It’s Happened

I’m admitting defeat. The urchins are driving me crazy and I cannot wait for them to go back to school. Cannot wait. I know that sounds terrible but hey, it’s the truth. Luckily my mother-in-law is arriving on Thursday for a visit. Now we all need to just make it until then.


Yesterday I did get a quick break to have coffee without my darling children. The best part was that I had coffee with Melissa who was in the area visiting some of her college friends. I totally lost track of time just chatting it up with her. So fun! And she was the sweetest and brought me this little vase, perfect for holding a single bloom. Like the kind your kids pick when they are trying to get back on your good side.

    I know the feeling. The lack of schedule is nice but the lack of schedule is driviing me nuts too.

    Is this the year that Katrina starts Kindergarten?

    I know that ‘ready to go back’ feeling and I’m a teacher! Tomorrow I am going out to have coffee with a friend who is in town. Just reading your post gets me excited!

    tee hee. School started today. But it’s staggered enrollment, so he’s not supposed to go tomorrow, but they asked if I “needed” him to go. I said yes!
    LOVED spending some time with you! Beautiful picture!

    I am anxiously awaiting the start of school. The “I’m bored”, “What are we doing today?”, “Can I go to a friend’s house?”, “Can a friend come over?” is almost over! Of course when they start back, as do I. But back into the regular routines is what I’m looking forward to.
