Today is the last day of the girls’ summer break. Ten weeks gone — poof — just like that.
We had open house at school yesterday and met all the teachers. I think it’s going to be a great year.
Today, we have to buy more school supplies, pop by the orthodontist, go to the grocery store, get back-to-school haircuts, and prepare the girls’ backpacks.
Somewhere along the way, we need to just get over this jet lag and get our heads in the game.
This is the first time ever that I’m not fully on my game and ready to own the start of the school year. I’m working hard at it, but sometimes, these things can’t be forced.
By the way, in sorting through three weeks’ worth of mail, I realized that I had a metric ton of catalogs to peruse. Based on those, fall is on its way. Oh, and apparently Halloween is just around the corner. That means Thanksgiving and Christmas are next.
Before that, Ellie’s and Pete’s birthdays are in two weeks and Grace’s is two weeks after that. I should probably finish shopping for them, don’t you think?
I also have two races in the next three weeks, but I’m not thinking about those yet.
I’m going to go for a walk now and see if I can find the real Jen.
See you tomorrow.
