I'm Flying!

It finally happened. I sent my chickadees out the door today for school! My trashed house is a long way towards order and peace. Now I just need to spend a quality afternoon with my TV and laundry. I feel like this huge weight has been lifted! Liam starts preschool on Wed, and then for three mornings a week, I'll be flying totally solo. I can't really take that in yet.
It was hilarious, the other day we were seated around the table, heads bowed in prayer before dinner. Lewis was giving thanks for all our blessings, and then deviated a bit. "We thank thee for school that is about to start, for all the hours and hours that Missy will have when her house will stay clean- for all the free time she will have to work on fun projects and enjoy peace and quiet...." He went on and on while I slumped with my head on my arms shaking with silent laughter. I believe I uttered a heartier than usual AMEN!

I am so happy for you, that you have joined my club! It, the time alone, is a wonderful thing.

I told a friend just this morning, "I actually look forward to my kids coming home each day!"

You have arrived - AMEN - indeed!

I'm so glad to hear about someone else with a summer-thrashed house, because I just read a blog post where the mom had the kids all on a cleaning routine during the summer and it made me feel guilty. I'm envious of your solo time-- have lots and lots of fun reading, blogging and such!
