Who Me? Have I been missing? I guess I have.
I've been around. Stressed. Overwhelmed. Like we all probably feel this time of year.
Much of August is spent quietly looking forward to September. The kids go back to school. Those of us who like a routine get our routine back. By the end of the summer life just seems to have fallen apart a little. And this year, like many others has whacked me in the face.
School came too fast (even though I longer for it a little), I miss our lazy days (even though they drove me crazy), I miss my kids (even though they drove me more crazy) and the routine is not easy at first (if ever).
So, yes... I sound like I am having a Bi-Polar moment. I want it all but don't want any of it at the same time. Maybe it's because my kids have official driven me to the loony bin. Maybe it's because I am not getting enough sleep. Maybe it's because being overwhelmed and a little depressed is a part of motherhood (sometimes). I'm not sure.
I am just hoping the next couple of weeks find me more organized, better rested and my kids more adjusted to the new routine. Only one way to find out.
