Does anyone else feel that their lives are “groundhog-day” in seasons? For me, fall season’s daily activities include school, homework, various sports, coupled with the various daily chores of laundry, cleaning, and cooking meals. Each season brings about a different set of activities, but alas, they remain the same scheduled chaos within the week.
It’s been a crazy few weeks for me trying to figure out where I have to be and what homework needs to be done. My husband has been traveling so much to Quantico that he’s been away more than he’s been present. Yes, it’s not as bad as workups or a deployment, but sometimes it is frustrating when they are “here, but not here”. I can’t count on him to help out with baths, story stelling or putting my little girl back into bed when she gets up for the fifth or sixth time.
