Heigh Ho

Heigh ho, Heigh ho, it’s off to school they go. Today is “Going Back to School” day…for Colinboy, Sweet Wishy, and Happy. Does it sound like I’m doing a jig over here in my blog seat?

Is that a smile on Kat’s face? Could I be the same woman from last September…the woman who was boo-hooing that her kids were flying the coop…and she was left with an empty nest… singing the “I’m-no-longer-useful, What-will-I do-with-myself, The-house-is-so-quiet” blues.

Well, THEY were right…all those empty nesters who have gone before me, were absolutely right. I would learn to appreciate how clean my house would stay...with no extra laundry, shopping, cooking…and the benefactor of consecutive hours of worry-free sleep. Now I can tend to the important stuff…blogging.

I will also have to spend the next few days looking for items I hid…mostly from Colinboy. Am I the only one hiding things from their kids, so they don’t run off with them? Problem is I usually do a great job of hiding things from myself. Now where is that phone charger?

Don’t get me wrong, I have enjoyed having the kids home. I enjoy their company…and LOVE them to pieces…just not some of the habits that go with being a nocturnal, eternally hungry, messy, chillax college co-ed.

Okay, I’m not really doing a jig. I’m doing more of a hip-hop………….
That’s what cool kats do.
