Oh yeah, my son is 15 and will be in the 9th grade in 4 weeks... I've sent him to his father during the summer holidays and oh boy, do I love the peace and quiet! I can get up 1 hour later because the bathroom is all mine... He takes longer than any girl his age... We don't have to cook every evening... we can watch TV... we can even listen to some music... no PlayStation... no empty coca-cola bottles lying around... The chips are all mine...

And you know the stupidest thing, as difficult as he is, I have started thinking about having a second child... at my age... maybe a cute little girl with blond locks... who doesn't talk back and doesn't know everything better... hmmm... better buy one more cat...

I don't get a break anymore. Since I've spent most of the summer with C and the kids, it's been kid-filled for the majority of the summer. I report back to work on the 17th and students come in for the first full day on the 20th.

Yep, they're young and only 11mos apart in age. Sidonia was born 5/22 and Tabitha was born 4/19 the following year.


And unfortunately, we're not all set, lol. We had about 1/2 of the supplies from what we purchased for last year, so we have 1/2 of their supplies, plus clothes, to buy between now and next Friday.
