My week’s are always super crazy. This is nothing new, but there are some spaces for me to do regular things like go to the dry cleaners and to a doctor. Usually, I don’t have time for even that. It’s week 6 in my semester. I think that by week 8 or 9 I might actually be able to go on a walk with my husband in the morning (family time and exercise combined).
Here’s what week 6 looks like:
