Didja Miss Me???

Yeah, yeah, I'm sure you all did. The kids and I have been in Idaho this past week, and I've just gotten away to blog.
This is the first time I have gone somewhere with the kids and Hubby hasn't joined us, but we figured "what the hell why not" because the kids aren't in school yet.
We fly back to Denver tomorrow, and I get to start getting them ready for school. Kindergarten, second grade and third grade. My, how time has flown! All my babies will be in school! Whatever will I do with myself? Sit in their empty rooms and hold their baby blankets and cry? Break out the photo albums and a hefty bowl of icecream?
Well, more likely, after I've finished turning cartwheels for an entire hour, I'll clean my house from top to bottom and write. That's what I need to do. I know which novel to work on, and I'll be danged if I don't have it completed before Christmas.

*sigh*. Summer is almost over. Sure, I enjoy these lazy days, but I'm all for education. *wink*

We're off to the pool and then to see Monster House. Have a great weekend, all, and I'll be back Monday!

Welcome back - glad you had a good time!
(I know around the beginning of August, my sister, with two kids, becomes madly in favor of "education"!!!)

Welcome back! And of course we missed you! Let me know how Monster House is, my baby wants to go see it and I'm not sure how appropriate it is for an almost-5-year-old. And speaking of, he starts kindergarten too! *waa*

Monster House freaked my kids out. But they loved it. There's a lot of innuendo that would be lost on smaller children, but enough Scare Factor to scare the pee out of them. Bottom line: if your kid is tough...take 'em. If not, I'd wait. :-)

Hooray! An honest mother! When my kids were growing up people used to look at me like I was some kind of monster because I wasn't sobbing and clinging to their legs as they got on the school bus. My kids are grown now and have always appreciated the fact that I had an identity other than just "mom".
