Turning Inward

habitably Life as a working mom can get overwhelming, particularly in September. The Meet the Teacher Night/Curriculum Night and meet the parents mixers along with book parties for all of the new fall titles, while fun and enervating, can also quickly become
exhausting. During the weeks when I have events three nights out of 5, I cherish my nights at home, talking with my kids, watching the news and hunkering down with a new book. In anticipation of reading the new Margaret Atwood title, I recently got The Handmaid’s Tale which I’ve never read (nor watched…I know, crazy!) and am looking forward to cracking it open tonight.
