OK, the first week of no school and I am already getting into the bad habit of staying up too late. Why do I do it?? I am not sure. I KNOW when I stay up until 2am I will be tired the next day...but I have already done that two or three times in one week! I stayed up until 2:30 last night and I have not been very productive today. I have to get myself in gear here and get productive!! I wonder why no matter how late I sleep in, it is not as invigorating as when I go to bed at a decent time.
In a way it is fun to have a life with so much freedom. I really don't answer to anyone for anything. I have responsibilities with my family, and my job...but both are totally flexible. Basically, the three kids and I do what we want when we want. It is a fabulous way to live. Reagan, my oldest, will start her freshman year in College next year at 17 and is wondering how she will adapt to being told where to be when. I know she will be fine, as she already structures herself even though she doesn't have to. She loves to be academically challenged and will thrive at school I am sure. She also realizes that while she will be more tied down, the rest of us will still be flying by the seat of our pants. Even though I am sure there will be times she feels left out, I know she LOVES school and book work and will blossom.
SO... after that rabbit chase - I guess my point is that I am really glad to have a life lots of people only dream of - but I need to put my big girl panties on and make myself go to bed at a decent hour tonight!!
