I think I’m in denial. I have so many excuses for it. Perfect post for manic monday. Tomorrow school starts here and it’s a crazy year…
1. It’s our daughters senior year. Does this really need any other explanation?
2. Our son is a freshman, so moves up to high school. It’s my baby, again no explanation should be necessary right? I mean come on. Both my babies are in high school and about to show me they don’t need me.
3. Son has first high school football game. Ok, I’ll explain a little. I love sports. I bet you didn’t know that right? He’s got our competitive nature. (yeah!) I worry about him having a good game. I know he kicks ass, I just don’t want him disappointed in himself. Goodness, he was so down when the varsity lost last Friday and he didn’t even play!
4. Structure. I’m going to have to get some again. Actually the structure of them having a schedule really helps me be more productive as well. A lot less…SQUIRREL….happens. Damn waking up from the summer crazy takes some work.
Usually I’d be posting how getting up earlier will suck but I’ve been getting up at 6:50 all summer to get the boy to football practice. So I know I can do it without going back to bed. Well, I can go back to bed AFTER I get them off to school so I know I can make it up at least that early right? lmao
So off we go. One step closer to being an empty nester. That would be MY retirement. From the job I’ve worked 24/7/365 for 17 years now. Too bad I won’t be able to afford a killer retirement party since I’ll have 2 kids in college :/
PS – This post is from 2012, almost to the day. I’m in retirement Momma’s! It’s a rough transition, I have a boook with some tips to help through the craziness.
