My family came back from a 2 week Florida vacation on Sunday. We spent the time w/ my parents and it was wonderful. It's always really hard to leave them b/c we are so close. Also they are in their late 70's and even though they are in amazing mental and physical condition I worry about how long I will have left w/ them. Of course I cried on the way to the airport b/c I missed them already. Monday we came home and spent Labor Day w/ friends to mark the end of summer and the beginning of a new school year. It was hard to realize the temperatures were dropping and it getting darker earlier. Today, my twins start the 4th grade. This is a new school for them for 4th, 5th and 6th grade and I just can't believe how the time has flown. I remember vividly, crying during their kindergarten orientation, for Gods sake! I took them to the school yesterday to see where their classrooms were and luckily their teachers were there so they could meet them, so they are feeling better about the transition. I just feel like crying this morning over everything!! I am such a baby! It also doesn't help that it is that time of the month. My kids were actually consoling me b/c I was tearing up over how old they are. God, I'm pathetic. I am also really fat and bloated right now b/c all we did was eat and drink the whole 2 weeks we were away. I am going to the gym this morning to start back on my routine of spinning 5-6 days a week and weight training but I really just want to go under my covers and cry. Sorry, for such a drag of a post but I just needed to express myself.
