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!?!
