Today was such a stressful day, the culmination of a couple months of anxiety over our yearly evaluations at work. Yes I still work with TSA. SHUT UP. Anyhoo, in Denver it was so busy a day didn't go by when one of us didn't do a dozen bag checks or pat downs before lunch. Here in the sticks we're lucky to have one pat down per week, if that. Not that I'm complaining - just doesn't make for much practice.
Amanda helped me practice the last couple of days, and both the kids cheered for me as I left for work, excitedly saying "You can do it Mom, you'll do GREAT!!" I was so happy to report to them that I passed everything with flying colors, and Amanda's reply was that she knew I'd do just fine. Thank gawd for my kids 'cause they have a way of believing in me when I can't muster the confidence to do it myself.
Add to that an extra couple hours at the end of the work day because of a delayed flight and you have one tired mama - thankfully today is my Friday, and it couldn't have come at a better time. The kids are off this week for spring break which means the three of us will have two full days together, a first since last summer. I'm seriously deliriously happy about this and we may very well spend the entire day in bed watching movies.
I can't think of a better way to spend my two days off...
