|Again, with the blurriness! I KNOW! It's a PHONE, people! Sheesh! What do you expect?|
The end of summer.
The end of it all.
The end of the quiet mornings where I can have my coffee in peace; left alone to catch up on blogs, read the paper and do whatever it is I want in TOTAL silence.
Ahhh, how I relish the silence of those quiet mornings.....
No. It's all over. Tomorrow is the first day of school.
The first day of trying to wake up a grouchy kid (who, incidentally decided it would be a good idea to go out the night before the first day - using the "but MOM! The Giants are playing! And you KNOW we don't get those games here!" excuse. Fine. I let him go with the stipulation that he had to be home by 10:00 pm. You and I both know that whether or not he goes out; he STILL won't be asleep before midnight or later anyway).
The first day of "I forgot! I need lunch money!" or "I forgot! I need you to fill out this field trip form!" or "I forgot! Can you help me format this 15 page paper - that is due TODAY - this morning?"
The first day - of the LAST year - of having him home to drive me insane in the early morning hours.
Ya know? After looking at it like that....I'm gonna miss those early morning moments of insanity....
