I’ve been traveling this week for work.
I don’t normally have to travel – maybe once a year at the most – so this was an unusual occurrence for me although not an unwelcome one.
Except for one fact.
My kids started school today.
Yeah. Crazy week.
I flew out on Monday and had two and a half days chock-full of meetings. Wonderful, exciting (seriously) meetings that left me energized and thrilled about what’s to come for work in the next few months. I work with a fantastic group of people and I can’t wait to get started on this next project with them. It’s going to be a LOT of work but it will also be a lot of fun.
I flew in late last night – flying in the rain over ATL was interesting. Grey, gloomy skies with pops of twinkling lights as I landed.
When I finally made it home, I found this waiting for me on the kitchen counter:
Isn’t that sweet?
They had also cleaned the house, done the laundry, stripped and remade beds (!) and made their lunches for the first day of school.
I love my girls. And, I love that they are big and can do all these things while I’m gone. Talk about making a working mama’s life easier!!
I woke up this morning to get my babies ready for school – their first day of school – Big Girl started High School and Little Bit (who isn’t so little anymore) started Middle School.
When did this happen!?!? I mean, seriously. Some days it feels like I took a nap and they woke up grown. Other days… well, I’m sure you know what I mean.
And now? I’m pooped.
I just posted this on my Instagram:
And that’s exactly how I feel right now.
I’m going to go see how early I can get these large people that live with me to go to bed. Or, maybe I’ll just go to bed without them!
