Most people I know gripe and complain when it rains. Me, I have been waiting all summer for a good thunder storm. We spent a few years in Illinois when my hubby was stationed back there, and believe it or not I grew fond of the erratic summer weather. So, as we finally have our first good storm here in sunny SoCal, I want nothing more than to curl up with some hot tea and watch the weather rage. Now, if only they would cancel football practice????

So, as I sit here watching my poor daughter flip and flop on the sofa, trying in vain to fight off the fever that is plaguing her, I wonder if I am the only mother in the world that does NOT like the return to school! My kids have been back in school for two weeks. So far my son has missed two days and my daughter three. All from this wonderful virus that they brought home from the delightful petri dish that is a public school classroom. So, while many parents are glad to see the return of peace and quiet, I much prefer the noise and chaos that is summer... sleeping in, days at the pool, late nights and movies in the park. Tomorrow morning as my alarm screams 'WAKE UP', I will roll out of bed, drag myself into the kitchen, pour a cup of coffee and join my children in wishing for the return of summer. Or at least winter break!

WooooHooooo! Weigh Ins are finally over for my son's football team! All but two passed and we can reweigh them on September 5th. For any of you who have ever played or had a kid that played football, you know the pressure put on these kids to make weight. When we were done, all of the boys went and got a cheeseburger! LOL. And now, LIFE can begin again. We can go back to gymnastics, start our actual season, have more time for family, and generally breathe easier. SOOOOO EXCITED!! So now, one paper to finish by tomorrow and two books to write! Sigh... Let the games begin!

So, like most women, I wear MANY different hats; Wife, Mother, Student, Football AD, and Author. Oh, not to mention, taxi driver, housekeeper, personal shopper, laundry washer, pet groomer, carpet shampooer, house painter, etc. etc. etc.
So, today many of my 'hats' are all colliding into one giant mish mosh of OMG will this day ever end. And, it is only 9 AM. Even as I sit here, writing this post, my cell phone has blinged five times with new texts and I have three new emails! LOL. So, while I am getting everything ready for our teams Weigh Ins tomorrow morning at 6AM, I am also writing a paper for Cultural Anthropology, sending emails, sending texts, answering phone calls, and trying to work on my newest book... Actually, books. I have two in progress right now. There is a piece of me wondering WHY I choose to do all this, but the truth is I love my life. Even on crazy, chaotic, OMG Finally Friday's!
Now, if only I could sneak in a shower! LOL
