I am oversubscribed, and it is my own doing. Mostly. Not entirely. Also all of my words are currently occupied in other places related to my job-job. Also tomorrow is the first day of school for my children, and I have yet to pack a lunch or iron a uniform. I have been to the grocery; I have bought a few school supplies, but only the bare necessities. I am feeling a little overwhelmed.
My daughter is feeling a tiny bit anxious, partly because she’s starting middle school but mostly because she is the highly organized child of a terribly disorganized mother. “It’s all good; don’t worry,” her brother said. “A few sheets of paper, a pencil and a lunch – that’s all you really need on the first day. Just roll with it.”
Which reminded me of this post I wrote a couple of years ago. Which reminded me that everything is going to be fine. Really, it is. And I’ll be back; really, I will.
