I am entirely too excited about tomorrow. Tomorrow my kids start school. Tomorrow I will be alone for a good bit of the day. And I have big plans. Plans for laundry and cleaning. But even if my plans include those things they will also include loud music and dancing. Because I will be alone! Now I love my kids. Love them. I have enjoyed having them home this summer. We've done lots of traveling and had lots of family time. I am just ready for some alone time. I'm ready to drown out the sound of crickets with some yummy music. Ahhhh...I can almost hear the peace and quiet now. Dusting off the ol' iPod speakers....

I know exactly what you mean! It's amazing how much you can get done, almost effortlessly, when you're on your own. Enjoy!

explain wanting peace and quiet and listening to loud music? so you don't really want quiet, you just want kid silence? is that it?

i so get it. for the first time both of my kids will be in school. (hear a childlike squeal escape my lips!)

How about some ABBA? I just bought the 2-CD greatest hits after I finally got to see Mamma Mia.

Have fun!

Penny beat me to it! I was going to tell you to pick up the cast-version of the Mamma Mia! soundtrack. You will fuh-reak out, you'll love it so much.

I've got about 4 more years before I get to feel your particular brand of bliss. But I'm totally happy for you!

Amen Sister. I plan to clean the deep recesses of my house tomorrow while blasting good and loud Gospel music. Well, at least while my toddler is sleeping, lol. But I will get more work done than I have all summer with our oldest child back in school. I'm looking forward to the routine fall will bring back to our lives. I'm OCD like that. :o)
