One week under our belts here. Please don’t take this as boasting….please. Just don’t. But…..it went pretty well. I even experimented with doing my MWF (scratch Monday to just Wed/Fri this past week) in the a.m. and had Hubby wake the kiddos so that our 5th grader is ready (almost) for me to take her to school when I get finished at 7. So far, so good. (The high schooler is long gone at that point and the middle schoolers still have an hour-ish before they leave). We also had cheer practice on Tuesday and Thursday. Lawn mowings at the end of the week. Of course, no real homework to speak of until Friday, overall, I simply can NOT complain. Disgusting, right? Hopeful, yes?? Yes. I vote yes.
And so why in the he-double hockey sticks were the Hubs and I flat exhausted this week? Flat. Out. Exhausted. Hopefully we will get a second wind and adjust to our schedules and school life–which as history shows, we will. Until then, I will sing the praises of the iced coffee and the franchise of the Donut that is Dunkin’.
**of course, adjusting bedtimes, dinner routines and getting back on the healthier eating choices will help, too. DD is just so tasty and convenient, though!
