First day down...

The kids first day of school has now come and gone. I think I would have preferred they go the entire day instead of only a half day, but I think I will survive. I got several things done today that would have taken me quite a while longer had they been here, with the Mom...Mom....Mom... I secretly love to hear them say that though. Both of them seem to have enjoyed their classes. Neither of them complained about much. Opal's lunch isn't until 11:55 - 12:15. That's a little late, but he usually eats a good breakfast. All in all, I think it was a good first day.

I am half way excited about the fact that I get to go to the grocery store tomorrow. I know that almost sounds psychotic, being excited about the grocery store, but I get to go by myself. No husband, no kids, just me and my cart and, of course, my trusty list. That, might I add, is conveniently posted in my planner via Post-It. I do plan on AVOIDING the school/office supply aisle this time around because I am going alone and I may enter one end and not exit the other. Got to keep it simple. 'Cause ya know we're ballin' on a budget. :)

Well, off to watch some Olympics and hit the hay early.


  1. Damn. I forgot highlighters again. How am I ever going to be able to steal your idea that you stole from someone else if I can't remember the essentials... ductape and a shovel... no wait, highlighters and post-it notes. :)

  2. Yeah, no one asked for my opinion on the "get out of school at 1:00pm every Friday" thing we have here in this county, 'cause you know I would've voted no.
