My turn




The kids all were awake way before their alarms buzzed. They had there clothes all laid out ready for them to throw over their sleepy heads. Brushed their teeth without my usual reminder. They ate a big breakfast (that just means a bigger bowl of cereal). Where are they going? Back to school!! Although Sid and Mas were in agreement that "the first day of school is kind of scary." They were all very excited! Even Boston, for the first time ever, was excited for school. I think it may have something to do with starting middle school. He's feeling very grown up.

Now I am enjoying my freakishly quiet day, and my house that may actually stay clean for a few hours.

Merilee, cute pics, but what I really want to comment on is your music, specifically the Format sings "Holly Jolly Christmas" I LOVE IT. Actually, I just love Christmas music in general. Any time of year! Thanks for making me happy!

i am so happy for you to have some solitude. I thought that would happen when my kids went back to school, but I just got busier. I hope it works out for you. The house does stay a little cleaner though.

Where is that toile? I really like it.

Hi Mer. The pics of the kids are beautiful! Guess what? I have a blog!
At this point Meg has done more of it than I have, but I'll get going. I will post on it everyday while Dad and I are tripping. Umm ... I never thought to use Costco as my entertainment. Love ya!
