Summers are tough with Mb gone but you deal.
On of the hardest things is the routine.
As a mom you have to manage the schedules, keep a routine, make sure bedtime is in check, you know the drill.
So during the summer my day job goes on holiday. I try to focus on the positive I get more time in the gym, Tb and I have some quality time, we don’t have to live on a school schedule.
Then the summer is over. Yippee. This happens just about the time you are adjusted to the non parenting schedule. So it’s time to adjust again.
Mb’s calendar which had been pretty empty is starting to fill up with school stuff and so the scheduling and working parent juggling begins. My task list is growing and my workout opportunities are dwindling.
I’m not complaining. I’m so thankful to have this problem and I miss it, but I will admit its a tough adjustment after having been on summer break.
I guess if I’m honest it’s not just that I go from one job to 2 but when school starts so does my job 3 as Brownie Leader and new job 4 on the PTO events committee.
Let’s just say my life is managed by google calendar and there are 7 different schedules overlaid to give the complete outlook for the day.
Shiver. Time to get ready for back to school and back to being a 4 job juggler. Which means adding a few more cups of joe to the day 🙂
