Looking back, Looking ahead

This has been my last few years. This trend has got to stop. And a pattern I've noticed is the jump between Aug-Jan. Part of it is of course holidays and all the food & stress that goes with it. Part of it started when my kiddo started 1st grade in Aug 2012. This last year we finally got him diagnosed as ADHD & ODD and got a 504 plan established for him. Getting him settled into the routine for the new school year always seams to be such a struggle...but this year we have a plan. Now, I'm thinking I need a plan for ME to deal with Aug-Jan. That's my goal for the next few days. I'm going to map out the obstacles and how I'm going to deal.
Put your own oxygen mask on before helping others, right? Someday I need it to really sink in that if I start taking better care of myself I will be a better mom and wife.
I plan on being back in a day or two with a plan. Everyone feel free to check up on me if I go AWOL?
