Ack....I feel like I've fallen off the face of the earth here. For some reason, this time of the year always gets hectic for me and I get that "itchy-can't-believe-it's-almost-the-end-of-school" twitch . This particular feeling consumes me and while I enjoy it and actually look forward to it from January on, it still leaves me a little overwhelmed. Hmmm....more like a LOT overwhelmed. I'm absolutely positive that I'm ready for it and then BAM...it hits and I feel unprepared! Have we done enough? Too much? Can we finish and still enjoy summer? How do I settle this urge to spring clean for days on end AND buckle down and finish the school year strong AND handle that "Oh heck, it's almost summer, so let's just quit now" feeling? Some days it overpowers me and I wind up doing NOTHING. I hate those days.
Am I the ONLY one in the world that experiences such inner conflict!?
This year, school was finishing out strong and the house was getting in order. Key word...WAS. Mike took off his annual May week. (we celebrate K's birthday and our anniversary, by doing a mini-stay at home vacation) We had fun...until K decided to get sick. Fortunately(?), that was at the end of the week, so it wasn't too much of a buzz kill. Now I have to find that momentum again and crack the whip TOMORROW. How did TOMORROW get here so quickly? UGH!!
We WILL finish strong, spring cleaning WILL be finished and we WILL enjoy our summer!!
I can almost taste it.
It tastes like....M&M's.
Oh, wait....that might just be from my little snack.
