I know what you’re thinking. No, it’s not the final Friday of the month (when I normally do my Final Friday post). Today is the final Friday of my precious summer vacation. Such a bittersweet day, it is. I guess it’s true what they say. All good things do come to an end, huh?
I loathe the fact that I can no longer sleep until I decide it’s time to get up. I now have to obey my alarm clock. I now have to live my life strictly according to my Cozi calendar so as not to miss any important meetings, deadlines, events or the like. I now have to check backpacks every evening to make certain that the “I don’t have any homework” declarations are indeed true. I have to prepare lunches each night before going to bed. I have to make wardrobe choices at night to avoid any potential last-minute morning mishaps that threaten my chances of getting everyone to their designated locations at just the right time. I have to make arrangements to get this kid to practice and pick this one up. Order this one’s costumes, pick up a poster for this project, send in money for this field trip, buy a t-shirt for this and that, and I’m sure that I’ve left out something.
So, how will I spend my final Friday? Shopping? Hanging with friends? Relaxing on the couch? Nope. None of the above. I’m spending my final Friday of summer…(drum roll please)…working in my classroom!
Enjoy your Friday!
So, I pondered all day and I think I’ve finally found my niche. A little self-reflection led me to change the name of my blog to something simple and fun—Diva on the Run! Merriam-Webster dictionary defines a diva as a woman who is a successful, glamorous personality. I’ll take that. And I will definitely take the “on the run” part. I’m a married mother of two who works full time and at any given point in the year, I might have two additional part-time jobs. Oh, and I’m also in the final semester of completing my second graduate degree. So it goes without saying that my life is busy, as so many of you can relate to. But, I still like to look good. I mean, who doesn’t? But with my schedule being so busy, I have to find innovative ways to incorporate a beauty and fashion regimen that meets the high standards of fashion and beauty critics alike. It’s a challenge, but not one that’s too big for the self-professed Diva on the Run!
