I know the feeling of having the kids all day long. My three kiddos start school on Monday and I'm looking forward to some ME time! Whew! It's been a busy summer with the kids. Lucky for you that you can get away from the kiddos when you go to work. LOL The thing is I have to go back to work with KIDS again! Argh!!! I'm an elementary teacher and will begin substituting this year. I feel I need at least a year of part time work in order to get the other stuff done (family, husband, house, etc.)

Today, we did some school clothes shopping for the kids, registered our 5 year old for soccer, hubby to be the soccer coach and 14 year old son to referee. Our daughter still has a bit more shopping to finish up tomorrow. Sigh! I hope this is over soon. Had coffee and diet coke late this p.m. just to keep up with the kiddos and now I can't go to sleep...argh! I'm really tired but can't sleep.

Take youngest to & from school and either tackle the upstairs or the garage....I didn't get to either yesterday. I also need to paint what trim we have cut for the diningroom/family room. Other than that nothing else comes to mind.

One of the things on our schedule for today is to try out a local pizza place Michelemarie and her husband told us about. Yum!

The biggest thing on our schedule is going to our first in-person Chicago Cubs game. WooHoo!
