New Routine

Life is always throwing new routines my way.

Yesterday the spring swimming session began. During the fall and winter, the kids swim from 6:30-7:30pm Monday - Thursday, we usually only go three of the four days. But during spring the older group wants to get out early, so they are swimming after school instead of from 7-8:30pm, and my kids are now swimming from 5:30-6:30pm.

This means that we leave our house around 4:45 and arrive back home shortly after 7pm. That throws off meals. Now I have to fix the big meal for noon, usually it is hit or miss depending on the day. Then I have to make sure the kids have a big snack around 3 and then have something easy for a late supper. Just the thinking about this has thrown my gut into worrisome rumbles.

I know I'll get use to it, but boy I don't like the whole "getting used to it." Although you'd think, that would be "normal" since it seems that all I ever do is get used to one routine and then start over getting used to another.

As my friend Laura says, "Life is what happens while you are making other plans!"

Unfortunately that is life around here. It never seems to be predictable. I need to get Ben signed up for a new swimming session, but I don't have the energy to think about scheduling one more thing in. I will be SO happy when I am staying home! And, if our school board doesn't get it's act together we will be teaching at home too! Yuck! Not the teaching at home, but the yucky school board junk.

I HATE it when our meal schedule gets weirded up. Lent is the worst.

Hey, I didn't say that...I know it is on my Blog and I really like it. It was on some little plaque we bought on vacation and it hangs prominently in my kitchen. I think it might be from song...probably some country song. : )
