And the onset of the back-to-school scramble, schedule, and bank account drain that has me gasping into September.
It always amazes me how the stress creeps back in so quickly. It's almost as if summer never happened. Almost.
This morning is the first morning of Sunday School for the year and we're skipping. We're exhausted after the first week of school and moving Miss Erin back to Athens yesterday. I've been jumping through hoops all week getting everyone off and her ready to go and am feeling the drain. And MY year hasn't yet begun.
I have a few precious days left to untangle my desk, finish a few booth projects, and try to recharge for a new crop of Little People. My To Do List is long, but I have a couple of outings with old friends penciled in, so hopefully that will balance out the not-fun stuff.
I'm questioning the limits of my energy these days and the number of things on my plate. I'm perpetually over-scheduled, especially during the school year, so maybe it's time to let some things go? I'm praying about it... it's not a feeling of desperate stress, more a sense of just being tired and some resignation to the fact that I can't do it all. At least not well.
Today is catch-up day. Armed with my list. Onward! Hope it's a lovely Sunday wherever you are.
