I hate the first few weeks of a new school year.

So many meetings. So many appointments. So many supplies to buy. So many teachers to meet. So many lunch accounts to fill. New bedtimes. New carpool times. New homework philosophies. New expectations. New responsibilities. New reading lists to buy. New athletic schedules. New activities. New clubs. OVERSTIMULATED kids. OVER INVOLVED parents. Still so hot. Take me away already!

I hope to get back to my own life soon.


  1. Hang in there. A cooler, calmer wind will blow.

  2. Oh my goodness, shock horror I've actually won something!!!! I never win anything and I'm so sorry I missed your last post telling me that I'd won. I loved that post about 'Cockle' as I love to hear about the older generation. What great stories they tell us. Living in a Victorian house, I'm always imagining what people lived here and what were they like. The trouble is, I live in the U.K. so I don't want you to send it to me if it's too expensive. I wont mind if you want to draw the name again if it's difficult to send to the U.K. XXXX

  3. Good luck getting into your new routine. Just popped over and found all these gorgeous images. Fabulous. Julie

  4. I hope you are OK!! Hang in there. My boys start tomorrow and I'm still recovering from a very late party we hosted yesterday. I can't even focus on all I need to do before 6am tomorrow :). Remember the "Calgon Take Me Away"...
    I wish you a lovely and restful day Kim

  5. Love your choice of image - hope things improve soon! Leigh

  6. Both my girls are teachers...they would agree with you on this one.


You make my day when you leave me comments!! xoxo kim
