As I am recovering from my flu, this saying pops into my head. I am a teacher. I am a mom. I am a wife. Flu! Smu!
As a teacher, every day I have to write sub plans. I also think about how the class is doing with the substitute. Are they behaving? Are they getting work done? As the complexities of the curriculum increases, leaving quality sub plans is really difficult. It hard for the sub to understand, nevermind execute. I tend to leave nothing to hard. I always say that teacher is like rocket science. Oh and did I mention that report cards are due next week.
As a wife, I have to tend to my husband. DO NOT JUDGE! Coincidently, my husband threw his back out on Saturday afternoon. For most of the weekend, he could barely move. That means all the basic chores went undone. Could I just leave them? Is that really a question? The laundry is not going to fold itself.
As a mother, I can not sleep in. My kids, 15 and 17, do not wake up with their alarms. My son has one that shakes his bed. Nothing works. So that means I have to wake up and get them going. See above as to why my husband can’t do it. While I am up, I make breakfast and cleanup the kitchen. Why? Because I am up.
I know…I know…my kids really have to step up!! And they do when we ask. But that’s a blog for another day!
Now I am back to bed with the morning talk shows and going to try to get some rest.
