That dreadful time of year is now upon us. I must return to be “teacher lady Jen” in only a few short weeks. September 1 is my first day back and I have much to prepare. I have a to-do list a mile long to make sure I am prepared as well as my daughter. Fun stuff!! Sort of! It is a lot of work but I am going to work hard to get ahead of the game so I can stay there! HA! Every year I work hard to find my perfect organization and each year it gets better.

I need to find MY perfect balance!!

My balance requires a plan. But not a written-in-stone plan. I still need to be flexible. We shall see how the plan works this week. See ya next week.

    We’re back on schedule (or trying to be) this week. School starts 8/30 for my little guy.

    Drooling over your chinese chicken lo-mein…do you have the recipe posted to share? Just reading it makes me want to try it!

    We’re starting tomorrow too. Both kids are on the same schedule again which is a blessing and a curse. I am also changing my work schedule so it will be early to bed for all of us!! Love your menu plan. Great job!

    Good luck finding your balance. Not sure if you saw my blog on Saturday, but you might want to check it out. I think you will be pleasantly surprised!
