My Last Independence Day

Every good thing must come to an end.

Yesterday marked the end of my days as an at-home dad without kids. I love my girls, naturally, but damn did I love my Tuesdays and Thursdays home alone.

The Mouse who, as of 1:07 am (ET) today is a 3-year-old, has been going to preschool 2 days a week, allowing me time to write, design, go to the movies, and generally live a fantastic double life.

The duality of my at-home situation afforded me oodles of time to be a dad alongside my silly little children and just enough time by my lonesome to satisfy another substantial part of my personality; the loner quotient. On Thursday, all that came to an end… but it’s cool, really.

The Mouse is out of school for the summer (the Bear joins her in a few weeks) and probably will not return in the Fall. The monthly tuition for 2 days a week is $472!  That ain’t peanuts! and my business, like most everyone else’s, is sloooooow.  Too slow to justify a $60/day bill.

How, you may be wondering, did I celebrate my final independence day?  Gym then haircut, laundry, prepping for today’s interview, listening to music, t-shirt designing, and writing –  in other words, just another day at the office…albeit, in my underwear.
