Year 2 Day 48: His & Hers Dinners
Here are the sandwiches I made for Matt and myself for tomorrow -- YES, I label them. Each night I make us each a chicken sandwich to take to work in the morning so I won't have to rush around last minute. I try to write something different each time as well -- usually a lovey message to hubby to help get him through the day. Today's messages were "Girls Rule!" and "Boys Drool!" Mature. I know. But I see it as just another way to use my coloured Sharpie markers (as if I NEED an excuse).
I didn't have any calls again for work today, so my sandwich remained in the fridge until I resurrected it to munch on during Supernanny. However, by 3pm or so I had received a call from the agency for some work in a Year 6 class at the school in Droitwich for tomorrow.
DING! Don't mind if I do.
I also managed to get in nearly a mile and a half walking when I set out on foot to the Brierley Hill post office and then to the Property Shop to drop off our landlords' mail (since they have yet to get it re-directed). I thought at first the walking would feel nice, with fresh air and all...but that was all well and good until the shin splints set in. I attribute that largely to the increasing volume of the bump. I also have a distinct, yet undoubtedly sexy, 'duck-like' waddle now and have even less speed than before (which I believe Matt would calibrate at 'Tortoise' on a scale of Tortoise to Hare.) Let's hope I manage to make it comfortably around the school with ease tomorrow.
As much as I don't want to, I may have to play the maternity card after this week. The end is only getting closer and try as I might, mobility is certainly NOT getting any easier.
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
