Day 4 - Sluggish

Thursday, September 02, 2010

Today was the first day without being with Emily all day and honestly I didnt think I was the kind of person to have separation anxiety, but what do you know I am, at least when it comes to my kid. I really didnt handle it well.
My eating was off as in I didnt eat at all today except a little bit at dinner, I walked for a little while, but only because being in the house made my tummy upset. I took a nap (I cant recall the last time I took a nap). Honestly I just felt really sluggish. I tried to do other things to pass the time, like read, watch a movie, but i just couldnt keep my mind in one place long enough.
Its weird when she started kindergarten it wasnt like this, but perhaps because she was only gone a couple hours, who knows.

Don't get me wrong Im not attached to my kids hip and she does plenty alone, like playdates and such, but something about her being gone all day almost everyday just made me feel yucky today.
When she got home from school she told me all about it and what she did, she said she really likes it, that made me happy for her, but I just kept thinking while I was sitting there how she is growing up so fast, sometimes it seems like I blink and another year has passed, but knowing that she is having a nice time and enjoying school makes me feel better.

It all just boils down to I Miss Her, plain and simple.. Tomorrow it will be better , Ill know she is having fun and enjoying her day and I will aim to do the same thing!!! Ill still miss her lots but its something I will get use to, because she will always be coming home at the end of the day. =)

Anyhow I hope you all had a great day and a even better tomorrow!!

    My oldest starts kindergarten next Friday. I am not home with him all day like my husband is so I know it will be harder on him then me. But it does make me sad to know that he is already at the point of going to school and being influenced by other kids and I don't know how to explain it. I just feel a little sad. It will be okay and just think once you aren't feeling sick in the tummy you will have tons more time to devote to SparkPeople and weight loss! You can do it! It will be okay! I hope that tomorrow is a better day for you. emoticon

    I can understand being heartsick. I had to send my son on the ferry then a bus and finally to school and then back. He seemed so far way. Luckily, I work at an elementary and was very busy getting to know all our new students and catching up with everyone!

    I know the feeling - I have been like this emoticon
    off and on since monday morning!

    Since my sister's youngest just started school, we agreed to get together for some fun once a week - it will give us something to look forward to and take our minds off of our little ones being away for a while - do you have a friend you could do the same with?
