Counting the days until this weekend….

I work 7 days a week.  Some week days are 8-5 with Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8-8.  On Tuesday and Thursday you will find me in University classes finishing up (done in December!) my special education teaching credentials and working on a possible Masters (if I am not too burned out).  SOOOOOO many of my short days and evenings off seem to be taken with obligations out of my control… Parent Teacher conferences, IEP meetings and team meetings.  One of the late evening (Parent Teacher conferences) has provided me with a Friday off and by the grace of God, I will be not working my job at Continental airlines on Saturday and Sunday.  Just the idea of a three day weekend at home makes me giddy with all the possibilities of spending time with my girl.  Time together that both she and I are in desperate need of.

Autumn is in the air…. Cool evenings, hints of blazing colors in the mountains.  I will scoop up my two year old sweetie in my arms and make the most of this season and the natural beauty that surrounds us.

School is ridiculous in the workload, isn't it? And classes and airlines as well? You are one on the go mama. Do you sleep?! Yay for finishing up university in December!! Enjoy your special time together. Hugs from Ellie and me.
