Mush, I tell you -- it's mush

It used to bother me when I heard a mom talking about being excited for school to start so they could get a break from their kids. I loved being with my kids and I even took a shot at homeschooling them.

So far I've broken up three bicker fests while typing those two sentences. Too much togetherness isn't good for any of us. Nobody is enjoying each other here. This is not natural -- if it were meant to be like this it wouldn't feel like a slow death.

September 4th can't come soon enough. It may be months before my brain works right again.

I can't wait for my girls to go back to school, even thou it means I have to go back to work too!!! They are going to kill each other, all the constant bickering and arguing over the stupidest things. I need to be around grown ups again, even thou I work in an elementary school.

it's a reasonable association ttq, I have polenta brain, or call me grits head -- it all works.

eileen, you know then. We provide structure, we're decent parents, but it's in the air and these kids are wacko. This seems to happen twice a year, end of summer and the cabin fever when winter drags on.

My startle reflex is completely shot -- bombs could go off and I wouldn't even flinch.
