1. I am sad that Paige is going back to school, I think I will really miss her, more than last term when I was over her being home.
2. Charli will miss her, it seems like she had only just gotten over the upset at Paige not being there all the time and then she had her back, only to lose her again.
So now, I am going to have to find all sorts of things to keep Charli busy so she doesn't get all mopey at Paige not being around to play with and still get the housework that I love so much done. Do you think that keeping Charli busy is a good excuse not to do it? Then when the boy comes home at the end of a long day of work, I can say "sorry I haven't washed your clothes/cooked dinner/vacuumed the floor, I was keeping Charli busy so she didn't miss Paige too much." It may just work, well, for a few days anyway :)
