Ho.Ly. Moly!

Tomorrow is the last day of school this week for my little preschool students and all I can say is...WOW, I AM EXHUSTED! I always forget how incredibly demanding the beginning of the year is; the children are so young and most have never been in school or a group setting before and they have no idea how to get what they need without hitting, screaming, pushing, crying, etc. Everybody needs everything RIGHT NOW and no one knows how to wait yet. Whew. Today was the first day I had time to eat lunch or even drink water during the day.

My poor fitness tracker is suffering this week. I have managed to walk a bit, but not much else. The whole getting up early to exercise idea is not working out for me right now. Maybe I will try it again in a couple of weeks, when I am not in such desperate need for sleep.

Tomorrow I know that I will have about 2 hours in between getting home for work and needing to leave for my evening class (I'm in grad school), so I plan on doing a nice, sweaty Leslie walk. I am really missing my workouts!

    My daughter is a teacher and she always talks about the first week or so of school. Long days, no food and very few bathroom breaks. It has to be so tough! Hang in there..

    You'll get there! New schedules need a new plan. Just keep working on it!

    I echo Kitty's sentiments. Things will calm down (hopefully) when all the babies are finished with their classes and then hopefully you can find a schedule in there somewhere.
    Try to get some rest sweetie! emoticon emoticon

    I miss my Leslie walks too. Hopefully I'll have enough space cleared soon so I can start again.

    The school year will calm down and you can get back into a rhythm. Right now, hang on tight - sounds like a heck of a ride!
