Best Laid Plans
The children return to the halls of higher learning today. Invitations went out last week for the "Boo-Hoo/Woo-Hoo Breakfast" to a group of ladies who have celebrated together in years past as our assorted offspring returned to their various schools. Except, it seems that we usually met a couple of days after school started. And now I remember why. Most of the mommies we know are either previously committed or ready to be committed by the first day of school. A double-digit list narrowed to seven who thought they would attend, but by last night we were down to three. Then I ran a low-grade fever during the night. Fortunately, this year's breakfast had already been cancelled. Once the kiddies are out the door, there will be a quiet back-to-school celebratory breakfast with the mister, and then I am unceremoniously crawling back into bed.
