The tall kid’s at school!
The Back to School routine wreaks havoc on this family. Because of the husband’s hours, we tend to eat late and go to bed late in the summer, and it’s a shock trying to return to responsible hours. Especially for me as I move almost totally to a second shift life, bordering on third at times, and now must go back to first. And the short kid will miss the tall kid desperately for a few days.
The short kid goes back next week, and then I’ll have three afternoons a week alone. I can’t wait.
But the tall kid and his friend arrived on time today, both fully dressed with summer reading projects and fully stocked backpacks in hand.
Time for my cookie.
(On the other hand, I have 7696 unread emails, so maybe Doritos would be better.)
