This week was my last week of summer. (Insert moment of silence here.) Since my last week involved 6 dentist appointments, 2 hair appointments, 2 orientations, a vet appointment, and school shopping, it was far from relaxing!
This is where anxiety starts to set in. How am I possibly going to uphold this blog, work full-time, and be a mom? Oh yeah…and I should probably worry about cleaning this house.
So, I will spend the weekend doing laundry, grocery shopping, and trying to get a jumpstart on some projects. Orrrrrr just trying to finish up old ones. Like this…
I guess you could always add to my “to do” list by linking up and distracting me from my work. Just a thought. Show off your projects!
My to do list is getting so long lately! And the kiddos being back in school hasn’t help me much either…just added more projects to the list:) Good luck juggling it all and have a great weekend!
I don’t know what it feels like to be home while the kids are gone, but I do know it’ll be a busy year! I’m sure it’ll all get figured out. It always does! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!
Christa @ BrownSugarToast says
Thanks for the party!!! hope your to-do list gets done despite all the awesome linky projects 🙂
Me too, Christa! Thanks so much for stopping by!
Erin @ How to Nest for Less says
Ha! I’m the same way. Full time job, a mommy of a very active 3 year old and trying to blog for fun on the side! Good luck with this weekend and hope you enjoy your last few moments of summer 🙂
Thanks so much, Erin! I’m trying to! Have a great weekend!
good luck! you will manage to get it all done…. but don’t feel bad if you don’t because it will make the rest of us feel better. 😉 and i had my own moment of silence followed by a happy dance as i sent my son back to school last week!
Now that was funny. 🙂 Don’t worry–I probably won’t get it all done!
Oh I know the feeling! I am absolutely spinning right now with all the stuff to be done now that we are back to school! I don’t even want to look at my house right now!!
I just did dishes, and as I was doing them, I thought, “I’m just gonna have to do these again in a couple of hours!” It’s never-ending! 🙂
Maya @ Completely Coastal says
I honestly have no idea how you guys do it!! I don’t have a job to go to, nor am I a mom…., and still at times that same thought and feeling of “how am I going to uphold my blog” kicks in.
Ugh…I know, Maya. It’s difficult because it’s so overwhelming yet so fun at the same time! I guess we find the balance when we enjoy something enough, eh? 🙂
Amanda @ Serenity Now says
Hi, Chris! I’m trying to catch my breath before the girls start school too. It’s a lot to get together, isn’t it? This is my first time linking up to your party. Thanks for hosting. 🙂
I haven’t checked any links yet! I’m excited to see what you shared! Have a great school year!
In “real life”, I am a teacher. I started my blog this summer and had a blast! Now that I am back to work, squeeeeezing in blog time is tricky!
Thank you for this great par-taaay to kick off my weekend!

True, Kerry! I’ve been doing this for several years, and it’s STILL a struggle. Don’t put too much pressure on yourself. Your readers will wait for you. 😉
You are definitely a busy woman! Best of luck with everything!
Thank you, Veronica!
Thanks for hosting, enjoy the long weekend!
Thanks so much, Hollie! You too!
Maury @ A Fabuless Home says

Thank you, Maury! I appreciate you stopping by!
Christina @ Christina's Adventures says
Ugh Chris…I start school next week too 🙁 So stressed…spent 13 hours in school the past 2 days and I feel so stressed STILL! Best of luck next week…can’t wait to hear about it!!
Best of luck to you too! Those first couple of weeks are TOUGH. 🙁
Jenn Erickson/Rook No. 17 says
Thank you so much for hosting. Wishing you the best of luck for a smooth and stress-free back-to-school and work transition!
Thanks so much, Jenn! I really appreciate that.
Keep your head up lady! I know it can be rough. I don’t even have kids and sometimes I feel like I’m drowning, so I can imagine what you must be going through. Here’s to a relaxing weekend 🙂
Thank you, Tatum. (great name, by the way) Things will slow down soon enough!
SIX dental appointments, oh my! I think you did well to just survive, some weeks are just that–surviving. I really enjoy your blog. Just try and pace yourself and remember to breathe.
Amen, Margo. Well said! Thank you!
Erin @ Two Story Cottage says
Good luck this school year! I taught middle school and even though I’ve been out of the classroom for a few years I still get back to school butterflies. Sometimes it is nice to just get started so you can get the first few days under your belt. I swear the week leading up to back to school is the hardest! Hope you get a great group of kids.
Oh, and thanks for hosting. 🙂
Yes! I totally agree. These first few weeks are the WORST and then things find their groove. Thanks for your encouragement!
Kassi @ Truly Lovely says
Thanks for hosting! ESPECIALLY since it sounds like you’re spread pretty thin! You’ll get back into a routine and all will get better! 🙂
Well said, Kassi. I sure hope so! I HAVE to host it. It’s the only normalcy I know right now! 🙂
Thanks for hosting another show and share. Hope thing slow down a bit for you. Enjoy the weekend.
Thank you, Kim! They will…someday. 🙂

Here’s hoping your to-do list gets shorter and the routine of going back to school gives you and your family some regular rhythm to your schedule. You’lll get to everything… eventually, right?
Thanks for hosting, dear!
I am a teacher and I completely understand all of your back to school anxieties. School is all consuming and it is difficult to accomplish anything once it goes back in session. We’ve been back for four weeks (three with kids) and I am exhausted! A three day weekend is just what I need. I hope you have a great school year!
Boy do I ever hear you! I am back at school this week, too. Spent the last week at the dentist getting the son’s retainer switched over…shopping…crafting like crazy…attending PD meetings…
No essays to mark, yet, though.
If you figure out the magic solution to time management or manage to figure out cloning, please, please let me know! Hope your first semester goes well.
