It used to be that the end of the school year brought a pleasant, things-are-winding-down sort of feeling. One had time to sit and say "Ah" and contemplate all that the year had been.
This year, though, nothing is winding down. No one told me that as children get older life gets MORE complicated, not less. They have individual schedules, events, bills that go on well into the summer. My husband and I find ourselves going from work to chauffering duties to wallet-emptying sessions on a regular basis. When we find ourselves alone, we find ourselves exhausted.
Still, I'm glad that it's the end of the school year. I anticipate that someday soon I will, in fact, have my AH moment on my backyard patio. Except that I am such a TYPE A person that I will start to notice the weeds growing through the cracks in the bricks, and then I'll feel compelled to pull them out.
Someone teach me to relax in one easy lesson. :)
