Do you know what today is? I mean, aside from the day after Labor Day in which you are no longer supposed to wear white (and I totally saw some chick wearing white jeans today. I didn't know whether to point and exclaim because it's a blatant slap at Labor Day, or because I'm fearful that the 80s are returning in fashion force.), it's also the first day of school here in Michigan!
That means that I'm forced to get up at 6am to get my kids off to school, and start the work day earlier. I can't tell you how happy that makes me. I'm so much more productive in the mornings despite the fact that I like to stay up really late. It's not even 8am as I write this and the kids are gone, I'm on my second cup of coffee with breakfast, and I have home made Italian sausage and sauce bubbling away on my stove top for hours of simmering pleasure. Heck, the fact that I'm posting should tell you how together I get when school starts.
You wanna know the best of it? I have a daughter going into middle school today, and a daughter going into high school today. That means they wake up and leave at the same time. This is a first for me. Normally, I'm up at 6am and the last one doesn't LEAVE until around 8. Today, I've had an hour head start. Sure they come home on a half day today, but I'm stoked. I love school time. Working from home gets so much easier without fielding questions from an ADD kid and an ADHD kid all day long.
Wheeeeeeeeee! Freedom. Thank you, school system, for making writing erotic sex all day simplified!
