I thought our summer was going so well. I was looking forward to the rest of it, and the adventures yet to be had.
Yesterday I snapped. I am like DONE with being mom, making food, cleaning (NOT actually) house, having kids just not obeying at ALL. Add to it the fact that nothing work-wise has picked up (perhaps the real source of my discontent), and I made a complete 180 degree turn from being so happy it was summer and happy we still had some more left, to the first day of school couldn't come any sooner.
I might just need a break from the kiddos. My friend must have ESP, like she predicted this would happen this week, only knew LAST week...on Friday she asked if she could take my kids for a day THIS week. How can I say no? And it's tomorrow and tomorrow couldn't come any quicker.
I actually told my children today their job was to find a new mom. They thought I was joking, no, not teasing, and their feelings were hurt, but, ha-ha that's so funny mom!
All I want to do is sit on my couch and read Harry Potter #7 (I am about 3/4 done) and Julie and Julia (I love it so far, I have been to all the places she goes to, and I can really relate to her life!). I am going to treat myself to seeing the film as soon as I can, Times Traveler's Wife too.
Ok. 4 weeks until the first day. I can do this. I CAN do this.
