With only a couple of weeks left until school starts I find myself trying to stay occupied. The garden stuff is coming in and hockey camps are starting too. I really find that September is the "new year". Everything starts back up and life seems to gain a routine again. I have a couple of volunteer jobs set up for the fall and hopefully that will help cover some time. I'll probably join some group at church and hockey will fill the evenings. I can't believe I'm saying this but I'm looking forward to winter!
It's kinda funny but I'm starting to fall back into the routine of being a stay at home mom again. I think I actually kinda like it. I enjoy it more than when my kids were babies. See I have this "Freedom need" and with the kids gone to school I can have a few hours of where I can do the things I want to without tripping over little bodies. lol I feel like I'm more productive and with my new KitchenAid mixer it's easier to cook things. I am finding joy in providing for my family other than financially. It's just taken a bit to get back to that mentality.
