What timing, for daylight savings to begin the day before kids go back to school.
I usually LOVE daylight savings time. Increased sunshine means warmer weather, getting out and about and having fun…
But the timing, sucks.
Right when we are wrapping up our end of week holidays. Right when we are having late nights.
THE DAY BEFORE SCHOOL STARTS AGAIN.
Who decided this?
Today, we woke late, but yet, it was even later. We had a kids birthday party to attend out of all things, and so ended our holiday tired, weary-eyed and sucked out of sleep as we watched baby girl expend energy we didn’t know she had, going nuts on a jumping castle.
Everything that is great, must come to an end.
And I’m okay with that.
Sure the timing is crap. It never is the right time to lose an hour of your day, is it? But having a week off with both baby girl and Hubbie, means I have had a lot of fun, SURE…
But I am soooo behind in everything else.
Which is why I am so relieved for things to go back to some kind of normal. Tomorrow I am keen to get on board with my writing course. I am terribly behind on that. I am keen to buy groceries and re-stock the fridge. Things that I can stop to grab that is just too hard with baby girl in tow, become terrifically convenient when she is at school and I can dash in and out of places.
I can water plants. I can make phone calls.
I can write in peace! PEACE!
I know that routine is good for me, and it is good for baby girl too. She was only telling me the other day, after days of fun and adventure, that she missed her friends, and staying at home was “boring.”
This from the girl who met Andy Day the dinosaur-in-time explorer during her holidays. But hey, she has high expectations, right? 😉
And then, after some routine, some writing and schooling and working, in no time at all it will be –
‘Jingle bells, jingle bells…’
Christmas folks! And that means MORE holidays.
I am okay with change. I am okay with routine. Because I know, as is life, I will come around to this happy and free holiday place, again… ♥♥♥♥
