So it begins

14 Jun

School gets out on Thursday, but apparently the teachers are already cleaning out the classrooms because the deluge of paper, projects, used/random/worthless school supplies and paraphernalia has hit my house.  I hate this part.

I noticed Mr. T came home with his at school meds, including his rescue inhaler and Epipen.  There are four days left of school.  I mentioned this to Mr. T and he said, “It’s like they’re plotting my assassination.”

More than once this weekend, my kids complained of boredom.  I’m just hours away from a three month weekend.  Shoot.  Me.  Now.

Along with the boredom came an increase in sibling unpleasantries.  Lock and load, people.  Seriously.

Four more days.   And then it’s 81 more days.

    Hmmm. They ought to let Mr. T keep his meds until the last day.

    Mr. T slays me!

    We are starting our 3rd week of summer break. I took them all to Lowes and Walmart today. When will I learn? Twelve years ago today I started being a mom and it is apparent that I haven’t learned a thing. I’d rather starve than drag them to the Walmart again. Lowes wasn’t so bad – lots of interesting stuff, but not that much that they actually want – plus paint chips!!

    I’m with ya, sista. I am dreading it. Dreading! I think the key to our sanity will be three televisions. One for each of them. If I can keep them all separated, then I can prevent most disasters.

    I’ve been feeling guilty for the last couple weeks dreading summer coming as tons of my friends are putting how happy they are that school is over or will be over soon. How they love summer and being home with their kids. I’m glad I’m not the only one who wishes school never got out! I love my kid (only one school age kid. I’ll take Mr. Smiley all day–he takes naps!), but come on!

    Um, your kids aren’t out yet??? We’re on week 3.

    It hasn’t been so bad yet. We’ve had summer camps, gymnastics, weddings, trips to keep us busy so far. I’m finding that’s the key for my kids….something to do.

    Mr. T’s teacher sent him home with his rescue meds? At the time when it seems like random treats of mysterious origin seem to be thrown at the kids with reckless abandon? Maybe they are plotting his assassination?!

    Oh, I’m right there with you, lbs. My kids get out of school Friday. We had a Friday off a couple weeks ago and it gave me a peek into what is ahead. Much fighting. I’m not ready for it! Or for all those school supplies to come home that they Just Had To Have.

    I better stock up on Diet coke!

    Ack! Don’t remind me!

    Patience—Yeah, that’s kind of what I was thinking.

    Mother—Me too!

    Evita—Walmart with 5 children?? (You do have 5, right?)

    Kamille—We only have two televisions, dangit!

    Flip—Part of me is always glad for summer and part of me is just not. So not.

    Julie—Exactly! This actually happened several years ago when I got Mr. T’s meds the day before school got out and the last day of school he was exposed to peanut. Luckily, he has yet to have an anaphylactic reaction, but you just never know.

    Amanda—I appreciate your commiseration.
