Do you ever feel like your life is just one, big revolving door? Somedays, I feel like I am on a wheel and I keep going around in circles. Life is always busy, even when it isn't a busy day, we are forever busy.
The next few weeks are going to be so busy for us, as a family, that I am going to be wondering if I am coming or going. The school year is coming to a close and with that, comes a lot of end of the year activities for the kids. We have a fair, chorus concert, fun days, field trips and the end of running club. There are only 14 days of school left so there is a light at the end of the tunnel but then it opens up to wide open days where there are no plans for the kids.
I usually think that it makes life so much easier when they don't have school but I'm not sure that is the case when I am working. I could continue to work in the afternoon into the evening but I would love to work late morning to late afternoon instead. There are two days a week where I will be working from 8:30am until 5-6pm so those days will be long days for me. I will probably see if the kids can go to hang out somewhere with someone so that they are not home alone all day when I start work at 10:00am. The days that I work at the gym, the kids can go there with me and those days they will be home alone for a very short time until Chuck gets home from work.
The juggling is getting old and I foresee that in the fall I am going to talk about how it will be easier when the kids go back to school but for now, I am looking forward to less of a schedule with the end of school, after school activities, evening activities and bus drop offs.
Eventually, the wheel will seem less like a wheel and more like a well-oiled machine.
Yesterday, for Mother's Day, Jada wrote in her card that, "You are Superwoman, even when things get crazy you still manage to not freak out." Oh, if only she knew. Her card made me cry, like I had to rush into the bathroom so they all wouldn't see me bawling.
I am trying to remain stress free lately and just go with the flow of life. There are so many things that I cannot change so why fight it, right? I'm riding the wheel, for now.
