This week has been so awesome because for the first time since the school year started, I didn't have to get up at 6:45 a.m.
I don't have a set time to be at work. In fact, the earliest appointment I have for myself is 11:00 a.m. M1 and 2 don't have to be at school until 8:40. But, because of circumstances beyond our control, the youngest person in the household has not transitioned to her new home yet and she has to be where she needs to be by around 7:00 a.m. That means, my alarm buzzes every day at an ungodly hour, I throw on clothes, put my hair in a ponytail and keep my eyes open long enough to drive a few blocks round-trip.
My husband has taken care of dropping off both sets of school goers. It has been fantastic!
Tomorrow, though? He's taking advantage of a Groupon I purchased for him. He's quite excited about it. I'm excited for him. But, I wish it was scheduled for later in the day so I could hit the snooze.
Not only am I back on the school transportation duty, but I have an uber-tight schedule tomorrow!
I have to be at the girls' school by 10:45 to spend an hour volunteering in the library. I really enjoy that time. At 11:45, my presence has been requested by my oldest daughter to eat lunch with her. That means, I have to go to Subway before the library volunteer gig, pick up lunch for her and her bestie, and schlep along some sort of mechanism to keep the food cold during the library gig.
I am going to be tired.
Then, I have to come home and organize my Scentsy party supplies (relatively easy, but I'm fancying up a couple things for tomorrow night) to be ready to leave the house in order to arrive at my hostess' house around 5:30.
This weekend, I will need to focus on something other than my need of a nap and my desire to finally break my non-running streak. That is really starting to bug me. I need to put my feet in my shoes and my arse on the sidewalk and get moving. Argh!
I can't believe October is winding to an end. Really hoping by Thanksgiving that our family issues will be settled and we can look ahead to Christmas and New Year's with renewed hope and postivity. Wouldn't that be something?
