Remember my big plans for Project Me? It has become impossible me! The end of the school year and Summer have forced me to regroup my efforts. We chose not to send the kids to camp this Summer so finding time to work on me has become close to impossible. Now, just to focus on June it has been a hit or miss month. I had forgotten I guess about all the end of school year activities and was completely overwhelmed, but not in a bad way. I learned alot about myself and others in the process of it all. First of all being the room parent for both of my sons’ classes was a bit much. The parents this year were so much more helpful than last year, but two classes was just too much. The nail in the coffin was not being acknowledge at all by one of the teachers for helping out throughout the year. Hmmm.
We also had sports, piano and well, with two very different boys I had to do alot of creative juggling. I know that if I had planned my time better I could have found more time for myself, but it just didn’t happen. I’m okay with it. Honestly, I love spending time with boys. Really spending time with them, not just going through the motions. I enjoy watching them learn from new experiences and in the process I am taking care of myself. They teach me new things every single day. I also am enjoying the connections that I have made with other moms over the course of the school year. Friendships are what make people thrive.
So here is the scoop: I think I have made a schedule that I might be able to stick with ( at least for blogging) over the Summer. I haven’t gained any of the weight that I originally lost so that’s a plus. I still want to lose 5-10 pounds so I need to get a move on. My scrapbooks-are going to be making a comeback because they have totally dropped off the Project Me list as so many other things. I proclaim July as the month I take it all back! I know I can’t do it all, but I’m going to try. The one thing I know that I won’t be doing is neglecting my boys. They are my life.
