Oh how I love having a routine once again!
The summer seemed to be chaos when there was no scheduled activities for us, I could have made a schedule but I wouldn't have followed it, I need to work with someone else's. With Ivy in Kindergarten 4 days a week and Anna and I attending playgroup twice a week it is enough to help make me stable and happy!
My councilor knows how much I like/need routines, so she tried to get me to write out what I was going to do a day by the hour (8am-wake and dress, 9am-feed and dress girls, 10am-feed animals etc etc) but that was way more then I could do. If I didn't get something done in it allotted hour then I felt like a failure and I didn't want to continue with the schedule.
Also to add to my weekly routine, today I will be attending a Wellness group here in town. The program with be for an hour every Tuesday morn for 8 weeks. The neighbours E&D will be looking after the girls, I should be back in time to put Ivy on the bus for kindergarten.
On a other note, the girls have not been feeling well lately. I've been sending Ivy to school with a cough and this past weekend Anna came down with a sinus cold which this morning I can feel is trying to attack me as well. I blame school for these new germs. I truly hope the whole school year doesn't end up with us getting sick one after another. that would suck!
