I’m ducking out for now

Me 7-06Folks, I’ve joked about the stress of entertaining three young daughters (mostly by myself, because DH is an excellent provider) from May until August.  Now, we are literally at the end of the summer. All three daughters begin school on August 14, just three and a half days away.  They have all of their school necessities provided for (thank you grandparents!), but mentally and physically they are ‘chomping at the bit’.  The phrases I’ve heard uttered every four minutes all summer long have changed from, “Mom, I’m bored.” to “Hey, Mom!  Do you realize we go back to school in __(number of days, hours, minutes)?!”  Thank you Jay for creating the Back-To-School Countdown (on my other blog) that my daughters have found so fascinating in these final hours.  So I’m officially letting you know that I’ll be taking a vacation from blogging for a few days.  Maybe a week.  Maybe ten days.  By then, I’ll be ready to pop with all the events of school starting for the girls and myself.  I’ve got to get into the new routine, and make some specific time for writing (plus, cleaning, cooking, laundry, homework, and studying my anatomy/physiology books). I’ll try to set up some timestamped posts so none of my readers feel that I’ve left them in the lurch, as it were.  I will still be checking email, so feel free to drop me a line or two anytime!

See you when I see you, friends…
