Thinking that this is the hardest time of the year. It's cold, dark, and full of dreary days. February always, always gets me down.
Feeling like we need to get away. See above. :)
Doing a lot of worrying about how hard the kids are working. The stress that they are under to get good grades, have a ton of extra-curriculars, do community service, play a sport, play an instrument, etc...is crazy sometimes. I've lessened a lot of their commitments over this year and I think it's time to do it again.
Appreciating what amazing kids I have. They do their homework without me telling them to, they do household chores, they work hard to keep their grades high and ask for help when they need it. I'm a very, very lucky momma.
Moving furniture around and redecorating. A family member gave us a piece of furniture that we put in our living room, which then necessitated changing around that room. So now we need to move some other furniture down to the basement and then move another piece to the bedroom level. If you give a mouse a cookie...
Trying to plan our summer. Which is easier said than done. Beth may be able to take her freshman PE course over the summer. We may be able to take two smaller trips instead of one longer one. But we don't have enough scheduling info yet for Beth's school and Tom's work to actually make the plans.
Dreaming of any of those summer plans. See the first section above. :)
