It is really taking more than it should to get back into the swing of school starting. I took my eleven year old to the open house preceding her first day at Middle School. What is the only thing you must remember to bring when your primary purpose is to purchase school supplies, pay for lunch cards, etc.? My checkbook. Totally left it at home. Who uses checkbooks anymore? Paper checks are as useful as carbon paper. I brought the box of supplies for my third grader instead of my 6th grader. Then I showed up at 6:00 for the 7:00 Band parent meeting at school. Three for three.
It’s wigging me out that we don’t have the soccer schedules yet because I have to coordinate three moving pieces going to soccer practice. I swear it is more stressful being a full-time parent than it was working full-time and resourcing these tasks. At least when I go back to work I will fully appreciate what I’m asking someone else to do for the family!
I’m trying to de-tox from a full summer with the kids by listening to my Rap/Hip-hop play list. I love it that only a handful of songs on this playlist don’t contain a Parental Advisory warning label: EXPLICIT. Thank you, Kanye West, for giving me my Moment of Zen.
Let’s have a toast for the douchebags,
Let’s have a toast for the assholes,
Let’s have a toast for the scumbags,
Every one of them that I know
Let’s have a toast for the jerkoffs
That’ll never take work offBaby,
I got a plan
Run away fast as you can
I hate it that we all want to kill each other by the end of the summer. Guess we are just a normal American family, of which each of the members need their space. And at least one of us needs loud, inappropriate music.
