FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL!!!

Imagine me singing the title. I couldn't figure out the html code to put little musical notes around the title, because I'm html-challenged. :-D

The kids actually sprang out of bed like springs when I woke them up at 6:30. They were so dang excited. I didn't make them take the bus this morning (yes, I was feeling generous)--I drove them instead. We snapped lots of pics and made sure they had everything.

Of course I found Thing Two's shiny new homework planner sitting on my bed, so I had to turn back around and run it to school for him. Yeah, I was thinking that too. NICE START to the year.

But then the baby and I ran and got groceries, because he was literally wearing his last diaper (I even rummaged through the diaper bag--but no luck) and he hadn't done his morning well...poop.

So, we're all stocked up now and I don't know what to do with myself, and all this quiet. Well, I do have quite a list of things to do, I just don't know if I want to do them. Part of me wants to just lay around like a slug and eat bonbons all day (KIDDING!) and another part of me wants to go running with the jogging stroller, clean the whole house and finish all the edits on my story.

I think I'll opt for the latter. I just need to get some breakfast in me, and I'll have more energy.

Eight hours of quiet! What will I do???

(Then, of course all hell will break loose because the kids will come home, we'll have to run to soccer practice, then to the church for Cub scouts and Girls activity days. Yep it will be more like NORMAL!)

No excuses, missy, you have 8 hours of heavenly quiet! ;)
