We got out the door a bit before eight this morning, and avoided the "I ain't gettin' up 'fore noon, even to buy my kids' shit for school" crowd. Got the kids' basic school wardrobes, supplies, etc.
And, from here through the end of the weekend, I'm fucking hiding. I want nothing to do with the crazy that will be clogging stores for the rest of the sales tax holiday weekend.
Much to do refers to catching up on housework. I seem to have a limited amount of ability to get up and get things done, and that kinda fell by the wayside Tuesday and Wednesday, and yesterday was me recovering. I've gotten some more done, but...yeah.
And, of course, the ants took my lapse in getting dishes done promptly as a signal to riot around my sink. Damn them.
I also still have much to do in preparing for classes, and getting things organized and together for back to school night (which is this coming Tuesday), and then school (this coming Thursday morning--I'll have two half days next week in which to do housework without anyone getting underfoot).
Monday will bring another huge change for my family. My other half, Odysseus, has graduated from the university where I teach, and has acquired a job related to the second degree he has earned. It's a done deal, papers signed and everything, and he starts orientation on Monday. I cannot be prouder of him.
