Fun Facts

1.  We had powerful thunderstorms last night.
2.  Said thunderstorms knocked our power out at 4:30am.
3.  We slept blissfully through the power outage.
4.  We woke up with Henry standing over our bed saying, "It's 6:45"
5.  My alarm was set for 6:00am - thank goodness for Henry's cell phone alarm.
6.  Being the first day of school, it was not good to wake up late.
7.  I drove Henry to his bus stop (first time ever riding a bus) to go to his first day of Middle School.
8.  I got Hayden to his new school fairly early, but could not find a parking spot.  We had to walk from three blocks away.
9.  We could not get to his locker easily.  We were being blocked by all the kids "decorating" their lockers.  I have never seen such an assortment of wall paper, glitter, fluffy stuff and chandeliers -yes, chandeliers.  No wonder everyone came early.  At our old school, locker decorating was not allowed.
10.  I did the "mom" thing and called Henry to make sure he got to school ok.  He was fine, but he forgot to memorize his bus number.
11.  I am currently waiting for Durham Bus Services to call me back with Henry's bus number or I may be making a trek across town around 3:30 to pick him up.
12.  My house is a disaster.
13.  I am ignoring it.
14.  I have a pit in my stomach.
15.  First day of school has never been my best.
16.  I am getting too old for this sort of thing.


  1. Just think of all the things you can do now that school has stated!

  2. Those little guys are keeping you young. :)
