Well, my bulletin boards are up, my new clothes are in my closet, and I have the dinner menu planned for next week.
School is starting.
Our workdays start on Monday and the kids come on Thursday. Summer is officially over. Gone are the days of sleeping in until 9, having corndogs for breakfast because it sounds good, and staying in my pajamas all day cause I want to. (Yeah, I know...this is my life before kids.)
This summer I have painted five rooms, moved my mother into my house until she finds something and attended four weddings. One is today, and I need to get off this couch and into the shower or I am gonna be late.
I know many of you are excited about the school year and the peace it will bring your days. I think many of the bloggers that I read are stay at home moms and I know you will be cheering as the bus rounds the corner and stops at your driveway.
Take a moment to pray for those teachers. These men and women will spend more waking hours with your kids than you will this year. They will nurture them, feed them, teach them, love them and be there for them in a way that is different from a parent. I always feel honored that parents are turning their darlings over to me each day, trusting their children will be loved in my presence.
Many of you are homeschool moms. Bravo. I don't think I could do it. Not at all. Bravo.
So, Monday morning the alarm will go off at 6:45 and I will be on my way. Lunch packed and water bottle handy. Monday will probably be a day for caffeine, which I eschew most days. A nice mocha latte or a Pepsi will be a great jolt about 2pm.
After this wedding today I am going to get back into my pajamas, eat the cake I bring home with me, and watch more Olympics. Then I might stay up late, eat popcorn and finish rereading Eclipse. Because Monday is gonna come that quickly.
