Well, we did it. The kids conquered their first day in 4th, 8th, 9th grades. It was very rainy and windy this morning so I couldn't take our usual pictures outside in front of the flower tree. This year too they are all on 3 different times so no more having 3 together all morning for me. Kinda sad about it and kinda like it for the one/one I will get with them. They all got up great and had a fun day, thank goodness. All 3 of them excited and can't wait to go back tomorrow. I was actually very CALM today that's how I felt CALM!! Usually that's not me but for some reason it was today. I didn't worry about as much and thru the day it just felt like they were doing ok. So I was able to relax and enjoy my house, OH YEAH BABY!! MY HOUSE IS MINE AGAIN, IT'S CLEAN !! I made myself go to the track then right back home to enjoy it. I even changed all the frames around the house and that alone made me feel so happy and felt like home again. No scrapping today but that's ok will do some next week. I cleaned both bathrooms, did 2 loads laundry, did dishes, wiped down kitchen, swept floor, changed litter box, ate lunch in peace and read a magazine. I kept thinking about them and all the fun we had over the summer and how excited they were to leave this morning. So I better quit babbling so you can go see the pictures now. Thanks for reading.
