I am thankful for school starting again! Yes I am one of those parents who struggles with the Christmas school holidays. The 6 weeks seems to drag for me. I work at home and my work doesn’t stop during the holidays so I feel like I am constantly saying “I’m working right now and I’ll and see / play with you / feed you soon”.
I am thankful that Girl Child has gotten ready for school relatively quickly so far and we have been on time for school. It could have been close this morning as she didn't actually get up until 8.20.
I am thankful that Boy Child is doing well and seems to be coping okay even though he doesn't have a single teacher from last year (except for roll group which is 5 minutes every morning). For a child with Aspergers he is coping with the changes remarkably well.
I am thankful that we are doing fine while Mr E is away in Sydney this week. Last week, the kids and I went to the coast for 3 days and let’s just say that I was not a very calm mother while we were away. I was afraid that this week would be similar but it’s going well – so much better than I hoped.
I’m grateful that Dr Jesse gave me a med that helps my head. Due to an issue at the chemist I have been unable to have it for 3 days. While i am much better than last year, I can feel the lack of the migraine med. Hopefully I will get a new prescription today (it takes 2 days) because I took the last one I had on Monday
I am especially thankful that the volunteer webmaster role that I took on (sort of by accident) is not trying my patience as much. There is still more work than I expected but I’m coping better with it.
I think I might be getting my motivation to blog back too! That’s another thing for me to be thankful for.
