No School Blues Here

I’m on the countdown – only 12 days until school starts. *Doing a happy dance* I love my kids but am soooooo ready for them to go back to school. “Can we swim today?” “I’m hungry, what’s for breakfast/snack/lunch/dinner?” “I’m bored.” “Is it time to go to the movies yet?” “Mooooom, Jaren looked at me!”
All of our summer outings to the zoo/park/museums/amusement parks/mall have made me collapse into bed fully clothed every night. I can play Candyland, Connect Four, Monopoly, and Uno in my sleep. I'm having nightmares about riding the Pennsylvania Rail Line and crashing into the Candyland castle while the conductor yells, “Uno!” But I do have newly gained agility .... from playing Twister.
So, at last, we're finally getting ready for school. It’s a good thing interest rates are low; I’m going to have to remortgage the house to pay for school supplies, clothes, shoes, etc. Why do school supplies have to be new anyway? I’m sure I can dig out pencils, markers and erasers from the bottom of my purse. Hell, I probably have enough supplies at the bottom of my purse for the whole damn class!
Yes, I do shed a tear on the first day of school - not like those sappy moms’ tears of separation, though. Mine are tears of pure ecstasy.  Oh, thank God, I get my life back! In fact, I celebrate with my favorite coffee drink – Mexican Coffee. So, after your first morning drop-off, invite your girlfriends over and celebrate back-to-school with this wonderful coffee drink. And talk about all the escapades you can have now with the kids in school! Yippeeeee!
Mexican Coffee

1 oz. Tequila

Pour into Kahlua, Tequila and coffee into your favorite coffee mug. Garnish with whip cream. Recipe makes 1 serving. But make more!
