This countdown is ON, friends.
I know it's just now the start of the school year. And the fall air has just become slightly crispy. And the new season of Modern Family just barely came on the air last week.
But, every night as I lay my head down on the pillow I hear, "I can't wait until this is over" playing over and over, again and again and again in my head.
After three years of this full-time work plus grad school schedule, it finally feels like there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
A doula friend pointed out the other day that my countdown until May is similar to a forty week pregnancy countdown. We watch the weeks tick by, each one growing more tiring, yet with grand anticipation of what lies ahead. Waiting and wondering how life may be different once the product of gestation has finally arrived. We are eager friends, very eager!
And with that I tally my weekly grocery spending. Drumroll please...
Not bad. We're getting closer. I have a good feeling about next week (maybe that's because I've already done my grocery shopping ;)
In the meantime, something to dance to, my dear.
(BTW - The music is groovy, but if the video is too much for your innocent eyes, simply close them... and boogie.)
