School started today and it makes me so sad. Did the summer go faster than usual for everyone? I can hardly stand it and I certainly wasn't taking any pictures of the big day. It isn't really celebratory for me at all. My friend, Lisa, was writing on facebook about all of her homeschool preparations and I suddenly started to rethink that whole topic, but then did what I usually do which is go with the flow. This morning, however, the girls were annoying me quite a bit and the thought quickly crossed my mind that it might actually be nice to have them gone until I realized that they were only bugging me because they weren't getting ready for school and that contention is virtually nonexistent during summer vacation. Perhaps you should brush your hair? Did you brush your hair?? Have you brushed your hair yet??? Oh and the homework battles! Just shoot me now. It also means that the winter will be here soon. My stomach hurts.
We did have a great summer. There was a lot of hanging out and visiting; a few projects accomplished; no big exhausting voyages; and not even one single box of macaroni or package of ramen consumed = success!
Now I just need to think of some things to keep me busy. Heaven knows there is plenty of neglected corners around here to keep me occupied through the dark days ahead. I know -- I'll do something really fun like reorganize our files!
Oh, and did you brush your hair?
