High School Musical 3

Krista and I took our older children to see HSM3 today. The movie was really sweet. The kids were so well behaved! I am especially proud of Dane. He made it through the whole movie! He started to stir the last 15 minutes so he sat on my lap for the ending.

I had to go to work after the movie, and didn't get home until 8pm. Yuck. Not much else to report today.

Today is the day...

I started taking Lexapro today. It didn't seem to have much affect until after lunch. Now I just feel kinda zombified. I'm not sure that I like this. I've been told to give things a few weeks to level out. I haven't felt like doing anything on cared much about anything tonight. It's a bizaar feeling.

We are going to High School Musical 3 tomorrow. The kids are very excited. I'm greatful to have the opportunity to take them!

Hopefully I sleep well tonight. I've had such a hard time sleeping at night lately. Maybe if nothing else this groggy feeling will allow me to sleep!

I've not lost my mind after all!

I took a visit at the Dr. today to have her check out my mental health. I haven't been feeling so hot lately. Mostly just tired, sad, and short of patience. As it turns out I am suffering from a very serious condition called Momitus.

Apparently a Mother of four cannot be Supermom. She can't do it all after all. Glad to know I've been fighting against the odds all of this time.

On a more serious note I have decided upon the advice of my Dr. to start taking Lexapro for the next 6 months. I hope it doesn't make me gain weight after 6 months of losing it!

I am not going to start taking the pill until tomorrow. Even though I'd like to take it right now after the day I've had, I think starting fresh in the morning is the best bet. Plus, this forces me to eat breakfast at a decent hour.

So, what do I hope to get out of this magic little pill? I hope to stop breaking my back and sweating the small stuff. That's it. I'd just like being 5 minutes late or forgetting a permission slip to not be the end of the world.

The next few days should be very interesting!

It has become painstakingly clear to me that I have been a slacker mom for the past 9 weeks. My children are above the line in their education, but they could be straight A students. All I have to do is hold them accountable. Accountability. This is something I am personally horrible at in life.

I have to find a way to force myself to hold them accountable in a more consistent manner.

Dane did well while meeting and/or exceeding all expectations. Nadine did wonderfully of course, however she needs to brush up on Times facts and start reading at a higher lexile range-despite the fact she is already 300 points above the expected level.

Andrew is a different story. While he had some excellent test and quiz scores, his homework scores-or lack there of, Stink! Pee-yewwww! His reading has dropped significantly too. It's not a matter of inability, it;s a matter of motivation.
