Ok, so the first two weeks of school wasn’t brutal or even as bad as I thought they would be. I figured there would be the repeat of last year when the youngest was always “sick”, only to find out she didn’t want to be there because there was a new school and teacher she had to get use too.
What was hard was getting back into my “up at the butt crack of dawn” routine for school. I’m not ashamed to say that it royally kicked my ass this year.
I was really starting to get into my go to bed really late and let the kids sleep in long enough to get my minimum requirement of 6 hours but never more then 8, because if I sleep longer then 8 hours I am more tired then if I only had 3 hours sleep.
Anywhoo, today is the start of the third week of school and I’m proud to say that the girls survived it intact, and, thank the playground spirits, so did the boys who decided to play with them. LOL
Most boys take one look at my more girly-looking girls and think “ah crap, do I have to play with them! They’re girls! They’re no fun.”
And then they learn the hard truth. Just because the one likes to wear dresses and the other wears the sparkly sequins belt given to her by an aunt, doesn’t mean they can’t play Zombie Apocalypse or Robot Combat with the best of them. And in some cases even surpass the boys in combat.
Which reminds me, one of these days I’m going to steal the Zombie Apocalypse idea that the kids have created and write an entire world using their mixed up version of The Walking Dead, Z Nation, and what sounds to be World War Z. I also think there is a little Terminator Salvation in there and something to do with Vampires and Dragons. Their world sounds awesome and frightening all at the same time. :D’
Until that day, I need to get back into the groove of working on my current writing projects, one of which I finished last week and another I plan to start this week.
And now it’s 6pm and I really need to start the girls bedtime routine so they can get enough sleep to slaughter their way through the third week of school.
