Adventures of Motherhood

I am a harried mother of three kids who move at light speed and a husband who lives in a world of words. If that isn't enough, I teach in an elementary school as I slowly watch my hair turn gray.

I Feel So LAZY!!

School is out....The kids are in camp...And I am not working this summer, the first time in 10 years. I feel so lazy!

I'm trying to relax, but at the same time I think about how the kids will be finished camp in 3 weeks. I want to enjoy this time, but I think that sometimes I don't know how to relax. I read a book and put the timer on so that I'll stop reading and do laundry.

I have so many things I want to do. Chores in the house and out of the house. I just can't seem to summon the energy to do anything. On top of this, I have had a nap every afternoon (except on the weekend, then the kids won't let me)

Some mothers that I know can't wait for their kids to come home from day camp. They miss them so much...I worry that something is wrong with me. Of course I miss them...I adore them. Well most of the time :) But I look forward to dropping them off at camp. I know their safe, happy and are having fun. I crave this time to myself.

Carmi gets upset with me that I worry so much about the house and the laundry...."It'll get done" But when will it get done? Who's going to do it?

I figure maybe Carmi is right, so the house is messy. I can clean it later. I might as well take advantage of this time. Next July is a long time from now.

How do you relax? What makes you feel lazy?
