Miss me? Consider my absence gift for your never ending reader or one less email in your inbox. What's funny about my lack of writing is that I recently had my parents visiting for two weeks, which should have made my time to write more abundant. But rather, I barely sat down at my computer.
Truth be told, August and September is a rough time for me. My husband is in the thick of wrapping the movie, just like he has been for the last 10 years at this time of year. I always get the, "are you surprised" response from him when I complain about his long hours. I'm not surprised, but it just never gets easier. Long days at work, maybe a 17 hour day was the longest lately, turns into a trip to do all the post-production work out of town. A two week trip. Sigh.
To top off all the fun that August and September brings around here, my oldest started school. A new school that's not right around the corner. My hubby usually does the morning portion of the drive, but if you put the pieces together, him not in town equals me driving both legs of the school commute. I really don't mind it much, but the mornings have been the biggest transition for me.
Up until mid-August, I was a morning lounger. My husband always gets up with the girls whatever awful time that may be. And me, I sleep in. Typically J didn't have to leave for work until 8:30 so most mornings you would find me in bed, yes EVEN ON THE WEEKENDS. Most of the time, I had breakfast in bed. Lazy me. Oh the memories. The fleeting memories.
But now, I'm mom to a school age girl that needs a lunch packed daily. I am busy packing a bento lunch every morning, which means I am up and rearing to go at, eek 6am. It's a big transition from the casual morning in bed.
What's the saying feast or famine, that's my life. There's more coming, it feels good to be back in the saddle again.
