10 To Do-Not's for June

I've never been much of a to-do list maker so I'm going rogue today and making a list of ten things that I will NOT do for the rest of  the month of June (one more day of school!) in response to Mama Kat's writing prompt...Ten To-Dos in June.  

1. Get up before the butt crack of dawn.  Nope.  Ain't happenin'.  My old friend, Sleep, and I are going to have us one heck of a good time reunion.   

2. Feel like a complete imbecile because I can't figure out the 7th grade math homework and be forced to say, "You're going to have to wait until Charlie gets home.  I've got a splitting headache"!  

3. Make breakfast and pack a lunch while it's still dark outside, before my eyes are completely open and before I've even had so much as a whiff of coffee.

4. See the middle school's number on caller id.  Not.even.once. Ahh...Sweet bliss.  

5. Make two separate trips daily to pick up kids at two separate schools who inconsiderately insist on a 55 minute difference in their release times.  

6. Lose any sense of sanity I had left before 7:00 a.m. because THEY WON'T STOP FIGHTING OVER THE BATHROOM SINK! 

7. Be forced to crack my whip and lose my temper in order to get  homework done. Never mind that I'll still have to do that to get the daily chores done.  Positive thoughts...positive thoughts....

8. Feel like the heel on a piece of burnt toast all day long because the first morning hour went so many different kinds of wrong.  

9. Enforce early bedtimes for the night owls.  Myself included.  What can I say?  They get it honest.  

10. Hurry the days away.  Nope.  I'm gonna soak up every last drop of each and every structure-free minute.  

Now come on, June 8th!

  1. I love your not to do's! If I had not to-do list, for June, it would look very similar to yours! And what's up with these schools dismissing 55 minutes apart? I have the same thing in my town too. Ugh!

  2. One more day and you're there! Oh man, it all sounds good to me!

  3. Love your twist on the prompt! Bravo! I'm with you on sleeping in and not getting up before the butt crack of dawn. One more day and counting....

  4. Nice list.

    There are times when I don't even understand FOURTH grade homework so don't feel bad..

  5. Sounds like it's going to be a sweeeet summer for you!

    visiting from Mama Kat's.

  6. Enjoy!!! Your slower pace is much deserved!

  7. Sleeping in for me, so far, has been downright HEAVENLY! I'm milking it for all it's worth! Now, what happens on June 8th? Vacation plans, I take it?

  8. I'm a little jealous. As soon as they are out of school, we go into camp mode, which means getting out of the house 45 minutes earlier and more structure every day...

    But no home work... THAT is something to get excited over!

  9. I'm going to adopt your june "rules", too. Now that I am done taking my girls to PHS every morning by 8 for driver's ed. After almost 2 weeks at the beach, it was like being back in school!
