< Upheaval: Countdown

Nine days left of school is like a slow death.

You know the end is near, and each day is just postponing the inevitable. Can we just skip these days and get it over with? The answer is no. You must continually drag yourself from the bed, put clothing on that covers more of your skin than you are comfortable with in this 95 degree heat, drive to work, and tell the kids, yet again, that, NO, it is not the last day of school!

Actually, tomorrow is our annual field trip. We go somewhere public with our brood, and pretend to be able to function in society. Nevermind the lack of restroom availability. Actually, the field trip is usually fun and the kids are so exhausted by the end of the day that they just sleep and sweat on the bus ride back to school.

So, say a prayer for me tomorrow. Maybe it won't be too traumatic. Then after that day is done, we will just have seven days!

Oh yeah...I forget the whole THREE and FOUR year olds aspect of the situation.

Okay...so a lil' cold, greasy, germ-ridden pizza to top off a day of whining, screaming, poking and "he's looking at me's"
