It simply might be the Tuesday blues after a long holiday weekend. We spent Memorial Day weekend at the Seven Springs Mountain Resort. The trip was wonderful. Our group took several runs on the Alpine Slide, kayaking, paddle boats, bowling, swimming and climbed the rock wall. My daughter was awesome at the climbing wall. She was the only one from our group to reach the top of the wall and ring the bell.
This week, my evenings will be spent helping my daughter study for the fourth grade final exams. There will be two exams per day. The dreaded cumulative math exam is on Friday. Final exams….in grade school? She has been ready for summer break since the beginning of May. It is going to be difficult to keep her focused.
Lately, it seems like every time I pick up the phone, bad news is calling on the other end. I hesitate before I pick up the phone. I am relieved to hear the recorded message of a telemarketer or the politicians asking for a donation on the other end of the line.
It feels like it is going to be a rough week...I hope that I am wrong.
