Happy Happy Joy Joy



Yesterday was a LONG and arduous day..but it no longer matters.....:))) I feel the joy today!

The phone was ringing off the hook.
"Mom, I need this book. Can you get it for me right now?"


It didn't matter that I had six thousand other things going on at that time because today, it no longer matters.....
"Mom, can six of my friends come over and skateboard? Yeah, and we're hungry too. Can you get us pizza? Hurry too, cuz we're starving."


Who really cares that I had to drive them all home afterwards. It no longer matters.....
"Mom, I'm bored. Can we go to the mall?"
"What do you mean I have to take a shower????"


Don't care. The couple of Benjamin's I dropped at the mall no longer matter either. It just doesn't matter any more...
"Mom, I need a ride to Dana's house. Yeah, right now!!"
"But mom, it's ONLY 10:30. It's too early for bed."


Whatever, not caring today.
"Can Dana and Olivia and Ally and Sammi sleep over? What? I can't leave anybody out."
"What's for dinner mom? Chicken again? Can't I just have Easy Mac instead?"


Who cares? Unimportant in the big picture.
"I couldn't clean my room mom because I woke up at noon, had breakfast at one, watched Twilght for the millionth time, did my nails, then had to have lunch by 3:30. I was wayyyy too busy."

Uh huh. None of this matters any longer.

Because today is the greatest day of my life!

Today, all debts are paid back in FULL!! Yesiree!!

Today, life begins for me....
Today is the FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL.!!!!!

And today, for me, life is gooooood!

Thank you God.

I picture you in that commercial with the guy dancing around in the store (Staples? Office Max?) to "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year" while buying school supplies for his kids. :)

This is our first year with Skyler not going back to school. It is a somewhat weird feeling!

My daughter goes back tomorrow. And the Kindergartener I'm nanny to will go back as soon as his district's teachers strike ends (they're in court today) so I'm sensing quieter days on the horizon.

*blissful sigh*

Maybe I'm biased.

I laugh with you because you're funny...

And I cross my fingers that I may never have to go thru this in my life.
