8AM vs. 8PM
Went a little crazy with the makeup today but the kids loved it! First day back into our routine was a little hard. Especially since it’s so hot and it’s a full day together, with them being off school for the summer.
But we survived. I got a door in my face; hurt my front teeth and upper lip. Adam got hit in the head with a football twice, but at least it was one on each cheek; no jealous!
We were pretty bored and also lacking energy but we survived! Tomorrow we’ll get it right! I’ll get us a list of activities ready so we don’t get lost and sit in the grass staring at the clouds for an hour again!
I very much dislike summer. It is beautiful. But overall it’s just gross. Rips me of my energy and sanity.
It drives me mad sometimes but I still enjoy it, to some extent. And as much as I have very little free time for these two months, I don’t care. Sure, I’d love to still be able to work my ass off. But I have fun with the kids and I love them so much.
So, tomorrow, I’ll wake up, bright and early, have my breakfast and coffee while reading an awesome book! Then I’ll wait patiently for them to wake and then we’ll have the best eight to ten hours together. And then, when the evening comes, I will be exhausted but will still try my best to work on a little something. And then after a nice night of rest, we’ll go through it all once again.
And that is probably the way my summer is going to unroll, for the big lines at least. And it won’t be boring but full of surprises and good times. And, I will hopefully, fill in between the lines with some even crunchier details!
I know it’s going to be hard for me to really be any amount of productive, but I’m still going to try as much as I can. The heat and the full days aren’t gonna be easy, but I know that I will make it through, and if I’m lucky, with a10% of work done!
I’m full of hope & sweat for this summer! ❤
