We survived...and other stuff

So we all made it through the first day of kindergarten! M, of course, had a blast. She made a few friends, of which she remember zero names. Her teacher seems great, and she has a nice, small class. 16 kids...which I think is fantastic for living in the city. I also am so happy that her school does the Pledge of Allegiance and sings the Star Spangled Banner every morning. I thought they stopped doing that in schools, but I'm glad that they didn't.

But my new dilemma...what the heck do I do all day long with just myself and an 8 month old??? Sure, I clean the house, cook, laundry...all that fun stuff. But that doesn't fill up 8 hours of the day! I do have a quilt started for K that I could finish, and M wants one too. So I guess that is what I should be doing. I DO have to admit that it's nice to be able to turn on the TV and not be stuck watching PBS kids.

So, on my agenda for today: make menu for the week, grocery shopping, clean, laundry, figure out where the funny smell is coming from (stupid cat), hit the post office, and sell more crap on eBay. I put a few things on eBay and Craigslist yesterday and every.single.thing sold! Wooo! So now that it's just K and I during the day, we can secretly sell Jason and M's stuff and use the money to go shopping all day!! (Shhhhh)

Edited to add: For those that are telling me to stop my whining (about not having a clue what to do with all of my "free" time during the day) I am seriously not whining...just contemplating what to do with my time. I find it very mind-numbing to be bored, and I am not happy unless my time is spent doing something productive...that's all I was saying!

  1. Yay! That's great she is doing well! My "baby" girl is starting on Tuesday. I've had some similar thoughts too. It will be strange just having my eight month old here. I have to keep myself somewhat busy too, more than just housework. I think I am going to join a ladies' small group at church, and try to go to the gym more. Also, I am one of the leaders for a MOPS group, and will be volunteering once a week in my older kids' classrooms.
