Summer’s almost over!

I feel like summer is over already.  I know it's only the end of July, but in my mind I'm already having to let go of the "carelessness" of summer.  

My schedule is packed over the next few weeks before I start work again, and it's packed with a lot of "work stuff."  

I'm presenting three days next week and need to prep this weekend for the presentations.  Two days are new and I haven't presented them before.  One day I've done so many times I could do it blindfolded.

The following week, I have to get into my classroom, unpack boxes, and set it up because the week before school starts, we're in Tahoe for a week of family vacation.  The family vacation will be nice, but I know I won't be able to fully relax because I'll be thinking about school/work and all that I still need to get done.

Ugh . . . life's getting stressful again.  With littles at home, I never feel like I do a good job when I'm working.  And, when I'm working, I feel like I can't do a good job at home.  I can't give 100% to both work and home.  I'd love to be able to stay home, but it's not an option right now.

However, I do have a pretty good job that allows me to be a part of my children's lives.  I just wish my personality would let me let go of work and relax.  But no, I need things to be organized and in place in order to relax.  It's all about order.  I can stand some chaos, but not too much!

Just as a side note . . . it's really hard to get clear pictures of two boys who don't stop moving!  Well, the baby is easy.  He doesn't move that much yet.
