Five Random Things, October 17, 2017

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.

3. October is also my birthday month. Growing up it was Columbus day, but that is no longer PC.

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?
