Don't step on me. EXACTLY!!!
Aaahhhhh! This is my last day of work for about a week. This won't be one of those fancy-schmancy, traveling vactions. Instead it will be one of those staycations...you know, you are on vacation, but you stay at home...because you're superlame and cute little words are supposed to make you feel better about it. Um, yeah.
Really, though, this is just my chance to spend a little time with my kids before they go back to school next Tuesday. Tomorrow is they day they both need to turn in all their paperwork and get their schedules. Then I figure we'll have a few days to do a little shopping for supplies and an item of clothing or two. Handsome Lad is easy, but there is no way I am going to be able to make Girlie Girl happy as far as clothes go. It is like she wants this complete new wardrobe and it ain't happenin'. It's a money thing, of course, but it is also a reality check for her. The girl does not NEED a complete new wardrobe! She just WANTS a complete new wardrobe. So I won't feel too bad about just getting her what I can and then drawing the line.
I gave myself time to get them all situated...I'll be there to see how their first day of school went, on Tuesday. Then I gave myself Wednesday off as well, for good behavior. I figure I have it coming after the summer I've had! Which come to think of it hasn't been all that bad :-) In any event, it will be good to have some space between me and the library. A nice little breather. You might not see me around so much, although I will make every attempt to stop in and at least post a couple of things. It is marginally easier for me to use the internet at home nowadays, so I have that going for me. But if you don't see me commenting so much, don't hold it against me. And if you see me commenting as usual, you will know my vacation turned out to be even more relaxing than I thought!
