Day 44 - 54 Gearing up for the new school year
Monday, August 08, 2011
Not just for the kids, either. For me, too. I am finally going back for my MBA. A little stress over tuition. A lot of stress of the course load. Some stress over the youngest one entering middle school and starting his school soccer career (he's played on rec teams for three years). Stress over the oldest one's beginning her junior year and really needing to buckle down. Then stress over dealing with the overreactive, easily stressed, frequently freaked hubby and the upcoming schedule for which I will need help.
This weekend, I'm going to have to sit down and plan out a realistic and reasonable schedule for activities, meals, exercise, and family life. I'm really good at planning schedules, but horrible at sticking to them for longer than a few days.
But, as is my wont, I will bully through and get this done. Everyone will still be alive. Everyone will be loved. Things will get done. And maybe if I'm super busy, I won't be tempted into boredom eating.
