Confessions of a Befuddled Zen Buddhist

Back to School

Well, summer vacation is officially over.  It was back to school for the kids this week. 

Kids = Zen Master and Zen Mum.

It was a good summer but it’s really nice to have them back to work again, having something to do.  Zen Master had been so bored that he painted the entire house.  Last summer he puttered on the kitchen.  Zen Mum played Mahjong Titans on my laptop for hours on end.

They were going stir crazy over the summer. 

Which was making me go stir crazy.

If you’re wondering what they do, they work part-time in school cafeterias at different schools, but in the same district. 

I asked Zen Mum:  “So how does it feel to be back at school?”

“Same old, same old.”

I asked Zen Master:  “So how does it feel to be back at school?”

“Okay, what’s the big deal?”

And life is back to normal in our household. 

Thank goodness.
