So last I left off, I was in the midst of a small emotional breakdown. No biggie…
Mary’s last day was yesterday and I randomly burst into tears through out the day. Thankfully I had also started a Bootcamp class at the gym that morning, so I could blame the crying on the pain if anyone asked. Heaven forbid I look like a softie. The hardest part about yesterday was Scorch’s reaction. My poor, sweet, sensitive boy cried for about 20 minutes while saying goodbye to Mary and then again after she left. Thankfully my Mother-in-Law arrived as Mary was leaving, so that was a good distraction for him.
This morning, I went to Spin class and when I got home at 6:30 we had 1 hour and 10 minutes to get 3 adults and 2 kids ready for the first day of school. We were rocking this morning- everyone ate, the kids looked adorable, they were both super excited to go to school (the Bean kept asking me not to stay today, she wanted to be Big Girl!) and all was well. We had just finished tying the laces to Scorch’s brand new sneakers when my phone rang. It was a text message letting us know that the school was on a 2 hour delay due to flooding conditions. What the what? Within 15 minutes after that, schools were closed for the day.
Talk about anticlimactic, huh?
Thankfully my town didn’t get hit hard with the flooding but the town I grew up in and the surrounding areas did. The pictures of the water and the damage breaks my heart- it’s hard to fathom it all.
The Hubs has been down there all day helping to evacuate people- over 20,000 people have been forced from their homes and many have no idea what they’ll be coming home to. Please say a prayer for those hit hard by this.
