This week is the beginning of our busy schedule.
School doesn’t start until the 28th but Levi starts swim today for the 7th grade swim team. Right smack in the middle of the day. So we can’t do anything if we want to unless it’s a few hours in the morning or in the afternoon. Which means, we won’t be doing much of anything. Let’s just face it. Unless I want to be stressed, frustrated with my kids for cramming their schedule or worried about being late for swim, it’s just not going to happen.
Luckily, before swim today, we will get to watch the Solar Eclipse. It’s only about 25-30% totality here but still something to be seen. My kids could care less and will probably be obnoxious, grumpy little shits when I make them go outside to check it out with our awesome welding glasses! I can hear the complaining now. “It’s so hot out here.” “Ugh, I hate bugs.” “How long is this going to take?” Ya, kids are awesome as they grow up….
What I should have done was wake up early for Yoga and left those little beasties behind. But no, I couldn’t sleep for the life of me last night! Sleep finally came to me around 1am and the last thing I wanted to do was be up, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, ready for Yoga. Instead I woke up leisurely, worked out at home, cleaned the pool and weed eated the front yard. Still, I should have gone to Yoga. Fortunately for me, they have different classes all day long. As long as I can get to one that doesn’t conflict with the swim schedule than I am good.
I’m probably not going to yoga today….
I started projects over the weekend and can finish them in this weird schedule we have this week. Not that it will actually happen but when I say to it myself I sound productive. After a little over 1 year of living here, I am hanging up pictures. I had some hung, the easy ones but the rest have been piled in closets since we moved in. I won’t hang them all, just because I don’t plan on this being our “forever” home. Or even, a few more years home. But for now, I need it to feel more like home.
Today will be filled with making eye doctors appointments, maybe finishing up a project or 2, hanging a picture….but just 1. I don’t want to overwhelm myself. Swim comes right after we get to see the Eclipse at its maximum here and then relaxing for the rest of the day. Who am I kidding. I will do more than all of that and most likely not any of those things at all!
