The end of the school year is like a dizzying ride on a carnival spinner attraction. You know the ones that spin you in circles again and again and again.
With two weeks left of school, I've already supplied auction donations and face painting supplies. And scrounged up 20 glass jars in order to make lava lamps at the science fair. Field trips and class parties. And many preparations for the annual arts celebration.
It's all good stuff. Good stuff for sure. But I can't help feeling a little scattered. And weary.
For the merriment is far from over. We've still got an overnight stay at the big city zoo, art shows, chorus concert, spelling bee, science fair, field day and the yearbook signing party.
Tell me I'm not alone.
Tell me the endless running will soon be over and I can take a deep breath of summer.
And please tell me that in all of my haste I won't leave the house with toothpaste on my chin.
If it's more quiet than normal around here, assume that I've fallen and can't get up. That or the munchkins have hog tied me to the minivan and are demanding mirth and good cheer.
