I'm overwhelmed and stressed out (as usual). I have work piling up and a project for my son's school that needs to be done by Tuesday. I drive to Chicago in a week to take the boy child to his dad's house. Two whole weeks of blissful quiet. No Disney Channel or Cartoon Network blaring at all hours of the day. In fact, I'd be shocked if I turned on the television at all! I'll miss him after about day three and will call everyday to check on him. Last time he barely talked to me on the phone because his older brother was finally there for the summer.
My plans are to sleep, clean and read while I can. I also plan to work my ass off to get caught up so I don't fall behind again. It's been hard this year without relying on financial aid from school. It was refreshing to take a break from it though. There is some drama with it but I have two weeks to straighten everything out.
My son's bedroom is about to be de-cluttered of all the toys he's accumulated. I'm about to purge all the clothes that have been piling up. I need to see what gaps need filling - other than socks and underwear. I'm sure he need shoes - don't they always? Goodwill (or other local charity) here we come!
Two blissful weeks. Seven more days to get there. Four days of hell before we're free from school. *sighs*
