It has been an interesting year so far…this 2014. I don’t really think I mean to complain. It’s not that. It’s just that we really haven’t had a chance to get into a routine yet and it’s starting to mess with me. I am a routine junkie and my kids tend to be the same way. Due to various holidays, sicknesses and bad weather watches, I don’t think we have had one normal school-week yet this year.
While I built in a certain amount of time into my schedule for these types of things, the well is about to run dry. I need these kids to be in school. THEY need it. And here we are on a Tuesday night after one successful school day on Monday with today cancelled, tomorrow likely and Thursday possibly biting the dust too.
I might crack.
They never go on Friday anyway and I am freaking the freak out that we will be out another (almost) whole week. Before you start in with the celebrating my kids and enjoying the time business, let me tell you something. I have been enjoying my kids. SINCE DECEMBER. They are only in school 3 or 4 days a week depending on the child and for 3 hours at that. It is barely enough time to get some work done and drink a bit of coffee but you know what it is? My sanity.
So, I am begging for a normal week. BEGGING.
Yes, let’s enjoy the snow that is supposed to fall overnight. Let’s drink hot cocoa and watch movies and make brownies. But I can only take so much more of this. I am only one woman. And this mama needs some space, y’all.
Who’s ready for spring?
