The next night PVT and I were somehow, inexplicably, invited on a pub crawl via Party Bus. No, I can't believe it either. I was very, very excited. But we discovered that we really aren't cool enough for a pub crawl in a double decker bus. I had visions of us staying out until 4 am and dancing on the bar tops, but I should have known that if I drink when I don't have food around, I get tired and silly. And I was worried about the babysitter being out so late, and my own need to function the next day. What a party animal I am! So even though we went to fabulous bars with wonderful friends, by pub #3 we snuck out and took a cab home at the embarrassing hour of 1 am.
And the next day I was STILL exhausted.
It was a lovely night, but I guess I have to wait until I'm much older to go on another party bus, which is really depressing.

This post is almost over, I promise.
This morning things #1-4 went off to school.
Two of them were in new schools, so we were all a bit queasy.
Well, maybe that was the dog crap issues I also had this morning, but I can't even write about those without wanting to cry and puke a bit.
On past first days of school, I have loaded the elementary kids on the bus, and then met the bus there, parked, and waked them to their classrooms. The parking has changed, though, so this year I ended up missing them come off the bus, and then just ended up traversing the whole entire school with Sylvie and Margaux just to say "bye" (which was probably more of a disturbing interruption than anything else), and sweating very very profusely.
What a summer.
Maybe someday I'll tell you about the dog poop.
Then again, maybe I won't.
