Time for School

The other day I was bemoaning the fact that I had to start back to school August 16th. I realize I am lucky to even get "the summer" off, but that doesn't make it any easier to go back once those 9 weeks are over, especially if you spent 6 of them getting radiation. Waa, waa, waa. Yes, I DO want some whine with my cheese!

All that aside, it is time for school. There is no denying it. Summer is over.
I have noticed the angle of the shadows have changed, the quality of light is different then high Summer. It's dark earlier and the sun is rising later, nights are cooler.
So, complain all I want, the season speaks for itself. Fall equals school.

Summer is the time I build relationships, visiting people I don't get to see very often and going to lunch with friends and relatives.
It is about the only time I shop for fun.
It is the time I usually pursuit some creative activity and enjoy cultural events.
Summer is the time I am outside.

I need to find a way to fit these activities in during the working portion of the year, dinner instead of lunch, indoor concerts in the place of outdoors, quick weekend trips. Shop on my way home from school and don't wait til Saturday to clean and grocery shop. Yeah! that's it! I'll let you know how it goes.

In the meantime, I am at school. Next week will bring the students and after a week it will feel like I was never gone. I love my job!

I have such mixed feelings about starting school. I am excited to meet the students.. but at the same time it marks the passage of time.
But in spite of that.. I love my job and wouldn't change it for anything.

Starting school for you, and the change in the air with the weather can only mean one thing for me..

Spring is here, Summer is on it's way.
Oh, and by the way there are only three more sleeps before I am in Utah.

Wahoo!!

Tis the season for Xanax! I get such anxiety this time of year- as the days get shorter & Andrew starts school.

....I feel my blood pressure rising just thinking about it!

I would love Xanax if I could get it every day until the day I die.
