What free time looks like:
(Not sure what happened to Shoo’s picture and I don’t have time to fix it right now.)
Yesterday was a day that was 10 years in coming. Both boys were in all day school. That is now my new “normal.” It was a weird day. It was both too long and too short. I didn’t accomplish as much as I’d like because the “I only have 12 hours ALL week to accomplish EVERYTHING” urgency was gone. The house was too quiet. I’m not used to being by myself in my house for 5 hours (I went to a couple of mom get togethers in the morning). Apparently I blog better in chaos because I could come up with nothing to say yesterday. I need to come up with a routine.
On the bright side:
- Both boys loved their teachers
- I got a very short run in that didn’t hurt much
- I reorganized our storage room
- I had champagne at 9 am
Shoo came home with way too much excess energy. Despite the rain, I sent him outside to run laps around the house. Oy. I think it’s going to be a very good thing that we plan to bike to and from school starting next week!
How was your first day of school? (Or day after Labor Day back to reality?)
