I'm Not Ready! End of Summer Blues
By Anita Davis Sullivan on August 12, 2013
School starts this week for the big and the little. 5th grade and Preschool.
We have the supplies, we’ve met the teachers, and even been shopping for food to make lunch boxes.
But we had hopes of more beach trips, more time with family,
more some craft projects, more bike rides, more popsicles. We were going to get organized (you know, for the first time ever) and have our home office area a space we would want to work in and keep things well organized in. We were going to finish some painting, finish some floors, and finally design our bedroom retreat.
Now we jump into mornings of hurry, nights of homework and bedtimes, worse traffic, calendars and papers galore, and juggling more than ever. I’d like to put a hold on time.
I’m not ready!
Since I can’t, my backup technique is reminding myself of all the good things. So here is my list of the top things I’m looking forward to in the next few months, and why I’m almost celebrating back to school.
We start back before a lot of other areas do, so some of you may just be starting to think of Back to School. Are you ready, are your kids ready? What are you looking forward to?
