Hulk started school August 12th. That kind of stunk for him because he had to get up early, get dressed and ready and off every morning while the rest of us got to sleep in, watch TV (or in Batman’s case Captain Sparklez on YouTube *RollingMyEyes*!) and DO NOTHING all day.
Captain America (aka Cap) and Batman started today. Cap is a Junior in high school (Already?) and Batman started Middle School or 6th grade. Hulk is a Sophomore but he is in another school district because they have a better program and more secure campus than we do.
The point is that this morning I was bored.
How many times can you check Facebook in an hour? Part of me thinks I need a job (because I have been bored a lot lately) but mostly I think I just need to buckle down and do the things that need doing. Like the laundry. Ick. I guess I could make dinner at 10 AM, that would free up my day.
Or write a book.
There’s an idea.
I was surprised that I actually missed my kids and on the FIRST DAY BACK TO SCHOOL I actually started looking forward to next summer. ::sigh:: What am I going to do with me?
That’s all crazy talk!
So here’s the thing, September is like January for me. I had my birthday yesterday, the kids are all back in school (even Princess is starting school this week!) and I’m thinking about what I need to do. I need to keep up the house so it doesn’t overwhelm me again. My family cleaned the house (yes, I helped) as part of my birthday gift yesterday. Yes, it’s unbelievably appreciated. Since I can’t even vacuum lately. We even put pictures up, since we’ve been in this place for two years and looks like we’ll be here at least for another year… ::sigh::
I am also starting a class this week. I started Spanish 100 to complete my foreign language requirement. Spanish is helpful where I live (near Los Angeles) and beneficial for being in the schools (which is what I want to do) so I’m okay with it. Nervous, but okay.
I like working on my goals every three months or so. I always have goals. Sometimes I am more energetic than others in that I think I can do more than I end up actually doing, but then isn’t it better to aim for the moon and reach the stars? I think so. So one of the things I will be working on this week is figuring out which areas of my life I really want to improve. I already know what they are I just have to isolate the actions needed to accomplish those goals.
And my kids? They are actually happy to be back in school too. We do better when he have a set schedule. I know I do and that means we all do.
