This is the first time in 14 years that I have not had a child starting his first day back to school. No buying school supplies with all the procrastinators at Walmart yesterday! No kid bouncing in the back door this afternoon yelling “I’m home”.
Gotta get off that train of thought before I find myself in a puddle and I don’t feel like being in a puddle today.
We will have our first day of school, just a bit later. Both guys are in college this year, so we will have a significant first day. My living room has a pile of dorm stuff and the closet upstairs has all the stuff we’ve already used. This is such a different routine than getting my school list and finding all the goodies. My day was spent with a friend and her three little munchkins in the pool and inside afterwards watching and movie and just chillin. I needed it and I think she did too and it just occured to me that I did not take a single photo. Man, I am slipping – must be the weather.
Anyway, it seems that once school starts back, we’re on the fast track for the rest of the year and it zooms by soooo quickly. I am NOT in zoom mode yet and don’t want to get there. 😕 Nevertheless…………………..
