Summer... break?

Friday, June 15, 2012

I work for the school district. I love my job. I work hard 5 days a week. I am off nights, week ends, and holidays. And now school is out for the summer. Time to be a lady of leisure, time to relax, travel, catch up on reading and movies, and spending time with friends and family. Oh, and plenty of time to work on starting a workout routine. More time to cook healthier meals. And how 'bout those craft projects I have been waiting to have time to start? Yay!!!!

Well, that was a great dream... sorry I woke up...
School has been out for exactly 1 week. I have already made 2 trips to urgent care with my mom... I have been cleaning and organizing the house. Shopping for maternity clothes for one daughter and work clothes for the other. I will be tutoring a little girl with autism this summer and have already worked with her twice. And I can't seem to keep up with the dishes that multiply in the sink.

My schedule is going to be crazy busy. I go to a staff development training tomorrow for half a day and start ESY (Extended School Year), summer school on Monday with the kids I have just said "good bye" to for the summer.

So, here is how the next 6 weeks will be for me:
ESY: Monday - Friday 7:45 - 2:15
Tutoring: Monday - Wednesday 3:00 - 5:00
Lakeshore: Saturday 12:00 - 6:00 (or 11:00 - 5:00)
(and other hours as scheduled).
Women's Bible Study: Monday 6:30 - 8:00
Thursday: Walking Bible Study 6:30 - 8:00 OR boat with friends: 5:00 - 7:30
Oh, and I will be cat setting for a friend next week and dog setting for another friend for two weeks the beginning of August.

I am exhausted already... I think it's going to be a long summer. I am determined to exercise, eat healthy, and not get behind in housework this summer, too. I am going to need to make sure to start EVERY day in prayer...

I am not really complaining. Last summer right before summer started... I found myself unemployed and behind on my utility bills... by the grace of God I survived that season of my life. This summer, I have 3 jobs and a house that is $200 cheaper per month in rent... so I am better prepared going in to this summer. Last summer I was facing hernia surgery, this summer I am in good health... I am just feeling a little overwhelmed right now.

I am going to focus on the positive! I am going to count my blessings! I am going to enjoy my summer!!! Wish me luck, please!?!

    You go, Sandy - you busy girl! How fun and exciting to have come so far in a year! Sorry to hear about your mom. Prayers to her healing with whatever she has. And knowing that you want to keep an eye on exercise and eating right is the first step. Just add one change at a time and you'll soon make them habits. emoticon emoticon emoticon
