We started last night with getting Michael back on to his school night's bedtime schedule and I sat and configured bird and dog feeding times for the morning, then my breakfast and workout times, which will have me home and showered before it's time to get Michael out the door for the bus after which I can scoot over to Walmart and Aldi's, still early enough to avoid the crazy Walmart crowds, and home again to clean (and write!) Yay! I'm sooo ready!!
I'm also ready to have the peace and quiet of the weekdays with Michael at school and the dogs all contentedly sleeping with no one here to chase them around or agitate them out of boredom. It's so much easier to get my To Do list accomplished without the constant badgering of summer-"What are we gonna do today?" Like I'm the cruise director. Or worrying about where Michael took off to on his bike since I hadn't seen or heard him for the past several minutes. He'll be at school all day. He won't be roaming the neighborhood, looking for someone to play with, or whining because he's mad at one of the neighbor kids, and I won't have to come up with plans to entertain him, that's what they pay his teacher for the rest of the year. Hallelujah!
Am I rushing the season wanting to start my Christmas planning already? Maybe. Maybe it's just been a long summer and I'm ready for a break. I'm tired of the arguing and whining and telling Michael for the six millionth time to leave the dogs alone, get off the computer, go outside, wash his hands, make his bed, get in the tub, go to sleep...Yeah, I'm ready...two more days...two more days...
