It can’t be – no really – this has to be a joke. Wednesday CAN NOT possibly be the last day of school this year! Bad enough that I had to
suffer sit through every freaking right of passage, award ceremony and class party for the past 2 weeks – now for the grand finale – Summer vacation! Let the bloodbaths & beatings begin! The mornings of “He farted, she took the remote, you are the meanest mommy in the world, it is vacation so I don’t have to do chores, I’m bored, it is too hot, he looked at me funny,” are going to become a reality this Thursday. Yeppers, yours truly, the blowing sunshine out my butt Princess of Positive will soon dive into a summer of fun in the sun with the rugmonsters! I’m sure that once vacation starts – things will be great. I just fear having them home with me 24-7 while trying to limit their TV, computer and Wii time and making them do fun things that will invade my tiny bubble of alone space that I enjoy the 5 days of week they are in school.
You know I am just playing with y’all – sort of. Summer will go by fast – as it usually does. I will spend the next 10 weeks entertaining the kids and being a mom (my full-time job that I also don’t get paid for) while drinking heavily after
12:00 5:00 each and every day. Summer vacation is about memories, growing, experiences, family bonding time (good or bad), and swimming. No school = what the kids look forward to all year. I pledge to make sure the kids have a great summer while trying to keep my sanity! School is out for Summer & we all better face it now!
