It’s Fine! We’re Fine! Everything’s Fine!

Me? Oh, ya know — same old, same old. I’m working a little more than I’d like — probably around a hundred or so hours a week. I mean, they want me to work more but I’m like, “No.” I draw the line at 110 hours. Like, that’s it. I’m on this project where I have to push this giant rock up a hill, and every time I get close to the top it rolls back down. Like, by design. I don’t know who scoped this thing. It’s fine, but whenever I ask the project manager what the end date is she bellows, “This is your eternity,” in this really low, spooky voice, which is totally not helpful.

Hold on to that feelin’, friends. What feeling? The feeling of warm summer nights, vacations, and the low-key pace of summer. It will be summer again before we know it. Only nine more months to go.

Good Riddance to Summer!

As a mother of three little ones who also works outside the home, I keep a lot of schedules in my brain. In summer, it feels like everyone is doing something new every week, and it's a challenge to keep track of it all.

I'll be grateful to get back into the school routine and have it stay the same for the next nine months!

We Dread It Too — Back to School for the Teacher...

But when I walk into Target I am ambushed. I am hit smack in the face with the reminder that it doesn't last forever. The back-to-school posters, classroom decor, colorful pens, pencils, and folders. I do love colorful supplies but not in the middle of summer. These organization tools and writing utensils that usually excite me are now just a reminder that summer does end. And I don't want summer to end, just as much as my kids don't.
