Monday's, back to drop offs, pick ups, lunches, laundry and everything else. You would think that it would be nice to get back to school but this time of year it just seems like there is not enough hours in the day. As soon as school starts its meet the teachers, back to school nights and homework and we all know that homework is really work for parents to do at home with the kids, am I right? Not to mention we are at the beginning of holiday season: Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. It seems like every weekend is booked up with some kind of event and it really makes it hard to find time for yourself when your running in a million other directions. But this is the time that you need to find that time to yourself. Its important so you don't get overloaded and have a breakdown! well maybe not as many break downs haha. So after you drop off, before you start your load of laundry and millions of chores make sure and try to read that chapter you've been wanting to read, go on that walk, meet up with that friend for some coffee, whatever it is find the time that makes you feel like you again. One of my personal favorite things to do is put on my music, make dinner and have a nice glass of wine. Remember to make time for your retreat.
