Whew! I'm glad that's over!

09:44:38 AM
Well, the kids are back at school! Thank heavens! I was glad to see them go this morning!

I had told the husband just a day or two before Spring Break started that I was getting bored at home by myself, and that I was looking forward to seeing the children home for the summer. ACK! I've changed my mind. They drove me crazy! I didn't realize how used to having free time I was. You know, quiet time. Time without arguments from children who don't get along with one another. Time without boys tussling in the back yard over a toy. Time without all the loud fun play in the back yard. Time without the high pitched piercing girly scream of, "BUBBY! GET OUT OF MY ROOOOOM!"

Poor Mr. Hairy...

08:40:58 AM
Just before Spring Break, my youngest son came home from first grade with his newest present for Mom. I was presented with a styrofoam cup that had a smiley face pictured on it with a fuzzy cotton ball beard. It was crammed to the rim with dirt, and the smiley face's hair was a nice new growth of bright green grass. Just what every kid should make his mother for a present to show how much she's loved! Just what every mother with allergies to grass would LOVE to have in the house! Of course, I was pleased to have "Mr. Hairy" as a new member of the household. I told my son that Mr. Hairy could stay inside for a week or two, but that after that we'd have to transplant him and his hair outside. Little did I know what would happen to poor Mr. Hairy to change what I'd promised, and planned on...
