Where do I begin? There has been so much transition going on in my life it can be hard to keep up with it all. One of the first areas that tends to fall through the cracks is this space. My mother said, “I haven’t seen any posts lately.” That’s when I knew that I had fallen way off.
I have to say, it has been next to impossible to do all that I set out to do. Since being home from work, I have made some “in the meantime” plans. I am spending more time with my kids. They will both be coming home from daycare after this month. There’s no need to keep spending money for them to be somewhere else all day. In the meantime, they’ll be with me. My son will start a new preschool and my daughter will be with me full time. Have I lost my mind? I don’t think so.
I have been touring schools like a crazy woman to find the one that I feel is just right for my baby boy. I haven’t done tours of schools since we were on the search for their day care. I forgot how much junk is out there. Some people really shouldn’t work with children.
I think we’re close to making a decision about his next step. My worry is his transition. He’s been at his current school since he was 6 months old. Feel free to pray for me on this one. While I have been at home, child-free, I have taken the time to clean the whole house in a way I just didn’t have the time to do while I was working full-time. I’m also taking the time to organize. I’m getting the kids area set up differently, since they’ll be spending more time at home and I’m getting my office set up to work from home. There may be a before and after post there. The before is a hot mess, so the after should be ah-mazing.
My daughter has decided that she doesn’t sleep through the night anymore. The only time I get to blog/think is at night. So, yeah. You can feel free to pray on that too. That little girl needs to rekindle her love for sleeping through the night. I think she forgot how good that feels and I need her to remember. Soon.
Did this post just become a prayer request? Maybe.
I’m guessing in the next week or so, I’ll get my lift together and have something for your reading pleasure. I know it will be adjusting all over again once they are home from daycare. The smell of Murphy’s Oil Soap and dinners on the table before six o’clock that my husband has gotten used to, will probably come to a screeching halt for a little while. I’m confident we’ll find our rhythm for our “in the meantime” mode. This is the time when Mommy gets to figure our the next steps of my life. I’m taking my time, I want to make sure that the next steps are the best steps.
What’s up with you?
