When I was off this summer, occasionally, a whole day would go by and I’d look back and realize I didn’t do much. I’m sure I folded some clothes, played some games, and changed some diapers, but overall, it was just a lazy day.
Well, I haven’t had one of those days in a long time. And I missss them.
Here’s what my calendar looked like for September.
I did not stop going. I missed my babies. I missed sleep. I missed the start of all our favorite TV shows. I missed grocery shopping. I missed coupons. I missed blogging. I missed friends. Oh, and sleep, I missed lots and lots of sleep.
Last month was exhausting.
I don’t think I’ve ever said that before. I’ve had exhausting days. Definitely a week or two that was exhausting, but never an exhausting month.
I never want to have a month like that again. When I was at school, I was thinking about being at home and missing my kids. When I was at home, I was thinking about work that needed to be done or what I needed to do at school.
And apparently Thirty-One is all the rage and everyone wants to book parties. Which, in theory, sounds good, but it just takes time away from my family, so that’s a little bittersweet.
I’m so glad it’s officially October. And not just because it’s my birthday month, although that does help. I get two of October’s four weeks off. It’s Halloween which I LOVE. It’s turning cooler and we get to have fires. And the leaves are changing. And we get to eat chili. And it’s not September anymore. Woohoo.
