In the midst of my crazy life and efforts to balance everything I do… I spent the majority of my day with my kids. Even though I went into work this morning… I brought the kids. I wanted to be around them as much as I could.
This weekend has been overwhelming. Our students graduated yesterday… It was my birthday. We tried to celebrate the students and my birthday at the same time. Today was our last major day of flood coverage… I went in to take care of the newsroom this morning. It’s Mother’s Day. It was a strange Mother’s Day. Cam and Jordan made cards at school… But it never felt like a Mother’s Day.
My Mom basically hung up on me today when I had the kids call to wish her happy mother’s day. We were lucky enough to enjoy mother’s day with her last year. I didn’t send a card. I didn’t have the kids do an art project. I screwed up.
I didn’t win at anything today. At least I got a couple of pictures with the kids.
