Can't Seem To Find The Time
I can't seem to find the time to post anymore. I seem to go, go, go from the moment I fall out of bed in the morning until I drop into it each night.
Can I tell you that middle school is KILLING me? Offspring is having a great time, but seeing her off to the bus at 6:42 am is *really* cramping my style. I used to be one of those people that rolled out of bed about 20 minutes before I had to be at work, eking out every possible second of sleep that I could. Gone are those days. LONG gone.
She seems to be adjusting well to middle school life -- has fun riding the bus with her friends, and is overjoyed that her best buddy is in her homeroom (and same "block" schedule) so they get to see each other all day.
She's already had several info packets about upcoming papers and projects sent home, and even turned in an "All About Me" project this morning. The work load is heavier, but it's not too much just yet -- as the year gets fully under way, I expect there to be more work.
The one thing she was bummed at: her school does not have lockers. She REALLY wanted a locker. And, judging by how freaking heavy that backpack is, they really need to get them lockers. That thing weighs a ton!
