Last day

Today is the last day of school for my kiddos. My eldest gets out at 11 am (um, why send children to school for 2 hours?) and then I'm taking her and a couple of friends to see Evan Almighty. This is like a mini graduation party since they are moving on to middle school next year (my daughter couldn't care less about it though as she already went to middle school in California and said the kids at her school were very "rough")

My middle child gets out at the normal time. I also have to go in at noon and help out with her ice cream party (you know if the words ice cream and party come together I'm so there)

My middle and youngest children only have two weeks of vacation before school starts. Don't pity the child. They had the whole month of May off remember? I am super excited too as they changed our track assignment and we are now better meshed with my oldest daughter's traditional middle school calendar. My oldest has a full summer (um what the hell am I going to do with a 12 year old all summer?)

Oh and for those of you that think I sit around and watch tv all day, I don't. Yesterday I fixed my broken washing machine all by myself bitches! Damn skippy. I googled that shit, came up with an answer and fixed it. Gots to love them internets.

Well I hope you all have a wonderful weekend full of fun, booze and debauchery. See ya!

    That year round schooling sounds cool. Wish we'd go with it here in Bama.

    Dayam girl! You're my hero fixing the washing machine. I hate touching appliances of any sort. They always seem to short out on me. Must be my "electric" personality.

    ummmmm can you come fix my lawn mower, I tried and broke it even worse. The house elf has looked at it and that's as far as it's gone.

    Got time to fix my dishwasher? Even with the internet...I'm stumped...I think it may need a flux capacitor or something.
