Yesterday, I posted this tweet:
I’ve developed a habit of planning the following week every Friday.Next week is so crowded already, I didn’t add anything. #endofschool

Wednesday: Finals for Geeky Boy. Exam return day for me. Graduation rehearsal. Geeky Boy’s birthday.
Thursday: Finals for Geeky Boy. Graduation for Geeky Girl. Lunch with Geeky Girl and friends. Upper School graduation followed by reception.
Friday: Geeky Girl’s birthday. Multiple faculty meetings. Arrival of inlaws. 8th grade party for Geeky Girl. Various senior activities for Geeky Boy. Girls’ day with Geeky Girl (birthday present). Dinner with inlaws.
Saturday: Arrival of rest of family. Maintaining peace and sanity.

And did I mention that the US Open is happening like 1/2 mile from our house and half the roads are closing next week? And the house is. not. ready.
And I have so many plans. Cool things I want to do. Can it just be summer?
