Well, I’m proud to say that here we are, three weeks into the school year and my children are FINALLY ready for the new school year. Ha!
This was a spectacularly manic summer, starting with the last month of school and culminating with me spending the last three days trying to catch up on all the things I neglected over summer. The biggest thing I’ve neglected is myself, which seems pretty stupid in hindsight. I finally got into the dentist after rescheduling 6 times due to unexpected meetings or travel. I finally renewed my thyroid meds after forgetting 9000 times to fast so I could take my blood tests so I could get my prescription renewed. I even started taking some B-Vitamins, because they are supposed to help the body process stress or something. I had lost my fitbit, and stopped walking (much) because why bother if there are no blinking lights? I kid. The blinking lights aren’t that big of a motivator. My treadmill desk has been underused.
I keep wanting to finish this post on a triumphant note, about how I’m turning it all around, and I’m taking the time for me, blah blah blah. I’m not. Maybe next week. For now? I’m going to blast through this four-day work week like a boss, and feel triumphant about the fact that my kids actually have clean laundry.
