Dusting off my cape

I am having of the few days in the last week where I once again feel like I am on top of what is happening in my life.  I hate being a react parent - I like to be on top of my game and ahead of the chaos (granted, while I'm saying this I have a mountain of clothes to fold, but that is just turning into my norm).

I have prepped what I am going to teach my juniors for the rest of this week and next, have a whole stack of papers that I need to grade, and a story that is rattling around in my brain so much that it has infiltrated my dreams and needs to be written, but I know what I am cooking for dinner tonight, am prepped fully to teach tomorrow and am excited about what is happening with creative writing.  

Next week is homecoming, I'm going to get my visiting teaching done Tuesday night, have a teacher skit for Thursday and will be getting a presentation on a neighborhood that Enoch and I are considering for our home in the next 12 months or so.  Enoch has had lots of work this week, Will has earned 100% on his last two spelling tests, soccer will be over this week, I'm playing a musical number with my mom on Sunday and may even have time to keep reading the Invisible Man (Elison not Wells).  

Granted, to some this may seem like semi-organized chaos, but I'm feeling really good about it. 

Watch out world, I'm no longer stressed and ready to conquer.

I'd take semi-organized chaos any day of the week! It is SUCH a good feeling!

Don't you know you're not supposed to say things like that out loud? You'll jinx it and something huge or horrible will happen!:) Glad your feeling on track!
