'Twas The Night Before School
I'm exhausted, but I'm almost too excited to sleep. I feel like a kid on Christmas Eve. Why, in the middle of April, do I feel like this? My kids are going back to school tomorrow. They were out for Spring Break, and then today was a teacher work day, so they've been home for a whopping 10 days. It's been a lot of togetherness for us all, so tomorrow will be just as good for them as it will be for me. The one thing that concerns me is summer is a hell of a lot longer than Spring Break. My saving grace is that I will either be in class all day Thursdays and Fridays, or I might be working full-time, depending on how things go. Regardless I will have at least a weekly break, unlike last year, when I was ready to throw in the towel by July. Don't get me wrong, I love my children. I'm just not the Suzy Homemaker type that is able to be a fantabulous mom with unlimited patience and creativity, and the ability to keep a clean house while entertaining the children simultaneously. But, I have another month and a half to prepare for that. Until then, I will enjoy my day of solitude by indulging in chick flicks, a nap, a bath, and whatever else I can squeeze in before 2:45 p.m.
