Life of a Working Mom and Back to School

Oh boy…this has been one of THOSE weeks for sure!  Thankfully it’s the last week before school starts.  Not that I don’t like my kids hoe from school (less stringent with bedtimes), but a nice set schedule will be nice.   This week for work has been fairy busy and of course I’m slowing getting over the “crud” that I had still.  The congestion has went away but the cough is still there and my lungs don’t feel 100% again yet.   Not to mention the feeling of fatigue and occasional feeling of shortness of breath.  I will be glad once I feel 100% again for sure!

So many parents sent their kids back to school this week.  I truly enjoyed seeing all the return to school photos on Facebook.  We haven’t gotten there quite yet.   My 8-year-old returns to school on Thursday, August 21st.  I can’t believe she will be in 3rd grade this year!  It completely baffles me!  Where did the time go?!?

I’m just amazed at my bright, sweet little girl and all the joy that she has brought to my life, but now she is getting so big!  The things that come out of her mouth are so funny and sometimes off the wall.  She never fails to keep us on our toes that’s for sure!

So as we go into the final few days before school starts, I am preparing schedules and meals, workout schedules, getting the house in order from the summer chaos and trying to get everything back in order.  Although right now after a full day of work the thought makes me want to yawn.  Can’t I just go lay down on the couch and nap?   Even just 30 minutes?

No I tell myself!  Finish this blog post and get up and get into the kitchen to start dinner before everyone is starving to death.  We did rearrange the schedule some this school year to accommodate my new Fit Club that I have going on every Tuesday night.   So starting in September Sofie will now start going to gymnastics on Monday nights instead of Tuesdays to make it where we only have one activity going on in a days time.  Only a few more weeks to get through of Tuesday’s being packed.  Also I’m going to continue getting up early to get my runs in early in the day and then program workout in the evening in which I’m going to be restarting PiYo since being sick I missed so many of the workouts.

Did your kids return back to school this week?  What grades?   What things do you do to make your schedule easier during the school year?
