I’m Free

I’m free, I’m free at last! No more refereeing sisterly fights, no more answering the phone and feeling like an answering machine, “Hi, this is so and so’s mom she can’t come to the phone right now because her lazy butt is still in bed at 11am, would you like to leave a message?” and no more chauffeuring kiddos to the movies or friends houses! Well at least not until the weekend anyway!

Christmas Winter break is finally over! I can now clean the house without having to move the kids from one room to the next. I can go to the grocery store and get only the stuff on my list. I can go see Avatar instead of having to see Alvin and the Chipmunks! Oh wait I liked Alvin and the Chipmunks!

Don’t get me wrong I love my daughters. Well at times I love them! But they needed to go back to school. They were even ready to go back! Two weeks of no school is just enough time to get to do stuff with them and not end up killing them. Maybe year-round school is a good idea after all!

Now it’s back to getting up at 5 in the morning, making lunches, driving kids to school and picking them up and helping them with homework. Wait, maybe they should go back on vacation! I’m not so free after all!

Motherhood - Ya. It's for the insane!

Go Jump In A Lake…OK!

Here we go, I think this is going to be the busiest weekend of the summer!

Tomorrow night we are going to see Bryan Adams and Foreigner in concert. It is an outdoor concert and yes we are taking the kids. They love going to concerts with us, so we let them when the price is right. These tickets were $10 each but you have to sit on the lawn which is what we prefer to do anyway. Last year we took both girls to see Steve Miller. We also took the older one to go see Rush this one was a bit expensive but she really wanted to go. This concert should be great!

Saturday we get to celebrate my youngest daughter’s birthday. She will be officially 9 even though her dad thought she was turning 10! She will have three of her friends over  to our neighborhood pool for a party. Simple but fun, they can swim, eat pizza have cake and the best part is nobody gets to mess up my house!

Sunday is the day I can’t wait to get here. We are packing up the car and heading out for 4 days of camping. We rent a cabin at a lake every summer to just get away from it all. The best part is we have a no electronics rule for everyone. No cell phones, radios, tv, computers, gameboys, nothing!

So come Sunday I am going to say the hell with it all and go jump in a lake!
