This and That

My two week summer vacation is coming to an end. I can feel myself getting restless so I'm glad the new school term starts soon. I took a full break from my usual routine for everything, schoolwork, running, all of it. I was approaching burnout. I guess it worked because now I am ready to return!

I should finish my degree program next year, but I don't know what I will pursue. A big part of me regrets leaving Starbucks and with this degree I have a great chance at achieving management. If I stay in healthcare I do not know how happy I will be if I'm in an office for the rest of my life. Maybe a casual, fun office, nothing like where I currently work. My job is a major struggle right now.

My short term plan is to pack this last weekend full of movies and activities with the kids. My #workingmomsummer tag is an outward show of an inward desire to make summer great while I work full-time and they are stuck at home. But that's how I grew up, too! Motherhood remains an exercise in guilt, especially in summer.
