8 days and counting!!!

I guess technically I should say 7 days, since it's 1:15am.

What am I counting? Days until my kids go back to school!! It's 1:15am and I finally got my last 2 kids to 1:15AM!!! The last couple of weeks have been really, really bad regarding sleeping! They are going non-stop from 8am until AT LEAST 11pm. I consider it AWESOME if they are all asleep by 11pm! But tonight, 1:15am, is definately the latest. Then dh wonders why Im still up at 2am (or later) getting shit done around the house.

The local pool closed for the year last Saturday. We went for a couple hours and we were very disappointed that they didn't have the slides going. I guess several of the lifeguards had already left for college (etc) and they were short staffed. It sucked, and we didn't stay long because my kids were pretty bored.

It's only Monday and I can already tell this is going to be the longest week of my life since the pool is closed. UGH!

Woooohoooo!!!! Get those kiddos off to school, and then take a few days to READ. :)

Because that's the answer to everything, right?
