So close i can taste it.
So ja, let the summer holidays roll on. The temptation though is to over use every second of this time. In my life down time is just a luxury so when you get 3 weeks off, you are so tempted to clean out the cupboards, cook every day, bake with your kids, finish endless craft projects and lets not even talk about being the domestic goddess of christmas. Sometimes i think that working moms even suffer more from this pressure.
That is why i am relieved with the way that my leave has panned out. I have four days off by myself. (BY MYSELF??? can you even imagine 4 days all by yourself?) Then East London for a week and a half, back to work for a week and then 3 days off when Gabby starts school for the first time. Those three days will be half days for me, so i will still get mornings to myself.
But who am i kidding? I love the madness! I love the chaos! Life is short and i may as well milk every moment of it. It cant be that bad if i am considering throwing another kid in the mix! I keep telling myself that soon they will be sulky teenagers with no interest in me. They will all go out on Saturdays and i can sit on the couch, do my sewing and watching mind numbing tv shows. But until then i have another ten years or so to go! And until then i have a summr holiday breathing thankfully down my neck!
