no ‘and then’

the last two weeks feel like
i’m in a fight with the
‘and then’ lady.

remember her?

we do what the calendar says +
then when we report back,
the calendar keeps saying,
‘and then’

and we go again.

and then the end-of-school-year calendar says,
[sarcastically?]
‘and then’
and off we go again.

uncle! mercy!
i give up!

well,
we’re almost there.
one more week of too-much-happiness to go.
hooray.

meg-behind-the-camera

and then,
and then…

ps –
on a serious note,
we’re trying to think through
how to best handle the
end-of-school-year thing
in the future.

esp considering that we’re
a family of 4 children,
and each-and-every (seemingly)
activity anyone is in has
some sort of end-of-year-something.

we’re going to have to choose
wisely + premeditately
what to hit,
what to miss,
how to make wise decisions
on what to participate in and
what to sit out of.

or what part of the family should do
but not make everyone go to everything.

which is sort of how this month went.
everyone.
everytime.
allthetime.

oy.

or maybe i’m the only feeling it?!
and they’re loving it?

hmmmm.
