Ever since school started, life at our home has been at a frenetic pace. Homework, soccer, field trips, work projects, meetings, birthday parties, blah, blah, blah.
I start my day at 5:45am with a run, speed through the day with work, chauffering kids, and housework, and then collapse into bed at 10pm exhausted from my day. My pillow has never felt so good.
I was excited about the fall routine and quite frankly our schedule is going smoothly, but we have little time during the week where something isn’t planned.
Today, I have a reprieve. I received a call from the school nurse this morning that our oldest daughter wasn’t feeling well.
She’s now in her jammies and wrapped in her blanket on the couch watching some TV.
I’m nestled nearby catering to her needs and catching up on my email and writing this post.
I think we’re both happy for the time-out.
