Finding time to think about school

Do you find that your brain goes into overdrive at certain times of the day? My is early morning and late at night... midday I'm in idiot mode. I couldn't come up with a creative thought right now to save my life. It's strange, really, how each person is different. I guess that goes with the whole morning vs night person.

What I hate is that right before I fall asleep is when I come up with my most creative thinking, but I'm too lazy to get up and write/type it out. I lose many brilliant ideas in the moments before slumber. I've had some good ones too, I know it, I just can't remember them.

Ok maybe they weren't that good.

I do know that summer vacation needs to be shortened. When you hear your child say "I'm sick of playing video games" you know it's time to go back to school. The demons have exhausted the trampoline, fishing and yes... even video games. I am hearing "I'm bored." so much now I could scream. They just don't like my ideas of fun though.. I've offered washing windows, hanging laundry on the line and mowing the lawn, they just won't bite on those fun activities.

Although Demon #2 did scrub the floor for me last week... she was excited to do it! I'm sure it was a once in a lifetime thing though. I'll never experience that again.

So summer needs to end. Now. 2 1/2 weeks to go.... it's just not soon enough.

I shall think about that the rest of the day. It's not a brilliant thought, but it's a thought.

Crap. I haven't even started school shopping yet.

I'm sure glad I don't have to listen to that old "I'm bored" routine any more, Well, maybe I'm not!!
