We are finally settling in to the new school year. Our afternoons are filled with backpacks and notebooks, and the endless variety of activities that we have signed up for this fall.
Sophie has begun three full days a week at preschool, which has suddenly given me a fair bit of time on my hands. I think I might be having a mid life crisis, except that I’m much too young for that! Trying to figure out how to spend my days productively without the kids around is going to be an interesting endeavor. There’s only so much housework one can do before one begins to feel like the maid and not the lady of the house:) I would love to spend the days reading and shopping, but alas, the Lord of the manor doesn’t agree. Lady of leisure is apparently not a title I am going to hold anytime soon. (Can you tell I’ve been reading a novel set in Regency England?)
So, I am off to plant a shrub. Then pick up his lordship’s medicine. Then his offspring. Lady of leisure indeed!
