Do I Really Have To?
I’m sure as you read this I’ll be dealing with all the fun* of getting three children and myself off to school, daycare and work after the lazy, indolent days of the school holidays. Whether we’ll be on time, with lunches packed, matching shoes on and neat hair, that remains to be seen…
*Just to make it clear there will be nothing fun about it!
As usual, I’m dreading being tied down again to stifling routine. I hate being a slave to timetables and deadlines. I really detest the endless run around that characterises my life as a working parent.
I guess you could say that I’m REALLY not looking forward to living that life again for another ten weeks. And, not surprisingly, the kids are equally reluctant to return to the daily demands of real life too.
I’m sure we’ll get back into the groove again quickly and next week I’ll be marvelling at how it seems we never had time off at all.
But for now, with the prospect of a hard day ahead of me trying to motivate the kids while I try to also motivate myself, I’m going to echo the question that Gilbert asked me ad nauseum yesterday. It really does get to the heart of the matter.
“Do I REALLY have to go back?”
Letting loose with a whine today for IBOT. I promise I will be happier and less whingy tomorrow…pinky promise!
