1. When I wake up a 5 a.m. to work out, I feel great. When I wake up at 5 a.m. for any other purpose, I spend the entire day walking around like a zombie. In order to get Joey to school on time, I need to wake up around 5:30 a.m. I haven’t been able to consistently wake up before 5:30 to work out yet. We’ve been in school for over a month. The good news is that I am getting more sleep. The bad news is that I don’t feel more rested.
2. I resigned from a large law firm on October 16, 2009. In October of 2015, I transitioned to a more active role at our company, splitting my time between the firm and the company. In October 2016, I took an additional step away from the firm, where I would continue to work, but not be present at the office. On October 16, 2017, I announced that I would be leaving private practice. October is the month for change.
4. We have been eating the same meals on repeat. I cannot seem to get motivated to change it up. Maybe once a week there is something new. The other nights I have been eating random leftovers with the kids and making something else for Ryan when he gets home. I need to start meal planning again, prepping things on Sunday, blah. The evenings just get unexpectedly busy where I would rather force Joey to practice guitar and supervise letter writing than make dinner.
5. Do Kindergartener’s have homework? Technically we do not, not on a regular basis. However sometimes she comes home with a worksheet and I am not sure if that is because she should’ve completed it at school, but didn’t have enough time, or if it is for all the students. And because I feel out of the loop as to what is actually going on at school, I feel like extra practice would be good. Some days I make everyone do “homework”, just for kicks and to make sure that she is doing something that seems like school. Is that horrible?
