Family in Motion

So we had this 3-day weekend, with two days unscheduled. Yay, right? Chance to unwind, relax. Apparently, we're not too good at that.

I go to say goodnight to Riley on Monday night, and she freaks out, remembering that she still has homework to do. Other than reading, I'd forgotten to even ask about homework! She did most, but didn't quite complete it.

Come Tuesday morning, it seems I've forgotten how to get up at 6, and we're all scrambling to get ready in time. Sylvia wasn't quite sure what art class she had Tuesday afternoon, and therefore, had to take almost everything to school just in case.

Since the beginning of the school year, we've been going full speed ahead. Seems I still need to learn how to run this family from a sitting position.

That constant motion thing. Not easy. Then again, it's (almost?) easier when you keep up the momentum. It's the stopping that throws things off...

Oh boy. I'm dreading those days. I hope I don't get any while I'm pregnant or recovering, lol.

I love holidays, but it does throw my routine out of whack! Here's to getting back to 'normal' soon! (And enjoying a weekend!)
