It is that happy but dreaded time of the year. The countdown to back to school is upon us. In just over a week my kids are headed back to school. On one hand I am so excited that they are going back. They have lounged around all summer, slept in and mastered the art of doing nothing! While they had activities every night the days were very laid back. Working from home I didn't mind that they kind of hung out and did nothing but now they are making me nuts! They are on each others nerves and just loud and really just giving me a headache. So in that perspective, yes, school can not come soon enough. Sometimes kids just need a routine and at this point I think they need to get to it. On the flip side, back to school means chaos for me. It means getting up at 6 am (no more sleeping in - whah), driving the 25 minutes to school and then back home to work everyday, twice a day. It means the bar chart of after school activities, times, locations and again more driving. It means my work day is back to being interrupted. It means I have to be organized and laundry has to get done. Dinners have to be timed just right to get to the next activity. And so mom becomes more scheduled too.
And once again it means I am a little depressed that summer came and went and I didn't get to do anything fun and exciting with the girls. My busy time just ended and of course now they go back to school. I always say that I am going to make time to do more during the summer and here another summer flew right by. The one thing I can say is I got to spend countless hours day in and day out with the girls and if not anything we laughed a lot!
So with a little slack in my walk we prepare for the venture of a new school year. Uniforms are ordered, supplies are bought, the checkbook is ready for the countless things you need to purchase and tuition is already getting paid. Yup back to school we go.
