First Day of School Jitters
I don't always deal well with those emotions. I am a type A, highly sensitive person who likes routine and consistency. In my head I know that we are embarking on a new routine, and in due time I will be just fine. It's just those first few days, that really throw me for a loop.
So how did I do today? Well, first to stop myself from emotional eating, I kept very busy. I cleaned like crazy (that would be my go to therapy when I feel out of control), I did laundry, mowed the lawn, and now I am blogging. I believe the vacuuming and mowing the lawn helped with the silence issue ;)
My emotions have settled a bit as I look at the clock that is reading 2:30 p.m. Ok, I can do this.... one more hour. I will be so excited to hear about their first day. Hopefully dinner conversation tonight is filled with giggles, stories, and perhaps the mention of meeting a new friend or two.
Tomorrow will be better and Friday even better. To all the other parents who share my jitters, hang in there :)
