Well, it shouldn't be a surprise, but in and among all this transition, I got sick.
And my kids got sick.
And my husband got sick, very slightly, for a day or two.
So, I am trying to get my wind in my sails again after being down for about a week.
Funny how getting sick makes you push the immediate STOP button and just attend to the most important things.
I am familiar with this feeling after motherhood. The running along as things work well, the wheels not squeaking, until STOP, the whole train is off track, and all everyone wants is for it to be back on track again.
But in those moments of STOP, I find some solace now. And some much needed rest that otherwise would have not happened.
I am still taking the liberty to sleep in and take a nap when my body needs it.
I know, stay at home moms, especially homeschool moms, do nothing but sleep all day... Ha!
Homeschool has still taken precedence, along with showers, eating, getting clothed and washing laundry.
Hopefully the workout routine will start up again soon, once this congestion in my chest finally leaves. Any bit of overexertion leaves me in a coughing fit.
Here is to breathing again in this new month. Happy September!
