Back-to-School Countdown!

I don't know about my boys but I am counting down the days until they return to school.  10 Days left of summer!  I'm sorry but I am not one of those moms that will be sad when the school bus pulls away.  They NEED school.  They need routine and summer boardem has set in big time.  I think they are even tired of video games.

Supplies are purchased, backpacks are ready.  We should be finding out who their teachers will be this week.  Puck will be going into 3rd grade and Muffin into 1st.  It's truly amazing to when you stop and take notice of just how much time has passed!

I will admit to some anxiety about what that also means....because in addition to school starting the following also starts...
busiest time of the year at my job
homework, I really hate homework Shh....
Hubs will be traveling with his new job so a lot of this will fall to me.  I'll miss my partner but I'm up for the challenge.  We definitely won't be board!!!

Mid-Year Resolutions

I guess it's really past mid but I've been thinking about all the changes I really want to make in my life.  New years resolutions usually don't stick so maybe mid-late year ones will! 

Here are my wishes, in no particular order...

Eat Fresh, unprocessed food
Get my kids do eat LESS processed food
Learn to love cooking and do it better
Pack my lunch daily
Lose weight, even just a little
Go to bed with a clean kitchen every night
Go to bed earlier
Spend more time reading at night with my kids
Drink more water and less soda (and no I can't give it up)
Go on more dates with the Hubs
These seem doable to me.  I think I'll hit the grocery store tonight to get my ingredients for my The Fresh 20 lunch plans I just purchased.  I actually purchased the dinners too but as a non-cooker I'm not sure I'm ready for that.  Since Hubs cooks most of the dinners, I'll concentrate on eating better during the day. 
Saying 'Goodbye' to summer.  The boys on our last day at the beach!
