Today is Trinity’s last day of 6th grade. She really is growing up too fast, but I’ll save you that rant. You already read it all when I ranted about it being her 12th birthday already.
I know I should be a little sad because of this… but I’m relieved. I no longer have to wake up at 6:30 every morning, at least until September. My husband works night shift, and I swear it messes with all of us. We are all night people, including Trinity. We don’t do mornings very well. We’re more likely to see the sunset than the sunrise.
I’m fighting to stay awake right now. I’m exhausted. The only thing getting me through is that I get to sleep in tomorrow. I just keep telling myself, ‘just make it through today.’
I’m good at pep talking myself through things. It’s how I got to where I am with running. Some days I have to constantly tell myself things like, ‘just make it through this song, and you’ll be half way done,’ or ‘just about ten more minutes and you’ll be done.’
I, however, am not good at pep talking myself through things if there is no end in sight. If I didn’t know when I would get to sleep in again, I probably wouldn’t be awake right now. If I didn’t know how long my run takes, I’d give up halfway through.
I don’t know where I’m going with this. I just started this post as a way to keep myself awake. The other interwebs were boring me this morning. I guess I’ll go squeeze a run in before picking the soon to be 7th grader up from school.
I need to start planning for summer vacation. I have a whole list of things I want to accomplish. Once I get it organized and finalized, I’ll share it. One thing on the list is ‘watch the sun rise over the ocean.’ That will probably only happen if I stay up all night.
I’m also taking suggestions! What do you think I should add to my list? What is on your list? Do other people even make lists like this?
