Monday Maunder: A Change in Plans
Monday, Monday . . .
Mondays are always the hardest day of the week for me. When something unexpected arises, it only makes the beginning of the week harder. This week is one of the latter.
Late last week, I got a phone call from my mom that she needed to go in for a little surgery immediately. Unfortunately, we would have to travel 3-4 hours to get to this surgery and were unable to get scheduled for the surgery until early this morning. So, we changed up our schedules and hit the road yesterday. The consultation came first, confirming the surgery was needed immediately, and then the surgery took place. It was a brief out-patient surgery and overall, it went really well. I had expected to hit the road home this evening, but those plans changed too. So, we are staying one more night, seeing the doc tomorrow morning one more time, then hitting the road home.
Already the start of a crazy week!
My kids are also finally in their last week of school. That means that I am in my last week of work too until right before school starts for the fall. And, boy do I have so many plans for the summer! I cannot wait for it to kick-off, especially with the week starting off with this unexpected change in plans.
So, today I am writing to you from a state of mixed emotions . . . stress from this unexpected news and trip, yet thankfulness for the positive results . . . overwhelmed by all the events that are happening during this last week of school, but excited for the start of the summer. Just writing this makes me exhausted, so I think I'm going to lounge around and hit the sack early tonight. We will see if I even get much reading done.
What plans do you have for the week and/or the start of the summer?
