176 down, 3½ to go!
Days of school, that is.
My oldest son and I discussed this over breakfast the other morning.
Can you believe it? You only have only a few more days of school! Where has the time gone?
He thought about it for a moment, before providing his honest input:
Down the toilet?
It’s been yet another enjoyable year of school-related fun, between emails, phone calls, and general chaos as usual.
We’re all tired of the crazed school morning hustles, and afternoons filled with homework that none of us seem to have enough brain cells to sufficiently decipher.
We all need a break.
I need a break.
It’s so much easier to get myself up and off to work at 3 am than it is to get two zombie kids out of bed and out the door in time for school.
The leftover breakfast carnage of overturned yogurt cups, toast crusts, and banana peels has long gotten old.
And I’m running out of lunch box ideas.
A water bottle and a chocolate bar?
Or maybe that box of powdered sugar that’s been sitting on the counter since last Christmas?
How’s that for a treat?
Well, one thing is for certain:
I may not always know what to pack for lunch, but I sure don’t lack creativity!
Nothing spreads joy (or concern) faster than my good old lunch notes!
(Run, unicorns! Run!)
~Happy Friday, everyone! For those of you with school-aged kids, you may want to take a moment to indulge in a stiff drink or two before school is out. You know, for sanity’s sake. Have a great weekend!~
