A quick note today because it is the first day of school for the kids. Even though JMumbo was angry we cut his outside time short last night for a shower (what were we thinking, wanting him clean for the first day?), and M&M is a too cool for words 8th grader, they are ready to begin again. As mom, I am ready for real routine and consistency. I know it will be crazy and busy, but the laid back philosophy of summer wears me out sometimes. I want some quiet time at night when the kids go to bed before I do. I want dinner around the same time every night. I want fall shows to begin on TV and to use my slow cooker for scrumptious meals. I’m more ready than they are to head back even after wondering where the summer went. See you after the bell rings!
