Lu has decided that she doesn't like to go play with friends. She wants to be with me, and she wants to be home.
This week I didn't sub at all. I had a couple days scheduled but she has been super upset and behaving naughty (which isn't like her), and we had a house showing that we knew about for a couple days before it actually happened so I saw the corners that needed dusting and the window that had a smudged sill and....
so I cancelled and she stayed home with me. We played candyland, and play dough, and read books at home and at the library. Today we made sugar cookies. We played outside and inside and cleaned stuff up. It was a pleasant week.
Next week I have two days that I need to leave her, one to sub and one to go on a field trip with H. I hope it goes well. I don't want her to be sad and have been having some guilty feelings about working, albeit I really don't work very much.
Tonight I am going out for a girls night. I've been looking forward to it since Monday. The only bummer is my good friend is also have a small birthday dinner and I can't go. I really wanted to do both and felt super torn. In the end I decided that since I told Ingrid I'd go first I wouldn't swap. The truth was no matter which I had chosen I would have felt bad about missing the other. ... this on the heels of no girls nights out in months!
