What a week!!

— feeling tired

My kids & I just finished our first week back at school. My daughter has to be at school by 7 and my son by 8:25. My daughter needs me to wake her up at 5:30 and then she usually gets ready with no problem. They don't go to the same school anymore, so I take her first at 6:40. Then I come home and spend 30 minutes (at least) trying to drag my son out of bed. He is definitely not a morning person (neither am I btw). He can be very um.... difficult in the morning. Then I drive him to school and proceed to my volunteer duties in the library. Lately, I spend the day there, then go pick up my daughter  and come back and pick up my son. I also spend what seems like hours waiting in line each day. Needless to say, we are all exhausted. Hopefully, this gets easier as the year goes on....

 

Meanwhile, I have been sort of absent from Booklikes. Being on booklikes is one of my favorite things to do. I intend to work hard to make time for reviewing and commenting and participating in book clubs along with my mom duties, like driving to and from school, homework help and volunteering. Hopefully this gets easier as the year progresses too....

 

Please forgive my absences during this adjustment period. :)
