Slow back to routine

Today is my first day back at work. To be honest, I am not quite sure how I feel about it yet. The return to routine is always a mix of relief and panic at the same time. The boys still have a little over 2 weeks left of their summer breaks but already you can feel a sense of winding down... no more swim meets... tennis ending... fall football starting... school supply shopping... the mad dash to get that last minute dentist/doctor appointment... soccer playoffs.... school shoe shopping.... seeing whether last year's school clothes still fit.... starting to think about the return to school lunches. As much as I feel the summer is a non stop whirl wind of activity, it seems so short when it is over.

Happy Monday! xox

I am a sucker... and I am fully aware of it. I am the type of person who, no matter how much I don't feel like volunteering or taking care of something, always ends up with it on their plate. You know the kind? The one who tries not to make eye contact with the person asking for help, yet always seems to make eye contact? The person who can see red flags coming 500 miles away, yet ends up doing it anyway? The one who loudly tells everyone that they will never do it again, yet does it anyway? The one who thinks to themselves "What a dumb project!", yet finds themselves in charge of it. Well, that is me. Sucker... su-cker! All of my friends are either just like me (you know who you are!)... or spend most of their time laughing at me (you also know who you are!). The thing is that I don't need thanks for it, nor do I need to feel needed... I am just a sucker ;) Plain and simple!

So, in honour of the fact that I just spent most of the day doing something that I really could have felt better NOT doing (and no- it was not laundry), I will now sit on my front porch and have a coffee... and let go of my sucker-dom for a little while ;) Ha!

Wishing you all a great rest of your day... being sucker free, I hope ;) xox

Yups... that says it all about me ;)
