I really don’t like to be wrong. I really don’t. It’s part of my personality. It has it’s upsides and downsides. I was so upset because my principal implied that I wasn’t going to be present for my finals. Guess what? I wasn’t present for my finals. As I was going to bed last night, I got a text from my son’s girlfriend. “He really needs you.” I packed up my other 2 kids and got into the van. What else could I do? It’s certainly less than ideal but it is what it is. I am confident that I made the right decision to go but it doesn’t mean it was an easy decision. It was absolutely not how I envisioned my last day at work. I missed the opportunity to say goodbye to many wonderful students. As much as I hate goodbyes, I also hate leaving things unsaid. Today was hard. Last night was hard. The past 2.5 months have been hard. Once we move the rest of our belongings, I’m ready for less hard. As much as my 16 year old doesn’t want to need his mom, he needs his mom right now. I’m thankful to be able to be there now. I wasn’t sure when I would be able to fit in a run today but I made it to the gym with my husband this evening for an easy mile on the hamster wheel. I love that I have running to ground me. My streak forces me to carve out a small chunk of time for myself in the most challenging days. I wouldn’t have even considered a run today if I didn’t have my streak. It was just what I needed to center myself and remember the bigger picture. It was an ok run at the end of a really rough week but it was enough.
