August has arrived. You know what this means, right? Only a month until school starts.
Time to start hoarding school supplies.
Time to sort through clothing that no longer fits the kids.
Time to buy school shoes.
Time to begin mourning the loss of long sunlit evenings.
The green grass has turned sharp and brown. The spider webs dangle in every corner. The leaves on the dying tree in the backyard already litter the patio.
My inconsiderate daughter insisted on being born on Labor Day. This year, her birthday is on the first day of school. I have to start planning her birthday party. Soon. Today. Yesterday. Tomorrow. Soon.
My husband is flying to California on Friday. He is in the process of interviewing for a job. In California. One day soon I’ll be able to explain more, but in the meantime . . . well, I can’t say a thing.
I took the kids to see “Despicable Me” in 3D today. I hate how much 3D movies cost. I feel like a grinch opting for the regular movie . . . but yikes. It cost me $57 for tickets. That’s nuts.
Anybody want to help me sort through and purge the closets?
My life would be greatly simplified if my closet contained only one size of clothes. Seriously.
I saw a young woman eat a Kit-Kat in church yesterday. She broke off one piece and then nibbled the sides off, up one side and down the other. I found the sight quite distracting and so did the woman sitting in front of me.
All I really want is to be alone in my house for a few days. Is that so much to ask?
Well, that’s not really all I want. I also want a Honda FIT. And I want some red, white and blue Chuck Taylors.
I bought a Food Saver for $10 at Value Village. They are on sale at Costco for $150, so I feel quite smug about this purchase.
