This morning I drove my youngest to his first day at a new school. Then I took a 45 minutes brisk walk around the school's pretty residential neighborhood. 45 minutes later i got back to my car and there were quite a few mothers still at the gate wringing their hands or walking in small circles looking lost.
But not I ! And I would be lying to you if I said I was thinking about my child even once during my walk. After three months of summer vacation I feel I earned a little freedom don't you think? The air was cool, the streets empty and I was feeling ridiculously happy about the changing leaves, the pretty houses and all the gorgeous, luxurious, uninterrupted writing ahead!
In a few hours my husband will be flying home from New York and I can finally take a breath because hats off to you single parents, this is a hard, hard job to be everything to everyone at all time.
I am back at the keyboard baby. I am BACK! Yippeee!
