Okay...

I wasn't really captured by crazed carnies. It was just more interesting than the truth.

The Man is a teacher, and I'm a preschool teacher, so back to school is killing us on all fronts. Between the Urchins getting ready, us getting ready, Oldest Urchin's birthday party on Saturday, my mother-in-law having cancer surgery tomorrow, and my father-in-law battling pneumonia, things are in ludicrous speed around Chez Quinn.

I have lots to share from camping, the back yard carnival and an award to graciously receive from the fantastic Marci Koski, plus general madness, but not the time to post it, soooo...

Bear with me. The craziness that is Tongue In Cheek will return. I'm just not sure when.

So here's some intermission music to tide you over in the meantime. (The chorus captures my sentiments exactly.)



Until next time, citizens!

Sounds like a ton of crap, hopefully the health stuff goes well for them.

Loni Townsend said...

Whooboy. Jam-packed life, eh? I wish you the best of luck with keeping on top of things, both school, child, and parental wise. On an up note, you won't have to worry about growing a beard.

Melissa said...

Damn, darlin'. I don't envy you right now. Take some cyber hugs and go have a glass of wine. I'll send some prayers for your in-laws, too.

Anna (herding cats-burning soup) said...

Oh my gosh. Yall definitely have your hands full! Lots of good thoughts for the parents-in-law.

Joylene Nowell Butler said...

Sounds like a busy life, Ava. Here in BC the teachers are on strike from last spring. Negotiations aren't looking good.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

I hope your mother-in-law's surgery goes well today.

S.K. Anthony said...

Best of luck to your mother-in-law! And wow you guys are busy! o_0

Hope your in-laws get some good news.
I am so excited not to be carrying about the start of school. I really don't miss when the kids were young and I had to make sure five people got ready on time in the mornings.

Back to school gets a lot of people, but ESPECIALLY teachers. I miss back to school. I may have to buy some school supplies just for the fun of it!

Cathrina Constantine said...

Oh man, sounds like you're in hyper speed, Good Luck!...I'll keep your in-laws in my prayers...God Bless!

Sherry Ellis said...

Sounds like you are super busy! Good luck getting it all done.

Ava Quinn said...

@Pat-Thanks, Pat. They're slowly on the mend.

@Loni- Thanks, Loni. And yeah, no beard is a big plus in my book!

@Melissa- Thanks, I needed those hugs! :)

@Anna- Thanks, I think those good vibes you sent worked!

@Joylene- Yikes! Here in the US, they took away the right to strike for more than I think, 3 days. So they took the teeth out of the union.

@Alex. Thank you. It went as well as can be expected. Now...recovery.

@S.K. Thanks and lol! :)

@Sue- Yeah, I hear you on the back to school sigh of relief. And thanks!

@Stephanie- I enjoy office supplies any time of year! :D

@Cathrina- Thank you so much!

@Sherry- Thanks!

Sounds like you have a lot to deal with! Best of luck on all fronts. I guess teachers dread the start of the school year as much as the students.
