The first day of school is always bittersweet. I’m sad to give my kids up for the entire day and see they are growing up, yet at the same time I’m gaining a whole lot of freedom.
This year my youngest started kindergarten. That means no kids, at all, from 8am to 3pm. Honestly, I don’t know what I’m going to do with all this time. I know I should use it wisely, and get some work done (including housework and “real” work). Although sometimes the silence is distracting.
It’s a good thing I’ve got some good CDs to get me through the day. So I guess today I’ll focus and what needs done with Pearl Jam in the background. Nobody is here to protest my choice of music, so why not?
Still, this feels weird.
