The day ran away again. Not in a bad way at all, but it ran.
It’s been “normalize” time for us in the house. Finding homes for the kids’ new toys, getting back into our somewhat regular routines, re-stocking the fridge and pantry…
Now the holidays are over and everything’s about to start up again. It’s odd to me how we just stop and start with all of it. Before Christmas break the kids’ homework scaled down over the last few weeks and then they got a bunch of half days. It was preparatory.
I just stopped going to work one day and I start going again next week. It seems drastic, I guess. Like changing channels on tv, it’s just suddenly something else.
No preparation. No scale down, no ramp up, just flip the switch and we’re back with our regularly scheduled programming.
I wonder if it’s at all healthy. I wonder if it isn’t better to find some way to move more smoothly from one phase to the next. That seems like something that would be better for me anyway. Seems like something I need to work on a bit.
