Well, it’s almost that time again. Four free weekdays left for summer vacation and it’s back to the school year grind. Bubba and I both go back on Friday, which is rather strange, but it’s the first day schools are allowed to start the year in Iowa.

Bubba is going to be in the 11th grade and I will begin my second year of being a para. Bubba is not wanting to go back to school, I’m right there with him. We’ve been so busy the past few weeks, the thought of having less time to do work that needs be done has been causing stress of it’s own.

This year I will be working part time, the school is allowing me and another lady to job share. We really didn’t think it would be given the green light, still trying to get it sunk into my brain. Have yet to be excited about it when I know I should be dancing in the streets…so to speak.

We had a meeting a few days ago to learn our new assignments for the year, learned of all the things we now have to do and are no longer to do and feel like there’s a noose around my neck. I don’t recall school being so restrictive in my day in various arenas. Will see how it goes.

Have talked with my Old Boy about it and will give it until November 1. Thankfully I don’t have to work and don’t have to stay if I’m miserable. Hopefully just being negative being I’m not ready to have to wear shoes all day again.

Until Again,

School is back in session!  This is the first year in many that we only have one yahoo in school.  The Girl graduated college this past December and now The Boy is a Freshman in high school.  Thinking it should be bothering me, but this summer seemed to last FOREVER, so I’m reveling in having the place to myself to actually get some work done.  As I told The Old Boy earlier today, time to get the place back in order after letting things go over the summer.

Days ago I sat down with my notebook and added to the list of afghans to make, adding the kiddos who will graduate in May who are special to make afghans for. Going to have to pick up my game and increase my crocheting time from two hours a day to three or four…two nephews, two nieces and two cousins, also want to throw together a temperature afghan together for our 25th wedding anniversary in May.  Going to have to do better at managing my time, which is a goal I have for this school year.  Something I was really good at before The Boy was born.  

So, big plans for myself starting now!  Yesterday was chomping at the bit, so much to do and of course the patience of one thing at a time and everything not being able to be done at once, kept having to remind myself.  Absolutely positive right now and hoping I can stay that way.  One small step at a time, right!?  

Best Wish to All!  Peace!
