it's been a long couple of days.

10+ (sometimes 14 hour!) days, board meetings, reuniting with old friends, project planning meetings, dinners away from home, soccer practice, school that starts 15 minutes earlier than it did last year.

it's been a long couple of days.

and in the meantime, i'm working out, running, keeping track of my calories.

and also doing a little laundry.

i'm signing off on homework assignments and making sure school lunch is packed.

tonight, i am collapsed on the sofa watching football. within an arm's length are about 27 items that could be picked up and put away. but i'm gonna go ahead and let them sit there. because i am the most incredible kind of tired: bone weary, muscle aching, I FEEL REALLY GOOD ABOUT THE WORK I'M DOING tired.

right now i am overdone. but tomorrow morning, i will ready to do it all again!

I feel your pain! It's hard to be a working mom!

Lelly, you have quite a pace you're keeping.

I'm impressed that you're still finding time to work out amidst the craziness. I bet that school being 15 minutes earlier makes a big difference! It would here.

15 mins is a big difference! We have a 10 min earlier arrival and 10 min later dismissal and it throws me most days! I had 7 years of one schedule so it is not easy to just adjust 10 mins. (sounds crazy right?) -carlo
