Omg, am I the only one who is suddenly SOOOOO ready to go back to work? Seriously, I love my kids, we had an awesome summer hanging out together. However, they have REALLY tested my patience these last few days. I don’t know… could it be that they know a transition is coming? That our lives will go from being lazy-cuddle-in-bed-with-mom-while-dad-goes-off-to-work days to you-have-five-minutes-to-finish-your-breakfast-and-get-dressed-for-school kind of days? A friend mentioned that there is a full moon coming up. Any teacher I know knows that full moons always affect kids in school. I checked. Full moon on Wednesday. That must be it.
Either way, I had a glass of wine at dinner tonight. Now, I’m wishing they would go to sleep early so that I can too. This way I can get an early start tomorrow in order to get a parking spot at the high school for the district meeting for the teachers. If you get there after 7:30, you won’t get a spot. I’m not kidding. Over three thousand teachers with their cars, vying for that last parking spot – it’s not pretty. Ok, if I leave here at 6:50, I can get there by 7:10. That should give me time to snag one of the few remaining… and then realize that I miss summer vacation and the kids….
