quick, it's the last day of vacation!

It's been a busy week of starting school, new routines and never ending football practice but it has worked out well. Even better? Not being a work ( in case you were fooled into thinking I liked working), I never want to go back. Ever. Being able to be a mom waiting for her little one to bust out of the school doors is awesome. Not having to fly home from work to get to dinner and football practice on time is just like heaven(cue the cure song now). Feeling like I have a moment to breathe...outstanding.

I suppose all great things such as vacations must end so I give you as many random thoughts as I can in 10 minutes before the school bell rings!

*My new puppy hates me. I miss Chester.
*JC has already started the 2008-2009 homework off whining. It's gonna be a long time to get him in a routine for homework again.
* I have said put your shoes on about 10 times in 3 minutes.
*I haven't had a period since... wow, I lost count at 50 days.
*My car is incredibly dirty and cluttered since football started. You wanna come vacuum it out for me? I'll bake you cookies or give you cookie dough. (it's a bit easier)
*I am looking forward to fall in the worst way. Cool breeze, the colors, leaves. LOVE IT.
*Today I am taking photographs of a friends daughter and grandbaby. I hope I do well.
*My vacation has been full of errands and laundry, I like it better than work.
* My feet are swollen
*The dog just went pee on my living room floor...again.
*Off to school, dry cleaners, pet store, photo shoot, your grandma's house and then back to school again...


Have a great Friday!

****The photo shoot went well, over 600 photos, check out my flickr!****

I just realized you were on vacation this week...duh! Maybe you could get a job as a traveling nurse and do home healthcare and be home when school is over. Just a thought. Enjoy your last day of vacation...It's beautiful outside.

I know what you mean about not wanting to go back after vacation. Not that I'm complaining, but having the summer off makes it so hard to go back. I just get fooled into thinking that I get to stay home and always be there when BAM, it's time to go back. Somehow, two months just flies by.

I need to start reading your blog because Steph and Mimi always have great things to say about you. So, here I am! I love your post. I am a teacher, and there are days that I don't really like my job either. There are days I wonder why I chose teaching over nursing, but hey, I guess all jobs have downfalls!

Enjoy your Friday!

I'm so sorry you are so unhappy at your job. That makes going back after vacation so much worse.

Aren't I just a little ray of sunshine?

I feel the same way when I have to go back to work after vacation. It is one of the curses of being a working mother!
