I’m Ready, I’m Ready, I’m Ready!


Tomorrow is the last day of school.  Here’s a list of things I’m ready for:

  • Heading to the matinee
  • Lazy mornings in PJ’s
  • Trips for ice cream
  • The kids splashing in the pool
  • The drive in
  • Riding bikes on the trail
  • Carnivals

Things I’m not looking forward to:

  • “I’m bored!”
  • “She hit me!”
  • “I’m hot!”
  • Keeping their brains working

So, I guess I AM looking forward to summer.  But I also get excited about them going back to school.  Seeing that back to school is 76 days away, I’m just going to enjoy the Summer stuff first.  Then I can get excited about new pencils, glue sticks, teachers and outfits.  I’ve decided that I’m going to take some time to ACT LIKE A KID this summer.  I may even put my bathing suit on once or twice.  Why?  Because this is the last summer that I am IN MY THIRTIES!  I’m going to be carefree (I hope), fun and silly.  I will eat popsicles.  I will draw with chalk.  I will jump rope.  I will teach my kids to do a cartwheel.  Don’t get me wrong…I’m not going to be a boring, strict 40 year old.  But I think I’ll suck up the last bit of my thirties, and then get back to ‘the grind’ once I turn 40 and school starts again.

    I wish I was going to hit 40. 40 anything.
