It's just tough to put myself back into that routine I so nicely fell out of. Seven glorious weeks of sleeping slightly later, leaving a little later in the morning, spending next to nothing on gas, getting Juliette earlier from school. Not having to feel guilty if I spent an evening or weekend not reviewing my head off. Yeah, it's been nice! And I'm not exactly overjoyed to endure some of the immaturity in my class and the smoke-filled breaks outside, and, whoah, wait, let's try to stay positive about this thing!
Sometimes I keep thinking, "I'll be happy when..."
- I finish my diploma
- I get a stable job
- my apartment is totally clean (like that will ever happen)
- my closets are completely organized (will only happen if I get on one of those shows where the cleaning fairies come to my house)
- we get a house I can decorate in my style...
We did take time out this morning to see the zoo visit at the circus that's in town. And we got to see the rehearsal for free. Juliette had that look of pure child-like joy on her face and it was fun to see her get so excited about the animals. I know these next months will be tough, but I must vow to take time for my little wonder-muffin and my husband. Here are a few pics of our morning:
Some nice memories to savor as I get back into the school groove.
Tell me when you think you'll be happy and how you cope with the waiting?
