Over and done with all ready? How can that be?

The kids spent all day yesterday finishing their summer reading and summer homework. And why?

Because they go back to school TOMORROW and for some reason we waited until the last minute to get it all done.  (Poor mothering at it's finest, I suppose.  Although, one could say that now they will better remember the books when they do their projects on them and/or take tests on them in the coming days. That's what I'm going with anyway.)

Summer is over and really, to me it seems like it just started. (Which my be part of the reason we got a little behind on the summer homework.)

I'll admit, I'm a little wistful.  It's going to be quiet around here tomorrow and I'm going to miss those kids. But don't worry about me -  I've got big plans. I'm heading to Target alone

And as much as I'm going to miss those kids, I'm going to enjoy pushing a big red cart happily around that store all by myself. 

Nothing like drowning your sorrows with a little retail therapy.  And before long, the kids will be in the backseat of the car heading home.  There will be bickering, fighting and complaining and all will be right in my little world again.

I can't believe it's this time of year either. Around here school doesn't start until after Labor Day, but I still wasn't ready for it to start when my kids were that age.
