bitter sweet

School started today. And, although I hate for the summer to end, I must admit I was a little giddy yesterday, thinking about today. Oh, time to do the gazillion things I have let go over the summer. However, those gazillion things are just going to have to wait another day. Because, after I skipped up the driveway, drank more coffee, blared music throughout the house, I decided it was time to try to accomplish the other things on my list! Happy, happy Monday.

kim said...

Congratulations! I think those are two very worthy activities. I hope your enjoy your day. What a great photo!

Yee-Haw! I danced around the house singing "Happy Days are Here Again!" And then I went to my SnB, had lunch out, and went to the gym--all without anyone asking "Are we done yet?" I love school days.

erin said...

Was thinking of you this morning while sock knitting and getting a pedicure. At the same time. Oh, how I love school right now.

lucy said...

Yeah! Am with you. I was so stressed last night about first day of school but this morning, I put everything into perspective. So far, my morning has been successful and fulfilling.....had my morning run plus play time at the park, run a few errands and guess what, am kicking my feet right now to just KNIT and knit and do nothing else really....Enjoy your monday!

Veronique said...

Sounds like such a relaxing day!

wiscjennyann said...

Angela said...

M said...

Now that's what I call a "To Do List"!!!

Nora said...

Heh, enjoy your day.

Natalie said...

Enjoy! You've earned it after the summer!

Windy Knitty said...

Sounds like the perfect day:)

Poshyarns said...

Oh I love your "to do" list, I am going to make a very similar one next week. I love having them home but I seriously cannot wait for that first week back to school when I can dance around the house shouting "hurrah, hurrah".

sunneshine said...

How fun! After the busy summer that you have had, you deserve it!! Happy Knitting!!

Kirsten said...

Ha-ha-ha! I hope you had a fabulous day!! We've still go another week and a half. Perhaps I should start making my list. . .

Denise said...

Love your 'to do' list :-) School started for us today too. I thought I'd have trouble getting dd up for school but she crept in to our bed at 5.15am and couldn't get back to sleep! We both got up at 5.40am!
I laughed at Yarnhog's comment - I love school days too ;)
Let the knitting begin!!

Sarah said...

Sounds like heaven. Of course we love the kids, they are cute and say the darndest things, but my three year old may have dropped naps for good today. I have one year before preschool starts...

Hege said...

Wish I could add the nap on my list ;) But that's not easy with a toddler running around... Have a greata day!

KeanaLee said...

It was the first day in a long time I didn't hear. "mom!" "mom!' every 5 minutes from my daughter. I do love her but lordy I'd like to change my name to F*c*, because that is a word she can't say & she'd never be able to yell for me.
Where did I spend my day? OH yeah, at her schoool getting started on the fall fundraiser. Today I sell book sox at his school, knit tomorrow. Definitely!

nova said...

Those two things were my day yesterday. But, I was sick....and now I am back at school. Being sick at home was much better than being sick at work! I hope your Monday was relaxing!

Kaet said...

hehe! is this the same mom who was teary eyed that her little boy was "graduating" last spring? i hope you enjoy the freedom of fall, you and your family certainly seemed to make the most of the summer and make many happy memories!

Felicia said...

Sounds like a wonderful day :)

Scoutj said...

Amen sister!

DiddleDaddleDesigns said...

Sounds like fun. My kids are back at school and I have enjoyed my sewing time. Best wishes to many hours of knitting.

sheepish one said...

*sighs longingly* One day. Although I have one in school, the other two are running around amok while I try to ignore them and live vicariously through you...

Dana said...

I love your to do list :)

peaknits said...

I lov your list! I think I'll do the same thing on our first day of school - I took the day off to meet the new teacher and then pedicure and knitting for me! End of summer reward!

Tanya said...

Skipped - you crack me up! I'll be skipping next Tuesday when third grade begins :)

That's a pretty tough list! ;)

TLCknits said...

"It's the most wonderful time of the year!" My stress releives tomorrow morning at 8:15! WOOOHOOO!!

rockbridge said...

oh, that is wonderful, though i'm a little jealous! i'm one of the ones that has to go back to school and i'm (im)patiently awaiting a day to nap and knit. hope you enjoyed it!

Meggie said...

I can see that great big smile on your face from here...enjoy! Napping is always on my "to do" list.

So Much Fun said...

It seems like just a few days ago when you were posting about the first day of no school, now back to school, already? Does that mean cookie of the week again?
xoxoxox

Jess said...

That sounds lovely. If you ever get lonely, I have a little one you can borrow... :)
Enjoy! Nap a few extra minutes for me.

tiennie said...

Now that's a nice day!

Enjoy it. Before you know it there are all those holiday breaks:)

Alisha said...

The count down is one for me...three more days and even though I say I am gonna nap, I probably won't :)

Hope you enjoy your down time!!
