It's only the third day and I need a vacation

So school has been back in for three days and I am already to go back on summer vacation.

Everything has been great up to this point, R1 is adjusting to Jr. High very well. I'm not but that's a story for another day. R2 loves his teacher and comes home telling stories about things that happened during the day.

But me, this being on a schedule again has kicked my butt! I could fall into bed every night at 8pm. I seriously don't know who has been more tired, me or the kids.

They go to bed at 9 every night and so far, knock on wood, they go right to sleep.

So I'm hoping I can get to bed tonight at a decent hour, like 7pm. Just kidding. Maybe.

Oh and just to put this out there. I thought all fees at the beginning of the school year were crazy for elementary school. Jr. High has totally blown that thought out of the water.

In just the past few days I had to pay for a Baritone mouth piece, band fee, book fee, gym uniform, and lock for a locker. WHEW! Can you say the money tree in the backyard has dried up! So those of you that have kids going to Jr. High next year get ready!

OK now that's off my chest, I'm off to find somewhere to take a nap.

See ya!

Girl, I know what you mean! I'm exhausted! I actually went to bed at 9:30 the other night! I know we haven't finished paying for stuff either! Random fact: I played bariton in middle school! :)
