the first day of school for them, the first day of (relative) freedom for me. both kids were happy to go back, and of course i didn't know what to do with myself. went to the gym, then checked out the thrift shop. got some new books (like i needed any more) and some nice clothes for s. met a friendly newcomer to the area with kids the same age. t & i took jane to elmo's for lunch, she cried the whole way there but was good while we ate & slept all the way home.
for doing next to nothing all day, i was exhausted and napped since t FINALLY is done with the deadline from hell and can hang out with us some more. he is at a tool show at the pbo fairgrounds with h right now.
s and i are going to read bruno the carpenter.
