So in spite of the fact that I am on the 21 day fix extreme program of healthy eating and exercise regiment,  I went and had a burger–with bacon and onion rings. None of it is good for mhouse-1344034e. except maybe the atoms of air between the layers. This week started out with crazy, when on the first day of school for me, as a teacher, and my kids with their supplies, including the car keys, all packed in the trunk from the night before–because we decided to pre-plan–see how this works?  Today, I am hoping crazy has hit the highest peak with the flooding of the kitchen sink into the laundry room and involved the stopping of the dishwasher and the laundry—oops, maybe I’m not supposed to run all these appliances at the same time—and tomorrow things will go downhill to some type of normal. I did come home early from work to start on my other work (a woman’s work IS never done). I got ambitious and ran all the appliances while I did my workout. I also planned to cook dinner and start on next week’s lesson plans. Ten minutes into my “me” time– my husband hollers at me–and there goes the workout. About an hour later, I pack up the kids and we run away to a kids-eat-free establishment and I had my burger.

So what’s the point? I enjoyed my burger and my children and realized that I am not meant to perfect all these hats that I wear every single day. Wife, mother, teacher, woman, will have to let some things go. So…clearing throat…let it go, let it go…
