No good can come of this post

By Tara Zandra | April 16, 2013

If Chris came home from work tomorrow and told me his company wanted us to move across the country, I would look at it as an adventure.

If he came home and said he was now going to work 30 minutes later everyday, I would go into a tizzy.

I cannot handle small changes.

As I look at our potential dance schedule for next year, I can feel my heart pounding and my mood is getting bleaker. I’d like to point out that this happens to me every single year. You might not understand what the big deal is, but the fact is my kids take a combined 15 classes this year and next year I believe it’s 18 classes. That is what you call a scheduling nightmare (for all involved, including the studio).

Now that we’re used to eating dinner at 4pm and have a good rhythm with which of us drives which kid when, it’s all going to change. Oh, not until August, but registration is now which is why I’m thinking about it. I like Tuesday and Friday, but Wednesday not so much and I haven’t a clue how I will work Thursday since we also have violin on that day.

If I was an easy going type of person, it wouldn’t matter. But I’m not. I’m constantly operating in the danger zone level of stress.

And it is exhausting.

    Wow, what are all the classes?! I guess it can add up with two kids. If I count B’s this year it is…six…and two of them are twice a week. Piano, writing, French, robotics, critical thinking, and art. Oh, and bowling league. Guess that is technically 7 since it’s yet another place we need to be each week. I don’t want to think about it all. LOL I just take each day as it comes.

    You sound like me (or what I was like when my kids were a bit younger…)…small changes don’t sit well with me at all…..but probably like you do….I eventually adapted and got used to the new schedule…until next time! LOL

    I know I will adapt- I always do. And you would think knowing that I’ll adapt would help me freaking relax but I am just not wired that way. I haven’t a clue how to do nothing or to relax. Relaxing for me is doing more stuff. Sounds like a whole ‘nother post I could write!
