The past few weeks have been rough between raising two toddlers, packing, moving, and unpacking. Three weeks to pack up four people and all the junk that comes with them (cough, toys) simply isn’t enough time. At least, not when the older toddler is demanding playtime and the younger toddler screams to be held almost every waking second.
We’re finally settling in, finally starting to get back into a rhythm. But there are more headaches ahead. Namely, our oldest’s education. He’ll be in Kindergarten next year, which really shouldn’t be any cause for worry, concern, or headaches. But we now live in a sprawling city with an equally sprawling school district. Just because he’s zoned for one elementary school doesn’t mean we can’t try to get him into a better school through a lottery system. Which means I have to jump on doing those applications. Now.
And with the holidays coming up and literally just two garlands lying around, I think it’s time for a break. There is much we need to do in the coming months, much that I need to write down and organize, and many things for me to contemplate as I plan to go back to work by next fall.
So…I’ll be taking a few weeks off. I don’t quite know when I’ll be back, but I’m aiming for January 7th or 14th and The Husband has repeatedly assured me he’ll write posts for next year. I’ll definitely be back, but I won’t write a return date in stone. Next year will be a bit busy, so I may need to lay off blogging a bit, but I really do enjoy it, so I’ll be sneaking it in. I have ideas. I just need to find my lost minutes and hours. Heck, I’ll take seconds at this point.
Happy holidays, everyone!
