It’s that time of year again when most parents are eagerly awaiting for school to start. It’s been a long summer and it’s been a lot of fun, but enough is enough. Parents need me time every now and than.

Don’t get me wrong. I love my kids and I love spending time with them. But working overnights and then watching them all day while my wife is working gets to be a little intense on 3-5 hours of sleep a day.

It was a good summer, I finished writing my first mystery novel end of april and i am close to the half way mark on my second one. My kids have taught me wonderful things during the summer and I will miss them while they are at school all day. But I’ll love the extra sleep I get a little more.
