Hello all! I took a slightly longer vacation from here then I expected! Shortly after writing the last post about not having any cable/internet access, the green light came on, literally the green light on whatever the heck that little white box with an apple on it plugged into the cable, is called. But as much as my heart jumped with excitement that we were connected to the world again, I just couldn’t pull myself to sit and write a post. Not that I haven’t had so many things swirling around my head, I seriously need one of those tape recorders that writers and news people carry around because I can’t remember half of the great ideas I have, but just because I didn’t feel that urge to! I kinda enjoyed the time off and I really didn’t use my computer much any way. Although, my poor computer is on it’s death bed and I have to hold it at just the right angle to actually use it and see anything on the screen, I didn’t feel like battling it. So there it sat, collecting dust under the couch! Which is such a faux pas in the blogging world – not writing on your blog for multiple days or weeks – gasp!
I have to say, the laziness of summer is upon our household. Actually, I don’t think it’s laziness (maybe with Evan it’s laziness which is for another post some day) I just think, that with the trips to the pool, parks and the heat, the boys and I are done! Don’t get me wrong, I’m not ready for summer to end quite yet. Evan has only 4 weeks until school starts, and I’m not quite ready to kick him back into school, although him and I are butting heads quite a lot lately, I still am enjoying the flexibility of the summer!
I know a few of my friends are ready for school to start because the kids are driving them bonkers! Some days, like yesterday, I was ready for school to start again and the structure that comes with it. Our day yesterday consisted of the boys doing the complete opposite of everything I asked them/told them to do. As if they woke up yesterday and thought to themselves, “let’s put mom over the edge today by disobeying at every opportunity. And to make it even better, let’s disagree and argue with everything she says.” Have you ever had one of those days with your kids? I can usually handle that from one of them, but they tag teamed yesterday and won! Throw in the fact that I haven’t had a full night’s sleep in like forever and I was completely frazzled by 3:00!
I guess, with the calendar staring at me every time I enter the kitchen, I know the next few weeks are going to fly by and school will be here before I know it! So I am digging in my heels and hoping to slow it down just for a little bit longer! But then again, maybe it’s not the fact that the boys are heading back to school another year older, but the fact that I have to go back to school myself to get my teaching license renewed. The plan right now is to start subbing this year while I’m getting my class work done, so that when Carter starts to school, I’m ready to reenter the work force. I have some mixed emotions about all of this, to be honest! So maybe there are multiple things pulling me into wanting the summer to last just a little bit longer!
So for now, I am going to keep my lazy going and TRY to enjoy the little rugrats for a few more weeks! How about you? Are you ready for school to start or are you wanting the summer to slow down?
