Welcome back to Little Things Thursday! I got a little behind this past week with blogging because in all honesty, my daughter’s high school stuff is kicking my booty. Now, I know it should all be her high school stuff kicking her booty, but as a mom you still have to make sure it all happens. All the purchases for the week…my job. All the taxi needs…my job. Did I mention school is 36 miles away and we have umpteen functions to attend? All the forms and homework oversight…my job.
Not to mention normal life needs that don’t involve said high schooler. Can I get an amen, Mamas?
High School is kicking both of our butter beans.
I really want to get this time management thing back to auto pilot, but that isn’t going to happen. We are still working on the kinks of transitioning.
There is the mad rush to read 100 pages of the current literature selection. She is working steadily, but it is just a lot. It’s truly a lot.
She takes it all with a grain and loves going to school. Great friendships have been born and are developing as the weeks go by.
It’s all a blessing in our lives…but a busy blessing. I almost feel that my mothering needs have increased exponentially of late. There is just so much terrain to navigate. I need to be present.
I am present. It’s a gift to walk these last in the nest years and make them count. If I don’t blog as much as I used to it’s because I’m asleep. By the end of the day I am simply toast with a long list of the undone.
How’s your week?
