Time is something I keep close track of during the school months... from the second I wake up until I snuggle in for the night and close my eyes. Well, and these days I'm even keeping close tabs on the hour and minute hands during the course of the night, as I'm waking up to pee often. I know, I know... probably a little too much information for ya, but hey, I'm just being honest here.
Back to last week... We tried to "practice" getting up early the week before, but it didn't really work so, we just jumped right in come early Monday morning. And it was rough, I tell ya, to say the least.
By Wednesday afternoon, I was walking around in a fog and didn't know if I was coming or going... but I was still keeping a close eye on the time.
The first day of school is always an exciting milestone no matter what grade your child is in. Excitement replaces grogginess come 7:00 AM the first day of school and everyone springs out of bed. I had three nutritious lunches (one for Haley, Jackson and Jon... JB requested a lunch for work that day) packed and labeled by 7:15 AM!
I always try to have something special and different for breakfast the first day of school. This year it was Monkey Bread to mark the occasion of the lil' monkeys going back to the zoo... err I mean school.
So, after I got the kiddos all settled in... err I mean dropped off... it was time to head over to help my grown 20 year old daughter with her new apartment.
We're still working on painting and getting her settled in this week. It's a slow process when she needs to work and make money to buy more stuff, not to mention, having a seven month pregnant mom who has to limit what she can do.
So, that's pretty much it. It was an eventful week and I'm glad it's over. Now it's time to settle in on the school schedule and focus on keeping track of the time.
Hope everyone is well.
