Meeeeeeeeeelllllting

It's going to be 100º today. But they say it will FEEL like 107º. Do you think this is what hell feels like? I'm just asking....

Thanks for all of your suggestions for the Bat Mitzvah gift ideas. I still need to call the family - but, with this heat, I haven't done much of anything lately. And I am WELL AWARE of my pathetic lack of posting - sorry - but just sitting here trying to THINK makes me sweat. I just don't seem to have anything to post about. Summer is almost over. The kids go back to school on August 28th. How lame is THAT?! I have been working, swimming with the kids, taking day trips on Fridays, trying to get everything ready for their first day in a few weeks.

Also. I think I really don't know how I feel about the fact that Lil Man will be in school full day with Miss Thing. And in turn, this will mean I have the WHOLE ENTIRE HOUSE and the ENTIRE DAY to MYSELF!!!!! No one asking for a snack. No one asking for a friend to come over. Meals on MY time - not whenever someone else is whining. Yes, I still have to work - but think of how productive I will be with no one underfoot. I may even be able to work quickly in the morning and have the afternoons to myself - maybe even watch Oprah (Tivo'd, of course). I'm not sure I will even know what to do with myself, by myself. I can workout whenever I choose - morning or afternoon. Huh? What do you know - I can have a life.

But. I might just be a tiny bit sad about all that. SHUT UP. I'm not that sad. Maybe a little.

I'm right there with you.

My oldest, Boy, starts school next year and I've already had some almost-but-not-quite teary moments and it's NOT TILL NEXT YEAR!

Yeah, I'm pathetic.

My son starts kindergarten this year. I'm not sure what to do with myself there. I'm feeling a little lost about the whole thing. I mean, other than buying school supplies, what do I need to do? AHHHH!!!

100 degrees is hot. Is it a dry heat ;-0! ?????

Last week, it was 112. If 100 is hell, 112 is the devil's sweaty ballsack.

My middle guy starts 4K in September--two more years and the twins start school. And I can't wait--although sometimes I want to freeze time, I admit--but not often.

It took me a few weeks to adjust to all day school last year, and this year I can't wait. All that peace and quiet...

I feel for you in the heat. Shanghai's summer sucks arse- 90-100F (which they say feels like 100-110F)every day for five months. Two months to go and I am sooooooo over it already.

I hate to be the pessimist, but unless you break the trend that most people find that you will have no where near as much time as you think you will have.

Partly because you will be trying to fit so much in that can be done (or done more quickly) sans kids that you will quickly fill that time.

I hope I am wrong, but in case I am not, don't say you weren't warned.
