This week I have been trying to work my way out of super relaxed, do nothing, holiday mode, and ease back in to some kind of schedule. The Father Figure went back to work this week and I had a hospital allergy appointment to help jolt me back into reality, but I just can’t do it.
I drag myself out of bed in the mornings, even though I swear I will get up at a ‘reasonable time’ (aka before 9am). I lose half the day reading or playing that godforsaken tiny towers game. I forget to make dinner until 7:30pm and then realise I have nothing to make for dinner as I haven’t gotten around to making a new 2014 printable calendar, or a menu plan for this month, or even a shopping list. I stay up too late re-stocking my virtual sushi bar, and get woken by various kids coughing or having ‘scary dreamings’ since their father let them watch Gremlins… and so the cycle begins again.
I am caught between wanting to continue on in this fashion forever, ignoring the fact that the school holidays are slowly ebbing away, and needing to get on top of things before the insanity that is the start of the school year…
I halfheartedly downloaded and printed ‘Unraveling The Year Ahead‘ in an attempt to throw myself into some planning and goals, but so far I have only looked at a few pages… it all seems to hard!
I am inspired by these ideas from my favourite blog but our days are far from ‘reverent’ at the moment… with little routine or rhythm.
But perhaps that is what we all need right now… just a few more days of nothing.
So I am laughing at this re-make or Lorde’s ‘Royals’, because I can so relate.
And I’m slowly… slowly… trying to get back into the swing of things!
