Starting to Feel "Life" Creeping In

Monday, August 13, 2012

Next week, my 2nd grader starts back to school. Already, I'm getting invites to help people with this and that, and go to meetings for Girl Scouts and things. I just signed up for Curves and wondered how I was going to make that fit into my schedule, along with doing the 5K your way and 28 day bootcamp challenges here on Sparkpeople.

I am definitely going to have to practice flexing my "no" muscles going forward if I'm going to be successful in taking care of me.

My 4 year old starts preschool the first week in September; she'll be going 3 days a week, from 12:30 - 2:30. That leaves me with the 2 year old. I'm trying to find some fun thing we can do together instead of boring/dumb errands or rushing back to do housework while she sits and watches Sesame Street. I'll have to check the library's story times and see about fun possibilities at the rec center.

Very glad I gave up leadership of my oldest daughter's Girl Scout Troop. I'm still co-leader, but as such, it will be much easier to control my level of involvement.

    It is amazing how busy schedules get once school starts up. No is a necessary word at times. I like Judyhelp's idea to use the time for a walk with your 2 year old, also maybe a local pool offers a mom and tot water lesson.

    Flexing that "no" muscle will be a good thing. It will show that YOU are in control of your time and things that directly impact you. ;)
