I just want my readers to know that if I don't blog for a long time it's probably because school is coming to a close in 84 hours and I'm just about to die. Not that I'm counting down, but it's getting here pretty quick and so is the feeling that my head is going to explode. But before we get there, we first have to jump through a hundred hurdles that have names like, "Getting through the end of 8th grade and living to tell about it." That's just one of them actually. The others issues are things like, "Did you remember you had a first grader?", and "Hey, I'm your kid, do you remember me?" Oh, let's not forget about, "Are you ever going to be in a good mood again?" (For the record, NO, I'm probably not.)
My dear other children, I do know who you are, and right at the moment I even remember all your names. I think. But your sister is overwhelmed with all of the end-of-the-year crap and nobody in the whole entire household can function when she's spazzing out about everything. We love her dearly, but quite frankly, we just can't wait to be DONE with school! Even though it will only be a few hours after school gets out that she'll be moaning and carrying on and wishing she was back IN school so she could see her FRIENDS. Fat lotta good they are right now - nobody else stays up late helping her with history projects, models of monuments or the topic of xenophobia. How about dress shopping for that super important dance that has overshadowed everything else worthwhile for an entire two months? Good thing the dance turned out pretty cool - because I got some great pictures before I dropped her off for her three hours of dessert, silliness, and the dance with "that boy" that I got to hear all about on our way home.
Summer Vacation, we are SO ready for you.
