If you don’t know what “keel over” means, let me save you the wikipedia search.
It means: To collapse or fall into or as if into a faint.
Yeah, now you get it! I remember hearing my mom saying it when she was ready to fall out from exhaustion. Well, today was my first day back and even though it was a good day, that’s how I feel. It’s probably the combo of waking up around 5, going in at 7 (just to find a park-my job doesn’t even start until 9!), freezing rain, getting home around 2:30, eating super late lunch, now cooking dinner and the impending doom of homework time is upon me.
**Side vent: teachers don’t understand what it does to parents to have multiple children in multiple grades doing their respective homework and having to help them all. Yeesh!!**
Yeah, I want to keel over. But the rest of the day beckons. So what do you do when you feel this way? Chug caffeine? Sneak a sugary snack? Take a power nap? Say a little prayer? I think I may try the latter, but man, is anyone else feeling the need for a snuggly blanket and a hot chocolate?
