Got That Feeling

     It is the first day of the new school year. You're excited. The kid is excited. The teacher is excited. Everyone is excited. After weeks of no routine, you're thinking what a relief it is to be returning to school day patterns.

    You're looking forward to having the house to yourself. Thinking of the things you can do uninterrupted. Then you get home. And the house is quiet. Real quiet. Too quiet. It is so quiet you can hear a fish fart.

    A surprising thought occurs to me… How did I survive school days last year? Because now  that I have no excuse about getting chores done I am actually struggling to get started.
