Happy day after Labor Day. I like it when Mondays are on a Tuesday, because then Friday gets here quick. I’m also extremely happy it’s September. I get all these nostalgic feelings this time of year for basically everything wonderful in my life, but especially for the year that I was becoming a mother for the first time.
I just went to Drew’s school. When I realized he had forgotten his September lunch money, I shrugged it off. We could always pay that tomorrow as he probably has a credit anyway from snow days last year and such. Then when I saw a progress report I was supposed to have initialed, I felt a little more concerned. But when I remembered he had taken off without his snack, I snatched Jake from his movie, piled all those things in the car and drove to the school. If I can keep Drew’s pseudo Monday from actually feeling like one by heading off not one – or two – but three – “I forgots”, then my own pseudo Monday will definitely go better.
So I’m writing a blog too. Because I was thinking, what if everyone is having a Mondayish sort of Tuesday? And then they click onto my blog, thinking, Well, at least there will be something fresh there, and then there isn’t? It might feel as though life has stopped altogether, and that could really bring a person down.
So this is my way of hopping in the car and taking you your kid-size bag of Cheez-Its. Don’t you feel better now?
