A MidSummer's Rant

I'm ready for the Substitute to come in now.

When summer vacation approaches I make lists of all our city has to offer. Hikes, water parks, educational programs, etc. I try to make sure my girls don't lose what they've learned through-out the year, but I get that we all need time to do 'nothing'. And I want that right now. I want to have someone else come in and plan the day while I... oh, I don't know... do nothing.

I've had my fill of meal planning. I've had my fill of whining. I've had my fill of chaperoning the "Field Trips", what we call outings. (Hoping that by calling the trips to the grocery store "Field Trips" the kids would get ready faster. Nope. Time for something new. Maybe I'll call them 'If You Get Ready I'll Give You A Dollar'.)

I praise daycare coordinators. I honor home schoolers. I think you're amazing. But for me, that Staples commercial is sounding pretty darn good right now.

This commerical is 15 years old! I can't believe that. Well, it's time for me to take a deep breath and enjoy these summer days. I know they'll be over before I know it.

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!) Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story: I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair , my hair style was a nightmare. My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well.
