My daughter’s field hockey team practice was cancelled yesterday due to rain. Is it bad that I was secretly happy that I did not have to bark out orders to get all of the equipment packed up and drive all the way across town?
Wanna know something else? I AM NOT LOOKING FORWARD TO SCHOOL STARTING! Boom!
Yep, I have continued my yearly denial techniques: no shopping on the tax-free weekend (there are NO good sales that weekend anyway) and waiting until the last-minute to purchase school supplies.
Perhaps I am not looking forward to school because we did not have a restful summer filled with “just hanging by the pool” and lazy days of nothing to do. Since I have to be at work at 8am, we still get up early just like during the school year so I can get the girls to summer camp before work.
Although summer offers a reprieve from homework and extracurricular activities, this mama is not feeling refreshed and ready to begin a new school year.
Just thinking about homework and the hurry, scurry schedule gives me a rash.
Totally not trying to be a Debbie Downer–just keeping it real.
Ladies, kids or not….are you rested and full of renewed energy? Are you happy?
Do you feel like you can efficiently wear all of the hats your life demands you to put on AND look fresh and fashionable?
I found an interesting article and graphic on www.greatbusinessschools.org called: A Woman’s Paradox: The unique challenges facing women who “want it all”.
With studies to back up their claims, the article states: “Despite progress toward “having it all,” research shows that American women are less satisfied and burn out more quickly. And today’s economic realities mean fewer options when it comes to choosing between work and home.”
Check it out and let me know your thoughts in the comments section! (Click on the graphic see a larger view.)
