“I killed them. I killed them all. They’re dead, every single one of them. And not just the men, but the women and the children, too. They’re like animals, and I slaughtered them like animals. I HATE THEM!” – Anakin Skywalker, Star Wars II: Attack of the Clones
Alright, maybe our first day back wasn’t that bad. No one was slaughtered because of it, but – woobaby – I certainly wouldn’t have bet on both of us making it to 5 pm yesterday. What a lousy way to start a new school year. Three hours of work took from 9 am to 4 PM! With much griping and complaining and yelling and sarcasm to be had – (those last two from both of us I’m honest enough to add). If we’d had any whiskey in the house, I probably would have spiked my tea.
Today, though, was much better, great even. Was this just a further sign of puberty, too little sleep, or the rather pointed reminder that there’s a middle school within walking distance? I don’t even care; I’m just glad it didn’t continue into today. Today was more like our norm. Work, jokes, discussion, and remembering why we do this. Ahhh.
Anyone else get off to a rocky start this year?
