One day closer to my hero being home…

I’m Tired.

I’ve now been home for a couple of hours.  The kids are in bed, the dogs are fed, and I am brain dead.  (Like that? It rhymed!) See how tired I am? I’m amused by my own inane jokes.

I am so thankful that tomorrow is a down day for us.  The kiddos  and I will join a couple of other military moms for Starbucks coffee and chatting.  Well, I will join the other moms… I have told The Minions that they will be sitting at another table.  Doing school work.  While I am socializing.

I know, I know… I’m a terrible home school mom.  But I really don’t feel that bad about it.  They are so lucky to be able to go to Starbucks in the middle of the day.  I told them that they may order a treat while they quietly do their seat work.  They have plenty to do… Most days they don’t need my help on Math or Latin, plus they have plenty of copy work from Essentials.  I think it’ll be kind of fun for them to act all grown up and on their own, and maybe we’ll have a day with no attitudes!  Gasp!  See? It’s not bad.  It’s really going to be good for them!  It’s for THEIR sake I’m doing this!

As my father-in-law says, I can rationalize anything.
