First day of school
My two weren't thrilled to see the summer end, I'm not either. I like having them around all the time, so we can just jump in the truck and take off for a day or two. Now we have to wait til the weekend to do things. That's what I miss about homeschooling.
My daughter starts high school today. She's nervous, but looking forward to it. She got contacts yesterday for the first time and had her hair dyed red, so she's a whole new person. My son is in 7th grade. He's decked out in his Halo 3 gear, of course. What else would a good gamer wear to school?
They posed for their annual going back to school photos and I took the neighbor's photo for the paper. Can't use my own kids in the paper. Looks bad.
The dog and cat are moping around now that they've left. They'll be attached to me all day until the school bus brings them back. It's funny, they walk in the door right when the General Hospital theme is playing. The dog (Aphrodite) hears the theme start and she goes right over to the door to wait. :) Just like Pavlov's dogs, only without the bell and drool.
I go pick up my new contacts in an hour. Never wore them before, so it'll take a while to get use to them. I'm ready though. After 25 years of wearing these glasses, I have grown to truly hate them.
Now I need to find more things to keep occupied during the day. I'll catch up on scrapbookin and do a little genealogy research, but it won't be enough. I'll have to find more things to write about for the paper. Any suggestions? What would you like to read about in your local paper?
