Isn’t that fascinating?
I just read somewhere that there are hundreds of thousands of words in the English language.
That’s a lot of words.
And with so many word choice possibilities…
I can usually think of something halfway intelligent to say.
Especially when it comes to writing.
But school started this week.
And, like my boys, I wasn’t really feeling it.
I’d been sick as a dog all week from all the summertime stress.
I mean, fun.
Yeah, summertime fun.
But sending my favorite monsters off with one of my infamous motivational lunch notes for the first day of school was simply a must.
Okay, so it wasn’t very subtle.
And it’s only a whopping two words in length.
But I’m not gonna lie.
I kinda like my kids.
(Shhhh! Don’t tell them!)
In the meantime, I’ll be drinking mimosas and sharpening boatloads of pencils while they’re at school.
Gotta get my money’s worth out of that automatic sharpener, right?
Oh, who am I kidding?
I managed to sharpen exactly 32 pencils before my hand cramped up to the point of being virtually nonfunctional.
And then I had to get back to attending to the never-ending mountain of laundry.
So long, summer fun.
It’s back to business, as usual.
~Happy Friday, friends! And… Happy Birthday to a very special 15 year-old (you know who you are)! Have a terrific weekend, everyone!~
