Project 365 {week 10}

This week was brutal.

I blame the state testing that I had to proctor at work.

It threw the whole “normal” of the day off.

And it made me super tired. It’s the same kind of fatigue you get from driving for HOURS.

Anyway…this is what the week looked like…

March 2: Shrove Sunday = pancake brunch at church. YUM!

March 4: I proctored the ACT and was exhausted. This guy wanted to read books. We read books.

March 5: Another day of testing means I'm too exhausted to care that I am wearing head to toe pink.

March 6: Last day of testing at school. And two boys doing puzzles together. Those things are not related.

March 7: Full work day, hair appointment, and dinner with a friend means I got home to this thoughtful guy after the boys were in bed.

It didn’t look busy, but somehow it was.

I almost died of exhaustion.

Almost.

But we didn’t forget about March is Reading Month!!

  1. I love the head to toe pink.
    We’ve had Nancy Tillman’s books on heavy rotation – the little one love them.

  2. Well, I read “The Fault in Our Stars” on Saturday. Please to be preparing yourself. I cried three times by the time I got to page 50. I cried for the ENTIRE last hour of reading the book. I had to put it down a couple of times to sob. It’s a great book though. Highly recommend.

  3. I loved Hippos Go Berzerk. I may have read that one ad nauseum even though my kids were indifferent.

    I’m reading The Sun Also Rises. The kids? Stuff for school – a book about Hawaii for the ten-year-old, and the twelve-year-old? His text messages, mostly. 🙂
