Oh my goodness! Where did September go? It seems just yesterday that I was shopping for school supplies and now it’s October 1st!!!
So what has has happened for the past month?
My school has a new administrator and a new schedule with shorter class periods. So the days literally fly by as I attempt to break projects into shorter steps and constantly keep one eye on the clock trying to not run over the time. For a few weeks, I felt like there should be a revolving door on my classroom. I’m getting adjusted and I do like see my classes every third day. I feel like we are accomplishing more.
And we’ve had Meet n’ Greet nights for everyone’s schools. This means an evening away from home, away from trying to establish new routines now that summer is over. Luckily, my latest night was 8:30, but my kids are usually asleep between 7:30 and 8:00 and I hate to miss reading bedtime stories and cuddling with them. That is our special time.
And weekends are spent doing the laundry, cleaning our home, running to the supermarket, going to birthday parties, trying to plan out the week for home and work, and still do my own artwork. Whew! No wonder I showed up to work the other day wearing my slippers….
And yet, amazingly (and this may be a one-time phenomenon), the other morning, I turned around and didn’t know what to do with myself. Everyone had been fed, dressed, and brushed, lunches and homework packed and I found myself with an extra half hour before I had to leave for work. After a few moments of wondering what I had forgotten to do, I sat down and actually ate breakfast.
Could it be that I am finally getting my life organized? We shall see…
