I've made it to Day 20 before the "I have nothing to say" post!
I could tell you how my daughter's little hands felt like fire during the night and I knew before taking her temperature that she had a fever. I could tell you how sad I was she had to miss her favorite Arts and Crafts Club again, how guilty I felt to ask my mom to come stay with her all day when she hasn't been feeling great herself.
I could tell you how a tweet I read before 7am annoyed me- made me feel guilty for not reading more children's books and annoyed that the educator tweeting made it sound like it was easy to find the time if you just don't watch Netflix or stop surfing social media. As if I'm sitting around eating bon bons and consuming media instead of trying to stay afloat as both mom and teacher. I'm sure it wasn't what was intended, but it was the message I received and it shaded my morning before even arriving at work.
I could tell you how I made my son's First Holy Communion banner with my mom's help. How I just wanted to cross it off the to-do list of endless responsibilities.
I could tell you that my heart is happy that it the first day of Spring, that I'm working towards light and love and gratitude. I could tell you that I have so much work to get done since it's report card time and I'm not sure how I'll muster the energy tonight to work on it.
I could tell you all of that, but I have nothing to say.
