Back to School || My Survival Story

I did it!  I survived my first week back to my "typical" work week with kids.  All I can say is, thank the good Lord ABOVE I only work the first three days of the week!  Conley isn't sleeping, we are in the middle of searching for a house/selling our house, our department is preparing for an audit at the end of September, & Cam has been sick this week yet still wants to play super heroes 24 hours a day ESPECIALLY the moment I walk in the door.

"Come on mom!  Let's go save the day!"  
"Can we go save the day now, mom?"

So.  Stinking.  Precious.
But absolutely annoying at the same time:)  LOL
I love that big brother so.  

  The PTA (or whatever they identify themselves as these days) made "chill pills" for all staff this week...aka skittles.  Though I've been trying to avoid sugar & processed foods lately, I completely scarfed down my jar this evening after having to dive into editing, no REediting, IEP's.  Yep.  That's right folks.  I guess you could say this week had me "ODing" on chill pills?
The only way to end this week & celebrate this joyous weekend (Wednesday is my Friday) occasion is to cuddle up & watch my old VHS of Meg Ryan talking about a bouquet of freshly sharpened pencils in "You've Got Mail."  Maybe that along with my pumpkin candle & some popcorn will make me feel a little better about summer being over, beginning a new school year, & scarfing down that jar of skittles?  Couldn't hurt!  
I can't end this post without taking the time to thank as well as contribute my survival of this week to Jesus, large teas, & my new Boy Mama mug:)
Hehe.  But for real about Jesus...
 I couldn't have made it without constant prayers with Him!
How has the first week back (give or take for some of you!)  been for you guys?
