Free at last! Free at last!
The house is so quiet I can actually hear myself think. Unfortunately, the only thought going through my head is "Go back to bed!" But that just isn't very productive. Besides the fact that I have to get ready for my own semester to start up again this week. Freedom is so short-lived. Already I'm fielding emails before the semester even begins from nervous students. I'm bracing myself for the onslaught of excuses, favors, extensions, whining, complaining, etc.
And it's not even September yet.
Now I can't wait for December.
Freedom is a relative thing.
But at least the kids are in school.
Sigh. I miss them.
