As a family we are trying to get a rhythm down. Well, I suppose you could call it a routine, not a schedule though. Schedules require time frames and set times for doing things. I just want or need to know that on Monday I will clean the bathrooms, on Tuesday the laundry. After we pick up Rhayn from school we will have a snack and then do some chores.
Because how we are currently living? It. Is. Not. Working.
I have had more panic attack/anxiety freak outs this past week or two than I have ever had before. It doesn't help that my period was all crazy these past few weeks. I spotted for 4 days last week, a full ten days before starting my period. Then yesterday she showed up FULL force instead of the way she usually starts, all slow and easy the first day and painful and heavy the second. No. Not normal at all. And I know, I have been tracking my cycles using MyMonthlyCycles for 40 months. I used it before I got pregnant with Gwennie, too. So honestly I have been using that website for five years, as long as I have had this blog.
Oh, look, if I continue on as I have been, I will get my next period right before my birthday next month. Yay.
Um, where was I going with this?
Oh right, routines.
So I have been trying to figure out how to make our days go smoothly. Do any of you have an afternoon/school routine? If so how did you come to it? Does it make your day go more easily?
I will write more about it later, but for now I am going to lay on the couch for a half an hour with a heating pad. Sigh.
