A Regular Schedule (sort of)

Here we are, vacation is over for one kid and soon to be over for another (Tuesday). Heaven forbid they keep it simple, you know? Because my son had a snow day the last day before Christmas break, he has the last day of finals to make up tomorrow. The next day will be an adjusted (and partially shortened day) with the first full day of classes on Thursday. While it was nice having them home, I'm looking forward to things getting back to "normal." I've put so much stuff on the back burner there's no room to cook (if you know what I mean ... and I think you do!)

Please note that I am not saying I was looking forward to getting up at 5:50 a.m. to get the school day started. "Mr. Nocturnal," our hamster, was still wheeling away. He gave me a dirty look as if to say, "Hey, lady, this is my time. It's still dark. Go back to bed." I wish I could honor that request JoJo (did I ever mention that he's named after Joe Jonas of the Jonas Brothers?? NOT my idea... OR WAS IT?????), but the school bus waits for no one (it really doesn't), so up we were. 

I did get one (EXTREMELY grumpy) kid out the door. I can't wait for tomorrow when my other one, who isn't exactly a morning person (his non-school day starts with a 1 p.m. wakeup), needs to rise and "shine" (by shine I mean I walk in and say "get up" and he says, "whaaaaattttt?????) by 7 a.m. 

Wait.... didn't I say I was looking forward to this week? Scratch that. I've officially talked myself out of it. How long 'til spring break? I'm serious..... 

Hold on tight. It's gonna be a bumpy ride! Hope YOUR week goes smoothly!

Mornings are tough! I hope that my girls remain earlybirds when they start school!

My oldest son was a GRUMP this morning too! I think I heard him growling at me as he walked down the sidewalk to get the bus! LOL!

LOL!! This is EXACTLY what I was thinking too!! I was so excited to get some peace and quiet, and actually get something accomplished today, BUT after getting up before my roosters are even crowing, makes me want to nap all day!! And we are having a dreary, cold day here....hmmm, seems like napping weather to me!! Thanks for the laugh!!

LOL Cindy. I think we are all ready for things to get back to some sort of "normalcy" - what ever that is these days. I enjoyed having my teenager home with me but let's face it - they eat out of pure boredom and I was getting tired of standing in the kitchen and cooking the entire break. At least he left for school this morning with a pleasant look on his face. LOL.
