I have been puttin' in time as a WOHM for this school year (I had tenure, DH had poor job stability). We just started our last unit of study this week, I have almost everything photocopied and everything planned out in detail. I just need to grade SO much stuff (I have serious spring fever and keep procrastinating... esp now that they unblocked MDC on our network!) and ride out the last month. And it would be nice if DH's job hunt paid off soon! Then.... School's out foreeeeeeever! DD is SO excited. I'm glad she and DH had this year together, I really am... but I feel I've lost my mama mojo (so tired and it's hard for me to be the best teacher and the best mom I want to be) and the same level of connection I used to have with her. I know it will be a transition back... getting back into the homemaking habits DH has taken over (well, some just haven't been done for a year, blech, unless I did them occassionally)... but I'm SO excited!!!! I loved being a SAHM and this job went from part time like every other day to much more like full time (b/c of my school assignment and schedule) so I really mourned that as it slipped away w/o my even realizing... but the end is finally in sight!
