scares Cooper). It is a challenge that is taking a lot of tea, a stack of Neil Gaiman books, extra snuggles from Cooper and (as soon as I get it fixed…) a lot of scooter rides because it’s hard to be grumbly while zipping along with the warm Texas wind in my face.
