Today is the first day back at school for my boys. I know I should take advantage of all of this free time and be productive, so I made a to-do list.
OK, so my list isn’t exactly productive. But, when you are a full-time mom with school-age children, you don’t get any time to yourself in the summer. The way I see it, I haven’t had a day off since June 10th. So I’m taking today off. Well, not really all day. Just 8:15 until 3:45. And there are some unavoidable chores I have to do. That darn dishwasher isn’t going to empty itself!
Today I’m doing only the absolutely necessary housework so I can enjoy myself a little. Tomorrow my life will get back to normal, with a list of chores and projects a mile long. Well, at least by Wednesday anyway. Thursday, at the very latest.
