Today (finally) was the first day of school for my kids!
Can you believe how late they went back this year?
It’s usually the day or two after Labor Day but not this year…
That extra week was wonderful in so many ways, and torture in so many other ways. You moms all know what I mean! We have been going non-stop for so long. I felt like I couldn’t sit still right up until the minute my boys climbed those stairs onto the bus.
I can hear every bird, every car that drives by. My windows are all open and I can even here the breeze blowing through the trees every now and then. It’s so strange to have this stillness. Sure, I ran around doing my usual morning cleaning, laundry, etc as soon as the kids left. But now, it is just SO quiet!
Even Rosie has taken this time to relax….
I found her dozing in the front of the house.
I am not thrilled that she is laying in the mulch but oh well.
She does look happy doesn’t she?
I can’t decide if I am happy or sad. I kind of miss all the craziness. Well, maybe not too much. I sure am enjoying this peaceful few minutes of drinking my tea and sitting on the computer in silence! I do have to leave in a few minutes to meet with some people regarding the annual school event I co-chair each year. Let the craziness begin again!
At least I am enjoying these few minutes of quiet time….
How is your Monday going so far?
