Rules and how to make them...

I hate summer.

Let me say that again. I hate summer. With a passion.

I know, I'm a teacher and I should enjoy the months off. I should be hanging out at the beach or in my backyard or at the pool. HA, who am I kidding? I don't do any of that!

Let's try this again. I should be curled up on the couch with a good book or video game. Yeah, that sounds better.

Why aren't I doing that this summer? Well, between starting my vacation with a summer class and teaching Summer Enrichment taking away my June, my internship taking up my July, I find myself in August with less then 2 weeks before I go back to work and I feel cheated. I even went back to school shopping yesterday ... ACK!!

To make things worse, the kids are in full summer mode. Visiting with friends, playing video games and music all day, watching TV all night. I'm pretty sick and tired of them still being up at midnight. Where is MY time?

I do look forward to the return of rules and schedules. Even if it means that I'm back at work, I want to have my time back.

On the plus side, T comes this weekend ... all the more reason I want to reinstitute the bedtimes. Momma needs some grown up time. *nudge nudge*
