Just wanted to let you know all is well at the PK household. There are 13 school days left for students until my summer freedom. We are adjusting to having Mollie home. She is an excellent cook and doesn’t mind doing a little cleaning – can’t ask for much more of an adult offspring living at home. In fact I’ve had to limit her cooking to no more than three times a week or I’m going to be big as a house.
She headed off this past weekend with friends and suddenly we had an empty house. We’re still trying to celebrate first weekend (regardless of when we get around to it). And we had a great celebration – Nick is going off on a golf trip next weekend so I decided to treat him to an afternoon of pampering and he seemed to appreciate it very much.
The list hasn’t come up since we cleared it last time over a week ago – but I’ve often said I’m pretty near perfect, I suppose the lack of anything on the list goes to proves that. But I don’t mind, I’m slipping back into mom mode, despite the fact that Mollie needs no mothering. It’s just a feeling I get when she is in the house.
So a wild 13 days to come – end of grade testing to get through. I always get a little stressed this time of year. I’m giving one test on line. I’ve never done that before – not sure how that’s going to go. I know it’s the future, but I wish they had waited until I retired. I have grades to finish up too, not to mention lesson plans continue all this time, got to keep the kids occupied even if they aren’t learning too much these last few days. A stress relief spanking or two would be nice and Mollie does work four days a week until six, Nick and I are home by 3:30 each day. Cross your fingers for me.
