well we did church, we had lunch, we did the ice cream social, a hellish trip to Target with miguel and now we are home. I think I have everything organized for the kids except for their lunch.
i think gabi is nervous because she has been very giggly and silly today, super chatty and all over the place. Larisa is just normal as usual, school is so good for her, she thrives with rules and schedules. Miguel is in denial and completely ignoring the fact that tomorrow he has school all day. whatever works....
am i a bad mom if i say that i'm really looking forward to having the house to myself during the days? ugh, i hate sounding like that... i am looking forward to time to myself, a more organized house and freedom to do things while they are in school.
I'm having a lovely glass of wine with some leftover salmon from friday. Hunter, who was Miguel's swim teacher this summer, was here for dinner with us and it was a very nice visit, we will miss him very much, he really became a fixture this summer. It's odd when things happen that way, you meet someone and they worm their way into weave of your day to day. Miguel talks of his "bro" all the time and constantly asks if his bro likes this or that. he was really determined to find out if Hunter liked the song "Human" from The Killers and we got verification from Hanna that he does, so miguel is happy to know this. If you read this "Io parlo italiano" don't be a stranger, call, facebook or text :) and be careful ;)
this will be a really busy week which is really a bummer because i was looking forward to a peaceful first week back to school. i have appt's out the wazoo and things to do almost every single day of the week, i think tuesday is my only free day and I'll probably have to clean that day so I can be caught up and ready since I'll be running around the rest of the week.
this was a rambly post and for some reason i'm reminded of pooh so I'm going to add a quote that i love from pooh:
“You can't always sit in your corner of the forest and wait for people to come to you... you have to go to them sometimes.”
Winnie the Pooh quote
I don't know why i thought of it and don't know that it has anything to do with what i wrote but I thought it was a very cool quote.
