'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.
