Stress and me
Monday, August 09, 2010
Getting my kids ready for a new school year has been very stressful this time around. I have 2 in High School, 1 in Junior High, and 3 in grade school. Meeting teachers, buying clothes, supplies, and getting everyone situated has worn me out. In addition it has been very hot here in the valley of the sun, and that drains me too. I am looking forward to the brief week and a half that I will have here at home alone, before I, myself, head back to nursing school.
Having ALONE time has been something I have desperately needed this summer, yet haven't been able to get here at home. And since my workouts are done at home...that is always a challenge. Usually I make it work. But, the last 2 weeks, with all this school preparation I find myself sinking into this lowly place of exhaustion and stress. In 2 days, on the 11th, the kids will all be in school. And I will finally have some peace. I will take that opportunity to do all that I need to do, to get back in this game! I need my Mojo back. I miss me! And I need to be fully engaged, because I have every intention of reaching my goal this year! YES!
