September, again!

Another September, another back to school, and another fresh start full of plans and hopes – for me! Of what I’ll be able to get done, and what structures and routines I’m going to be able to implement. Which of course never have actually worked out, because life just gets crazy and busy and there’s so much going on.

But here we are, and this time I’m hoping will be different!

See if you see me managing to write some posts, and we’ll see how I’m doing 😉


Wasn’t prepared!

I was completely unprepared for “Back to School” after Christmas!

The kids went back to school on Wednesday and I was up early and ready and able to go about the day, even though I was exhausted. I didn’t manage an early night because we took down the Christmas decorations after the kids went to bed, and that took until midnight!

On Thursday I could barely drag myself out of bed to get the kids to school on time, and when I got home I had to take a nap with Baba Z – I think I slept longer than her, and I was still exhausted and a write off for the day.

And today, I didn’t get up – the hubbie did the school run…

Usually I would start getting back into routine at least a week before getting back to school, trying to get early nights and up early – but this time over Christmas I let the kids completely out of routine, late nights and late mornings – and I didn’t ease back into early mornings. And I’m paying for it now 🙂

How do you do it? Do you ease yourself back in, or just get back into routine when the time comes?
