It's funny how at the beginning of a school term we never hit the snooze button. We get everything ready the night before, so the next morning you basically just grab the bags and go! Everything is well organized and you feel energized. Then comes 4 weeks into the term and you start leaving certain things for the next morning. You'd much rather chill on the couch for an extra half hour than get everything ready for a smooth morning. Around week 6 into the term you completely forgot what holiday is and you are sweating blood! Everything is becoming an effort and the snooze button is working over time! Worst is that when you hit week 6, there is normally still another 4 weeks left!
With 2 weeks left of this term I am feeling exhausted and ready for holiday! The terms are so busy that we don't even have time to just sit and enjoy a minute or two! It's one big rush from point A to point B and I can't help but wonder what am I doing wrong? It's our first year in school and it feels like I'm never going to get into it! It's beating me 6 - 0 and there is nothing I can do about it.
My husband seems to think I am taking on too much, then I feel like (and maybe has done it once or twice) rolling my eyes because last time I checked we had 4 kids together. Obviously I have taken on a lot! These kids have so much going on and my problem is my daughter loves sport, she loves culture like music, singing and dance, so where do we draw the line because homework is endless! Can you imagine what it's going to be like when all 4 are in primary school!
I feel like I'm in a tumble dryer that never seems to stop, I have time for nothing accept for everything they all do and need. I wonder if I am missing something? Like is there an easier way to do this because I'm dead again! End of term syndrome has kicked in and I feel like quitting my job and moving to an exotic island!
There should really be a holiday camp for moms, where we can plug ourselves in during the holidays for a proper charge! It should also be open on weekend 6, weekend 10 and weekend 11!
So I can sit here and moan about it, share my exhaustion with you, but it won't change the fact that we have 2 weeks left and I am just gone have to make it work!! Life has officially done a 360 on me and everything has changed from a year ago..... The days before school!
Those were the days.........
