When I started this blog, my intention was to write often. In reality, life gets in the way and good intentions tend to fall by the wayside. I spent two months consumed with watching my daughter participate in marching band, then the next month missing marching band, although when it was going on we were all exhausted. I’ve read some really good books, watched some good tv, Walking Dead anyone?, cooked some good food and spent good times with family and friends. Even though it’s Christmas time I find my life slowing down a little now from the crush of back to school activity.
The biggest conundrum in my life right now is that I am dying to take a trip somewhere. I want to pack my bags, gather my family and hit the road. For the last two years, we’ve gone to Hawaii with my husband on a business trip in January and this year, the meeting has been pushed back to March, so I feel like I need to get ready to go, but then I remember that I DON’T need to get ready to go, I realize that I have to stay in Ohio for the entire winter, and my perk goes poof.
Oh well, at least Christmas break starts in two weeks. Oh wait, that’s another conundrum. Break starts on Dec. 21st. A Wednesday. Do you know what that means? We have school for two completely useless days that will involve a lot of absent students and absolutely nothing getting accomplished. Even worse? Break only lasts for a week and half. That blows, as they say in cultured circles. This conundrum creates another one, do I keep my kids home on the 19th and 20th and make my OWN two week break?, or, do I behave like a responsible parent and force them to school for those two useless days? Not sure, but I have to say I’m leaning toward irresponsibility. Feeling like a rebel. Tired of being a “good girl.” POWER TO THE SLACKERS!!!
I’ll be back soon 🙂
