UH OH.... OH NO!

Over the past few weeks I have been so preoccupied with Gabe's pending homecoming that I completely overlooked another, more ominous countdown... the last day of school!  On May 23rd the Oompas shall run screaming from their perspective schoolyards and will haunt my home for the next 12½ weeks.  At the elementary school the staff is already rejoicing as they prepare to bid farewell to the last of the Oompas.  Over the years they have been entrusted with the education and incarceration of all 5 of the Oompas and they look forward to the upcoming school year only for the fact that for the first time in 12 years they will be Oompa-less.  I also look forward to the new school year so that I may know the peace and tranquility of being Oompa-less, even if only for a few hours a day during the week.  But before that, I must survive yet another Summer Siege in Loompaland.  (and people wonder why I drink so much coffee!)
