5. More. Weeks!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have been puttin' in time as a WOHM for this school year (I had tenure, DH had poor job stability). We just started our last unit of study this week, I have almost everything photocopied and everything planned out in detail. I just need to grade SO much stuff (I have serious spring fever and keep procrastinating... esp now that they unblocked MDC on our network!) and ride out the last month. And it would be nice if DH's job hunt paid off soon! Then.... School's out foreeeeeeever! DD is SO excited. I'm glad she and DH had this year together, I really am... but I feel I've lost my mama mojo (so tired and it's hard for me to be the best teacher and the best mom I want to be) and the same level of connection I used to have with her. I know it will be a transition back... getting back into the homemaking habits DH has taken over (well, some just haven't been done for a year, blech, unless I did them occassionally)... but I'm SO excited!!!! I loved being a SAHM and this job went from part time like every other day to much more like full time (b/c of my school assignment and schedule) so I really mourned that as it slipped away w/o my even realizing... but the end is finally in sight!

Congratulations!!! I have five more months and I share your excitement. I'll be going on mat leave and then staying home again like I did with DS until the last few months when finances made me return. Now we've straightened things out and this time I'll be at home for good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I too have lost my mama mojo and I can't believe how fast it happened. I feel so much more committed to work because I can relax and get things done in a 8 hour stretch compared to two rushed hours in the morning and two cranky hours in the evening at home. I'm really looking forward to getting all that time with my family and my house back. They both are in dire need of some TLC.

Ah, exactly! I'm pregnant and I just use up all my energy with 40 teens clamoring for my attention all day... I come home and can barely stay awake, let alone want to hear anyone talk at all

I really love being a SAHM and now it's like 4 weeks and one day! It feels so good letting myself remember how wonderful it was... and will be!
