Falling into a routine.
Since well before Ava was born, our routine has been all sorts of out of whack. It has been such an effort to just stick to things that in the end would make my life simple and much easier. Things like meal planning, has been such a hassle, that I would put it off until the last minute and then get annoyed that I needed to write one up 5 minutes before leaving for the grocery.
The good news is I can feel it coming back, albeit slowly, but our routine is starting to take shape again. I am starting to bake again and enjoy being in the kitchen. I feel a satisfaction folding and putting away the laundry. I am looking forward to making up a meal plan this week and cooking.
It feels great to finally feel comfortable in my day and it helps tremendously with my patience and if there is one thing you need with a 4 soon to be 5 year old, it is patience!
I am looking forward to the next chapter in our lives, the one that leads us to San Antonio and new routines, and new possibilities. I am really looking forward to autumn. The cool, crisp air. Pumpkins and scarves. and after this scorcher of a summer, the ability to spend lots of time outside, comfortably!
and here is to hoping that this routine allows time to blog more! ;)
