Getting back in the swing of things after having two weeks off has been much harder on me this time around than it has on the girls. Usually they are the cranky ones tired and whining every afternoon because they are so tired from trying to get back to the old routine. This time around I have been tired and dreading getting up every morning to make lunches and rush the girls off to school only to pick them up to come home to homework and off to dance. After too many lazy days around the house I spent yesterday cleaning bathrooms, washing off the back patio and then thoroughly cleaning the living/dining room, dusting, wiping down windows, blinds and emptying out the china cabinet to clean and rearrange. I then finally washed and ironed the curtains that were not looking so white anymore and thankfully now after a wash and iron they look brand new again! It's amazing what a day of cleaning can do to a room. I made sure to enjoy all my hard work with a glass of wine last night while the girls dragged all their toys into the living room to play.
Now after cleaning an entire day away I am going to spend today running a few errands that I want to run before school pick up. I think I'm finally getting back into the swing of the routine!
