Yesterday was the first day of school. The kids were happy about it. Surprisingly, I was not.How did this happen?
If I hop in my time machine and set it back a year or two, the first day of the school was magical for me. The summer was long, and they drove me crazy. I couldn’t wait for peace and quiet. To reclaim my sanity.
I don’t know how I wasn’t bald from pulling out my hair by the time they went back…
This year, it is like we blinked. Summer is over. No one wanted to go back.
Now I miss them. Not that I didn’t miss them before. They are actually less of a pain in the butt now, we have fun! We had fun before, but now they are a bit older.
Kids are so much fun. No matter what age they are. I love children. But as they grow older, more independent and mature, I think they cooperate more.
Even though my son is a teenager now… Thirteen. Everything is changing for him. Feeling so many things at the same time, and it is new and exciting growing up, learning new things, noticing the world around you in ways you haven’t before– yet so very weird.
My daughter has a little ways to go before she reaches that age. Thank God! She is eight. Tells me she promises not to be anything like her brother who wants to stay in his room 24/7, and be moody. Right!
I always thought girls were worse. That was until I had a boy in middle school last year. Now I am not sure.
With the children in school now, I can get back to my routine in the morning with writing. This excites me! I was up early all summer, but didn’t quite get to do what I wanted with my writing. Which was disappointing.
I started two new writing classes. I polished up my health blog– which will be moving to my own website– I am ecstatic over that! Full of ideas with what I what to do there.
Now I have to fix up this one, and get moving again. Those are my plans for fall. Fix this baby up, get my website moving, work on my website, and get writing every day.
I did write this morning while sitting on my porch drinking coffee listening to music. A beautiful morning to sit outside with the wind blowing gently, and the birds keeping me company. The leaves are already starting to fall. Can’t believe it.
