Just finished Day Two of our school year...only 183 more to go!! We've been there since Monday getting "professionally developed", and the kids arrive tomorrow. It's always exciting the first week. Since I'm in grades 6, 7, and 8, I get to see the old ones and the new ones. It's fun!
I've decided to get my head "back in the game" this year at school. Last year didn't go well, and with my husband suffering all the medical issues he did starting back in January, it was more important that my energies were focused at home. This year I have a good schedule, I like each teacher that I'll be with, and more importantly than anything....I get to eat lunch with my pals!!
The weather here has been glorious since Tropical Storm Irene blasted her way through over the weekend. We survived relatively unscathed, although my sister suffered pretty serious water damage. Their family is safe, which matters most. We had tons of rain, some wild winds, but nothing serious. Our favorite state, Vermont, got hit damn hard, however...lots of devastation up that way.
Well, I'm off to iron my first-day-with-kids school clothes. Stay safe and healthy!
