Routine is my lifesaver. When school starts, my eldest goes back to college, my (disabled) teen starts high school, and I go back into the classroom, too. We depend on routine to keep us sane and get everything done. Morning routine: creakfast (together), then teen on the bus, then straight to school for me. This extra morning time built into my routine is another lifesaver; it allows me to leave right after school.
