Today is the last day of the first official week of school here...and we've survived! Almost! School will be out at 3 pm, and I'm sure my kids will be tired. They've had a great first week though--so that's what counts. It's nice to start the year off on a good note.
And I have had 3 days to run errands (maybe too many...I'm literally running on fumes now)...and I even took time to exercise outside today. Usually I get up early on school mornings, hit the treadmill in the basement, and am showered & dressed BEFORE I drop them at school.
Today I turned off the alarm clock & just fixed myself up enough to look "presentable" (provided no one looked too closely)...drove the kids to school & then came home. Tied up my tennies & hit the pavement.
Gave me the chance to fit in an extra "long workout" into my week...and now I'd better shower before it's noon. :) Feels rather luxurious to be exercising & showering with an empty house. So quiet. So peaceful. I may drown in the shower from sheer bliss. :)
