Two semesters of class work done, two to go. Then I get to start my rotations. We fell into a better groove this semester that we will continue next semester. I am a morning person. My brain doesn't operate at night. So I get up at 4am each day and go to school and study until class starts at 9:00 or 10:00am. Hubby drops the kids off at daycare on his way to work. I get out of class at 4:00pm and pick up the girls and we go home and make dinner and spend the evening together. I feel like I've found about as a good a balance between school and family as possible. Now I just need a house elf to help me keep the house clean. As it is, I struggle just to keep up with the laundry and dishes.
Right now school is out and I get to savor every moment with my family with minimal study stress in the back of my mind. And to make things even better, I did all my Christmas shopping online this year and started shopping super early, so I am completely done with gifts wrapped and under the tree.
Today little Amelia and I are having a Mommy and Amelia day while Julia is in school. I was going to take Amelia back in time for lunch, but my poor girl is not feeling well. She is running a low-grade fever and skipped lunch in favor of a nap. She's not been my normal happy, bubbly Amelia. Hopefully she'll be feeling better by tomorrow so Julia and I can have our scheduled Mommy and Julia day.
Hope you all are enjoying your holiday as much as I am! God bless.
