Bleh. Summer came and went so fast I didn’t even remember to sunscreen my kids more than twice. But it’s over, the weather is crap, and I hauled my pathetically protesting butt out of bed at 7 a.m. (in the MORNING!) and hauled my pathetically protesting kids out of their beds too. I fried eggs and toasted toast and brewed tea and poured orange juice and packed lunches and argued about who would wear what and hustled the kids out the door, just barely in time, I thought.
Yeah, I was wrong. A bit. Turns out, they were early.
About 24 hours early.
Jeeeeeeeeez. You know, if I had any friends in this damn town, I would have known that school doesn’t actually start until tomorrow. But I don’t. So I didn’t.
Song du jour of the day: Everybody Plays the Fool, by Aaron Neville. Which should comfort me, but it doesn’t.
