Nate sighed and frowned as walked to Daniel’s car, blue LLBean backpack stuffed with second grade essentials. “I’m really going to miss you, Mom.”
This is the first year I haven’t gone to school with him, not packed my lunch besides his. I was a teacher’s aide at his school for two years, so we’ve always had the same schedule. But this year, I have a new job somewhere else.
A lot has changed at the Archer household in the past few months and today is where it all comes to a point: the first day of school.
It’s a new grade, new schedule, new job, new house. All requiring an insane amount of work.
Nate wore a frown as he and Daniel drove off, and I stood there, waving, still wearing my pajamas and bedhair. The silence and nothing-to-do-ness welcomed me back in the house. What on earth do I do now?
I took a nap.
It was FABULOUS. I also watched TV, shopped online. My new job starts in a couple of weeks, so my life right now is slow and really, really quiet. Tomorrow is a big day: a doctor’s appointment and lunch with Daniel in (GET THIS) the middle of the workday.
It’s like the best thing ever.
