Having a Rant: The I'm-SO-Over-The-School-Year Syndrome
I'm over it. BIG time.
Firstly, I'm over school lunches. If I see one more vegemite sandwich and have to cut one more apple in to teeny-tiny bite sized pieces to make it acceptable for my sons' morning munch-n-crunch snack, I might actually go mad.
I don't want to wash drink bottles every night.
I don't want to hunt down lost lunch boxes at school anymore. Like, every week.
I don't want to hunt down lost jumpers, hats and swimming goggles from the lost property basket at school. In fact, if I have to go through that basket just One. More. Time (it's essentially dirty washing in there, people) I might throw a hissy fit.
I don't want to nag my kids to do their homework anymore.
I don't want to remind myself what excursions are on, and which day they have to wear their swimmers under their uniform - and by the way: what uniform should they wear? Sports or formal?
I don't want to go to after school activities anymore. I don't want to watch tennis, swimming and cricket training.
I don't want to have another weekend that is filled with activities each day. I just want to sleep in the morning knowing that I don't have to be anywhere if I don't want to be.
I don't want to attend any more school related meetings. I've loved my role on the P&F Committee - especially writing for the P&F in the school newsletter - but now I need a break.
I just want the school year to end now.
Before it does though, there will be school/daycare concerts and other school-related planned activities.
I'm just gonna have to suck it up. Yep - I have the I'm-SO-Over-The-School-Year Syndrome.
But come mid-December, I'm in all-day pyjama mode, ya'll.
Are you looking forward to the end of the year?
