March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb.
That’s the saying anyway, and this year, soooo very true. When my daughter’s basketball was over, I made that official [annoying] announcement that all extra-curricular activities were cancelled until further notice. I take that back, it’s not cancelling if there’s nothing going on, but it was the kabosh on any new starts. It’s true, my kids are deprived. They are allowed to do ONE activity a year–one sport, one club. This year my son did soccer in the fall and my daughter did basketball in the winter. And then March came and I was excited because finally, I wasn’t going to be a taxi driver anymore. Whooot! For three months this year, the only school activities will be the volunteering that I, or my kids, do. And there’s always the social aspect, which I’m not pulling either. Six kids, phew! I don’t know how my MIL did it with seven. Sometimes I don’t know how I’m doing it with six…or if I’m doing well-enough.
I’m grateful for March this year. It did come in like a lion, and it is leaving like a lamb. There are still things on my plate. But I’m able to focus a bit more on my writing, which is key for this girl’s sanity. Not only that, I’ve been able to pick up some reading as well.
I’m sure April showers will bring a few storms…some thunder and lightning. But I love this life. And I can’t wait for what the rest of this season brings…
Make Every Minute Count this year!! #MEMC
