I see people on Facebook who live in other parts of the country who are already out of school.
I want to be done with school.
The thing is, as a teacher (and before that as a student), there was closure. You cleaned out the desk, locker, backpack, etc. You took down the bulletin boards. You boxed up the stuff and shoved everything to one corner.
And you were done.
You could drive away and feel free.
Our homeschool room is A MESS. We will still do some school stuff in the summer. And I just don't feel free. I really really want to pack it up and clean if off and be DONE. Then I think I could feel like summer was here. I guess I will do that on Friday. (Thursday is our last day.)
On another note, my new housework schedule is working out great! I love it!!! Yesterday I worked in the kitchen and dining room. Today was errand day. I don't worry about the other things because I know their day is coming. The girls have been cleaning up the living room each day. (It really IS all their stuff like I thought.) It's great. I think it will really help me keep up. Still, I'm really looking forward to waking up and having the whole day to do what needs to be done. I'm going to give us all a week or two off before I start doing any complicated summer activities. Just let 'em play. Then we'll start being more purposeful with our days.
Thank you to everyone for the congratulations on our great news. I am so excited and cannot wait to see the little heartbeat and be assured that everything is going as it should. I don't really feel pregnant except all the naps I've been taking. I usually hate naps. It is unfathomable to me that I worked up until the day I had the other two. I am very thankful to be home this time and be able to rest when needed. Very thankful indeed.
So....when does your summer start....if you have one?
