New

i just checked the yoga schedule to see if there is anything available for these MWF mornings when both kids are in school.  i have said that i have resigned myself to the fact that chloe is just going to be late for the rest of the year, but i'm still having trouble swallowing that pill.

1.  first off, i'm not the only one having to drop off two kids at different schools at the same time.

2.  chloe is in preschool.  yes, it is her "school" that i am paying for but it is still preschool.

3.  the preschool teacher is kind and understanding.

ALSO
i'm in my third trimester.
there are a million things on my plate, and i really need to refocus my perspective to keep myself from getting overwhelmed as
a)  my hormones are already out of control and
b)  the recent return of headaches/nausea (mild thankfully) mixed with physical discomforts and exhaustion is making me an irritable and emotional wreck

all i can say is that i am so thankful that today is the last day of gradual entry.  at least from here on, the kids' schedules will be consistent.

i feel like crying right now.
crying for the beauty of this peace and quiet that has snuggled around my buzzing head and burning eyes like a giant duvet.  for the rich warmth of my pumpkin chai, keeping me company and telling me "it's ok, everything is going to be just fine…"

i need to figure out how to make these mornings easier.
i need to sleep earlier since my internal clock and/or baby has got me awake at 7:00am and i just can't function in a way that i don't regret at the end of the day…

the kids need to sleep earlier so that they are less grumpy
which means we need to eat earlier
which means i need to make dinners more often so that we are eating earlier
which means i probably need to try doing that whole meal planning thing…
i hate the idea of scheduled food but i think survival might be a little more important right now…


GET OVER THE MWF DOUBLE 9AM DROP-OFF!
THE FASTER YOU LET IT BE THE BETTER YOU WILL FEEL!
until we are living across the street, as long as we can get to school early enough to get reasonably close parking, Moses will be on time and as long as he is on time, everything is fine.
EVERYTHING IS FINE.

UGH.  meal planning.  LAME.


i don't know why i signed up for all this craziness.
i can't believe i took saturday morning from both kevin and i with this dance and soccer.
