So apparently last summer was I being terribly masochistic, because I signed up for a really, really time consuming job for Iris's pre-school co-op. Today I FINALLY got to pass the torch over to the person who is taking over for next year's groups! YAY! I spent the past couple days doing a ton of working in preparation of handing it all over, but now I'm absolutely DONE. I am so relieved. It's going to be a long, long time before I decide to take on a project like that again. Next year in co-op I'm going to do a super easy job, like order the books or take pictures or something. If anyone tries to sign up for the job I want I'll take them down. Seriously.
Now I just have two-- yes, two!-- more days to work and then I'm done with that, as well. I can feel myself starting to breathe easier already. Of course, instead of working my booty off outside of the home, I'll be doing it all at home, as any SAHM knows how that goes. I imagine I'll be this totally organized cleaning, shopping, child-caring machine, but I am sure in actuality it will be more about handling all the tiny emergencies that pop up. When I look back on this summer, after the new baby is here, I'll probably think it was about the easiest time in my life! LOL
I've started compiling a list of all the fun things I want to do with Iris this summer. The places to go and things to do. Activities that are summer-only and MUCH easier to do with only one child in tow. We're going to milk every last bit of fun from this summer if it's the last thing we do!
