Not sure what I have to write today but I felt the need to sit down and put something on ‘paper’ so here we go!
W is still home, we go tomorrow to finalize some things and have him doing online only courses for this semester. This way he will be able to keep up on the amount of credits without having to be either in class or lose marks. The hope is to do as many credits as possible (Up to 4) before January semester starts and with any luck have him back in school for 2nd semester, even if it’s just part-time to start! Any step forward is a good step at this point.
We are trying not to get too wrapped up in the timing or fitting in with his peers issues. Let’s face it, most people do just what is expected and how it’s expected and many of them are very miserable adults still searching for a reason to be happy. To me THAT is the real ‘normal’, sounds a bit over rated.
A (the oldest) is now home from school too! Just today, for now. He texted in the midst of an anxiety attack and wanted to come home and calm down. So be it, but I admit it gets hard to tell what’s real and what’s just teenage attitudes and procrastination.
(On to some not so serious griping!) *chuckle*
I have no problem sucking it up and doing what needs to be done for my kids but they are really putting a wrench into MY plans for these few months of time off I tell yah!
One intention was that the Bear was going to take days off here and there so that we might actually have the house and time to ourselves for a change. With W home all day, every day that kind of defeats the purpose of days off! I mean, you know, for some ‘adult time’! 😛
I’ve also added a few things to my day, things that The Bear has asked me to do which normally end up interrupted with either W needing something of A texting from school and needing my attention. It’s not the end of the world, that’s for sure but it would be nice to just stick to MY schedule without interruption for a change! (Some of you can stop laughing now! 😛 )
The good news is that I am getting my stretches and some working out done. Not having the extra physical work during the day is helping me to feel better and at least feel like I’m getting some where with healing. That reminds me, I have to call the doctor for results!
The last few years have been a bit crazy, no time and no energy to spare. We haven’t been or done anything really just for us in about 3 years. I was hoping these few months would be more about Us and not just the responsibilities. Best laid plans, right? *chuckle*
We are getting inventive with our ‘alone time’ but I am hoping/planning a trip in the spring. Just the two of us, just to get away and recharge. Hopefully the youngest will be back in school by then, hopefully the oldest will have a bit more street smarts by then.
Just another Monday! It’s bright and sunny and in truth I can’t complain! Things are hectic but we are happy, I’d say we’re doing pretty darn good! 😉
