Today is the first day of school. Normally, I would be counting the days (from way back in July) until school starts. I would be packing backpacks a couple of days before. I would be itching to see that yellow bus. But, not this year. For some reason, I just was not ready for school to start!
It may have a lot to do with the fact that now that Connor is driving, I really didn't have a busy summer. I took Colby to his lessons or practices; but, not having to shuttle Connor around made my summer SO easy! He even worked this summer -- a lot -- so he was rarely around. That really helped on the whole brother's fighting thing! Plus, Colby is a huge helper. He washed my car, helped me clean the house and put away laundry. He was even my lunch date on many days.
Yep, I didn't want school to start! But it did.
Today is my normal "domestic" day, as I call it -- cleaning, laundry, grocery shopping. Today also confirmed for me that something may be amiss with me... As I called several friends to see how their mornings went, no one was home to talk... As I walked around Walmart getting groceries, there were only moms with toddlers...
Where were all the moms today??? Apparently I did not celebrate appropriately!
However, there is always tomorrow. :0)
