I'm exhausted. JY woke up twice last night. Not a usual occurrence for her. Took her a long time to calm down. And this morning I had to get up at 5 to help JT get out the door in time for his first day of the actual, real academy. For JT, today is the first day of "Camp Snoopy," because the recruits will be running around like crazy, confused kids and getting reprimands from every direction. More on that in my next post.
Whenever I need to go to a "happy place" in my mind, I will go to Disneyland. I got to go there this weekend with one of my girl friends. We had such a lovely time. My mom watched the baby for me while she also finished altering JT's uniform. I got to go on rides, buy cute Disney things for the baby, eat yummy food, and enjoy some grownup intellectual conversation with my friend while waiting in lines. It was great to spend some time with her (last time I saw her was 2 years ago!) but it was especially great to get a day for me. A day where I didn't have any chores to do or schoolwork to worry about or meals to cook or crying baby forcing me to drop everything else. It was a day to enjoy being an adult pretending to be a kid. :)
And it's gonna have to last me a little while.
