** deep breath **
So here we are.
Two days into the new school year, and I’m already wishing for a vacation. I actually looked forward to going into work yesterday, just to escape all of the school preparations for the week, because I literally spent all day Sunday shopping for school supplies, doing laundry, organizing, prepping lunches, etc.
Well, except for that little noontime sojourn to Michael Stars at Town Square ;)
Hey, all the new fall merchandise is coming out, cut me a little slack, ok?
Anyway, the mornings are quite a change from the laid back days of summer, when my days weren’t quite so regimented. But I must say, it’s a great feeling when I consider what I have accomplished before 8:00 in the morning.
Oh, and the most important thing? Making sure that Alexander keeps to his word (and his signed contract) to be ready on time…..
And when he sees this cake on the counter waiting for him, the day is guaranteed to start off on a positive note :)
