Today is Independence Day!
After three months of sleeping late, weekday sleepovers, all day tv, video games galore and asking me every five seconds "What are we doing today?" finally the kids are back in school.
The summer seemed to last forever. We did TWO sessions of sleepaway camp, one mini sleepaway camp, life in another state, a whole month back home swimming, hiking, cooking, anything and everything we could do to keep the kids busy.
But now they're at school and I'm FREEEEEEEE!!!!!!
This morning, I got home after dropping the kids off and the house was empty. Blissfully empty.
I almost didn't know what to do with myself. Then I remembered...grocery shopping, hanging shelves, organizing clothes, cleaning, cooking, writing two articles by 5 pm and bathing the guinea pigs, running carpools, and filling out back-to-school paperwork.
Yup. I can feel the freedom.
