As much as I love my kids and my family I am completely out of sync this holidays and my poor head can’t take much more loss of routine.
Being routine reliant is not a new thing for me, I am if nothing a creature of habit and the holidays start so well but when drive and routine start to dwindle that’s it, it all goes to pot including my sanity.
If I am honest I think the toddler is beginning to get worked up with it too, along with the fact he is due to start his 15 hours in nursery which will be an increase from his current hours and I think this is much-needed … although anyone walking past my house on the first 2 days he is doing his 2 full days .. please knock and drop in chocolate in I fear I may need it as he currently is extremely tired after nursery now so how he will cope with more I am not sure!
The teen has spent some time with her biological Dad, I am sure this is much-needed for them and in fairness this has been a good move for me too. I love her but I fear the new nocturnal teen that she is becoming is driving me crazy, bedtime is bedtime and no amount of moaning can hide the hormones emanating from every pore.
I know its nuts but I like to work with a routine, I know where I stand, I use checklists and physically tick tasks off, but with 2 others at home pretty much full-time or at least one that’s up early and the other that surfaces at lunch, trying to get into my normal working routine has been nigh on impossible.
Bring back home work, packed lunches and a few hours of silence in which I can work .. or even procrastinate .. but it will great to decide that myself.
Is it just me that’s counting the hours till the term starts?
