Nothing strikes fear into the heart of a teacher/writer/mother like the three words Back To School. Just when the words start flowing, the kids start entertaining themselves, and the traveling ends, the tranquility that is a full time writer comes to a crashing halt.
Feel the whiplash? I wonder if my health insurance would cover that. **pondering moment**
I have seven days before reality uproots my writing for ten months. Seven days to shop, purge the house, write a book, say goodbye to sleep, get the kid ready, OMG I have nothing to wear!! How do you write a lesson plan again, first or third person? Where the heck did I leave my name badge? Oh crud, I meant to__________ fill in the blank with the millions of things I planned to do and never did. And today is Hubby’s birthday. Where’s the damn cake?
But I’m reminded, rather oddly, of the saying, “It’s not the size of the girl in the fight, but the size of the fight in the girl.” I am a big girl, but I’ve also got a lot of fight when it comes to both my writing and teaching careers.
And. . . . this year I have a master plan. A plan that involves FREEZER MEALS, along with a few other things I will disclose in good time.
So, if you’re a teacher/writer/mother, (all three or just one) and you’re looking for a few times saving healthy tips for getting ALL THE THINGS done, stick around. You might find something useful.
And, as for those freezer meals, check this site out.
