Routine

I hate routine.

I have always been a pretty-much fly by the seat of my pants kind of gal. I hate having to be somewhere by a certain time because if I am late, I get crazy. I've never had a routine for my boys either. Many parents had to have a set time for feeding, naps, etc., but I never did. The boys slept when they were tired and ate when they were hungry. And I liked it that way. We all flew by the seat of our pants together.

Having had no real routine all summer, this week is KILLING me. Having the boys' lunches to make, ensuring that homework is done, clothes are clean, driving Threepeat to and from school and preschool and getting to where we need to be extracurricularly (is that a word) has been nuts. Add to the mix a VERY busy work week and mountains of paperwork and cheques to be filled out for the schools and well, I am spent (excuse the pun)!

I'm feeling so blue (and I know alot of others are too from conversations, Facebook statuses, blogs and the like). I am chaulking it up to the change in both the weather, which suddenly turned cold and gray overnight) and the whole getting back into routine business. I hate it. I'm not sleeping either. Three nights in a row now and I have slept less than four hours each night, all of those hours broken sleep and the sleep I did get was fitful and full of horrible dreams. This whole ball of wax adds up to one stressed Mommy.

So tonight, I will take a sleeping pill...one of 15 pills that was prescribed for me many moons ago and will be the third one I have taken in those many moons. Sometimes, a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do to get recharged.

Here's hoping that next week will be a fresh one, where I will be used to the school routine and back to a well-rested, less moody, HAPPY human being. Pin It
