eating Bon-bons...

Is there even such a thing as a chocolate free Bon-bon...  I know, you all shudder to think...

With all five kids in school there have been a few moments of silence around here.  I've spent more time than I should have doing things of little importance... and yes, I've even been bored.

Somebody tell me though - what is it about September First that makes everyone think "okay, time to get started!" ?  really...  it must be some mind-set because I have been invited to FIVE meetings tomorrow. 

I'd explain them all in detail - but I tried that and it turned out not to be all that interesting...  maybe sometime when everyone needs a nap?

Maybe I'll bring my travel pillow and grab my own nap at one of the meetings

I had forgotten that being a Stay at home Mom was such an active profession!  I don't know that I've been able to stay home an entire day yet  - I think I'm more of a RALACWYHCO(run around like a chicken with your head cut off Mom. 

until later... much, much, MUCH later...

Sounds very stressful!

Amen.

I remember at the start of summer break when my kids commented to me about how much I was gone during the day. Probably because they were babysitting all the time... I guess they assumed I sat at the door pining for them until the school bus pulled up every afternoon. Who knew a SAHM's life was busy? No bon bons here--though that's sounding awfully good... Nope, not today; gotta meet with the high school guidance counselor to repair a senior's mangled schedule. good times.

Try hard to enjoy your BOREDOM!!!! The meetings and first of the year stuff will be over soon and THEN you can enjoy all the homework!

You should go over to the chocolate chip waffle--methinks that hast won a book.

Lisa said...

AMEN, AMEN AND AMEN. All of which are imperative. And usually an enormous waste of time. Take your phone off the hook.

I am feeling your pain...

Saimi said...

My kiddies are all grown now, and I'm still running around like a chicken with my head cut off. Writing, promotion and blogging fill my days. All of which are wonderful and fun, but I do miss the kids needing me. Now, you were talking about bon bons... I really could use one.

I think I am in the car more than the house! Definitely the chicken with the head cut off syndrome! People ask, what do you do all day? What don't I do? I reply
