10 Things I’ll Miss…When School is Out for the Summer.

School ends this week–in 24 hours, to be exact. My freedom days are over.

10 Things I’ll Miss the Most:
1. Going to the bathroom alone. 
2. 6 glorious hours a day of silence
3. Leisurely, middle-of-the-day hair appointments.
4. Things staying where you put them and your house looking nice for a few hours.
5. Uninterrupted phone calls.
6. My Monday morning naps.
7. Watching trash TV while you eat lunch.
8. Grocery shopping alone…doing anything alone, I guess!
9. The occassional lushy lunches with friends.
10. Actually getting something done!!!

But on the bright side, you get 10 weeks without: 
• packing lunches.
• arguing about outfits in the morning.
• nagging about homework.
• fighting for a parking spot at pick up.
• being asked to bake for a bake sale.
• and dragging them out of their beds in the morning  kicking and screaming while swearing under your breath.
