I have not blogged in two weeks. I know, I know. I am a terrible, slacker of a blogger. But here is the thing: I have been overwhelmed lately with one crisis after another. Even if I had the time to blog, I could not have blogged about most of it for fear of offending someone or just saying too much. It has been stressful to say the least.
Have I mentioned that I am PTO President of my younger son's elementary school this year? Yeah. I loved being involved, but this has been an especially hard year. And it is only September! We have had one issue after another come up. I have lost a few pounds, but I think I stressed them off.
I knew going in that this year would be different. A new school opened up for this fall and about a third of our student body went there. Our numbers are different. Our demographics are a little different. Everything is a little different.
The principal of the school is a great guy. The kids love him. They think he is cool and it is a treat to get to spend time with "Mr. Lewis." He is very involved and very supportive of the PTO. He is a big part of why our school is the great school that it is.
The Lewis's live down the street from us. They are a cute couple with an adorable little blond-haired, blue-eyed, three-year-old boy. Three weeks ago that sweet little boy was diagnosed with leukemia. ALL to be specific. His long term prognosis is good, but he has a long road ahead of him. Mr. Lewis has not been at school since the diagnosis. All my PTO crises pale in comparison to this situation.
I am not sure where I was trying to go with this post, but understand that blogging is way down the line in my list of priorities right now.
