My kids are officially out of school until mid-August.
They are bouncing off the walls at the idea of hanging out with their friends and lazy days and playing video games until their brains atrophy. Sasquatch is on the first sleepover of the 2008 Summer Tour. We have weekend plans that include Indiana Jones, a Memorial Day BBQ and a birthday camp-out. (Not ours, thank goodness).
And me? All I can think is that today I get to sleep in as late as I want. No early alarms. No school or work to clock into. No nothing. Just me and a fuzzy blanket and rain outside the open window and snoring kids and dogs.
It will take about a week before summer starts kicking my butt. And until the kids start realizing that the reality of their summer is going to be very different from the fantasy. I may as well rest up while I can.
