I'm not loving February
This month is tough. I knew it would be, but that doesn't make it any easier.
The four oldest are still in swim club and I decided to sign up the youngest for swim lessons. But the class which is held at the same time as the older kids' practice was full, so I took the one before it. That means two days a week, we eat supper at 4:30 in order to leave at 5pm, drive to the next town over, and shuttle kids through swimming until finally the oldest two are out of the pool at 8pm. But they still have to shower, change, and dress, so, we're usually arriving home around 9. At which time I want them all in bed, *now* but they want a snack first.
What long days these are.
Add in the other running for piano lessons, violin lessons, flute lessons and I simply have no desire to do much of anything else.
But we did this whole goal thing, so it at least keeps me honest with bookwork. I'll be super happy when February ends (youngest finishes lessons) and even happier the second week of March (swim club winter season is done).
Now to just make it till then.
