The kids went to a 90 minute orientation today.
My son is now in 3rd grade and my daughter in 5th. This is supposed to make me happy, right?
My house is like a tomb, cold and quiet.
I thought my house would be empty when Kayla left for college. I am busier now than ever. Became a board member of a horse rescue, took in a homeless teen who I am homeschooling his senior year so he can get into USMC Officer Candidate School, and working my husband’s business. Life is overwhelming. None of my work actually pays any money, so I can’t even afford a damn maid.
I have a 3rd grader too. She came home today and said she already did her homework, after school, in study hall. Study hall? At 8?
Back to school ain’t all it’s cracked up to be. I miss the sleeping in. And the help with the baby.
I like quiet. And I like being able to go to yoga during the day and to write without interruption. I think the perception is all.
