This week eases us back into our “normal” schedule with Sky going back to school, and next week we add in swimming again, which means getting up and out of the house (putting myself together) every day of the week. It actually makes Friday feel like Friday and the weekends feel like more of a weekend, and that’s kind of nice.
One of the things about being a stay at home mom is there isn’t much difference between Mon-Fri and the weekend. The days tend to be much the same with no weekend to look forward to for a break. Not complaining, because I love this life and the choice to stay home that was made, but it was one of those things I didn’t foresee and didn’t really know how to change. Being a stay at home mom doesn’t mean I don’t want my weekend (we need breaks/down time too!) and a change in pace.
Now that Sky’s in school and has weekly activities and appointments the weekends once again feel like weekends. We can lounge in pj’s or whatever. I don’t get a break from my Mommy duties, but at least it’s a change in schedule with less going on (ideally), and breaks up the sameness of the days.
Some random life stuff…
Even though they lost their playoff game Sky still randomly marches through the house saying “Here we go Steelers, here we go”! My job here is done. 😉
I just have to get this off my chest…to the person who accused me of brainwashing my child into being a Steelers fan (complete strange felt like they could say something they should have kept to themselves) do you really think that your child is any more or less brainwashed just because they are a Hawks fan?! Just because it’s the home team that makes what you do ok, but what I do not ok? Mind you all I did was put her in a Steelers dress that SHE picked out for herself. Yes, I’m a Steelers fan and chances are Sky will be to, it’s hard not to be given a family member played for them. But, what this stranger doesn’t have a clue about is that I actually don’t care what team Sky’s a fan of, as long as she’s a FOOTBALL fan. And, don’t even get me started on the fact that there are kids in the world being brainwashed into thinking and doing horrible things to others, so really you want to accuse me of brainwashing my child?
Since the Steelers are out of it I’m looking forward to watching playoff games and SB without really caring what happens. I have preferences of course, but no emotion or stress watching the games, because my team is not involved. Now all I hope for are good, clean, close games with no controversial calls/plays. No blowouts….blowouts are boring.
Any other football fans out there? Is your team still in it?
