But several hours later, we got a Google calendar in place for all of us to access, so anyone can tell at a glance what is going on and can make changes as they occur. It is long overdue. We have become one of those overscheduled families I always swore we would never be. And I don't know how. Alicia's involvement is limited to just a few activities, but with her additional class at the college and the fact that music alone ends up booking an obscene amount of time, it's barely manageable. And all Alex has is music (band, piano, guitar) and an after school GATE class. So where is all our time going?
I registered for a writing convention in March today. It happens just before the kids start spring break. I'll be honest. I want to go because I have a story that is a final for one of their annual awards so I want to get dressed up for the banquet/awards ceremony, but I also really want to go just to get away from the insanity for a few days. Is that too selfish of me?
