I did not have one of the longest days of my life last Monday. I did not struggle to stay focused once back to work. I am the teacher. I am always focused.
I did not spend three days this week driving up and down the interstate for Will's All-Star Basketball games. I did not EVER wonder what in the world I was thinking when I said, "Sure, he'd be honored to be on the team!" I live to cart my kids around town.
I did not, at the championship game, yell at the referee. I do not do that kind of thing. I am a calm spectator at sporting events. I would never, while still video taping the game, jump up and tell the referee he is awful (he was)...I am so much more in control than that!
While reading the rules for the state All-Star tournament (because, yes, oh joy, we made it to that!) and specifically the part that says, "No negative comments will be allowed by the fans directed at the teams, coaches or officials. Fans participating in this kind of activity will be removed from the venue." Will did not say, "Mom....you coulda been kicked out tonight." That is not me, I am a MUCH better role model than that!
I KNOW that all this not me stuff today has shocked you to your core...I apologize for bursting your bubble about me...but remember...it was NOT really me! :)
What have you not been doing? I promise...this is good therapy and will save you tons of money on a counselor!
