Bozo Picture of the Week...

It seems like forever since I posted last! Things around our house have been in upheaval since Hurricane Irene rolled through. For starters we lost power for two days. Then, because of all the damage it caused, and resulting power outages in our town, the first day of school was postponed for six days.
Now, for all of you mothers out there who consider having your children home with you all day a blessing...and, I know there's plenty of you out there...this was probably an occasion to rejoice over. But, for me? Not so much.
Now, don't get me wrong. There are things about Summer vacation I really love. Things like not having to pack lunches and generally having lazy mornings. No homework to talk my kids into doing, or sports to shuttle around to. Instead, there's trips to the pool, or beach...and having a tan on my typically pale body. I could go on...
All those lovely things aside, there's the constant refereeing...the endless whining...the yelling {theirs and mine}...the "he hit me", "he's not giving me a turn", and "do I have to?". Then, there's the fact that I can't get a thing done. My life has piled up around me, and getting around to tackling all that needs to be tackled is just something that hasn't been happening.
The thing is, it's been that way because we have been enjoying our Summer. Things that need to get done haven't in favor of having a fun day...and, that's okay. It's okay, because eventually school does start. And, finally, as of today, it has...and, I am very happy about it!
Will it take me some time to get used to this quiet house? No.

Your boys are adorable. My daughters started 3rd & 6th grade yesterday. It's quiet w/ them gone and I do miss them, but I'm finally checking email for the 1st time since um... yeah. And posting. etc. Life is good.

I can so relate. That's exactly how I feel. It feels good to actually be getting a few things started and finished all in the same day!
