the day before the day

I just can't believe that after 7 months of being a stay at home mom, tomorrow, I return to work.  I am a mix of emotions.  I like work, being with others, accomplishing something, earning money...and, I love staying at home, cleaning and organizing, quiet, cooking and baking, my own schedule.

Atticus and Chance, good friends

Right now, I have the feeling that it will be good to be back to a schedule, good to walk my children into their classrooms where they so want to be, where they are so loved and taken care of by their teachers and classmates.

So, today I will spend getting ready for tomorrow.  And hopefully the effects will be long-lasting.


  1. 80% remember 80% because perfection hurts and you have already discovered joys of Imperfect!

  2. I am sorry that I have been absent. I returned as well. So I know.
