five days and counting . . .

. . . until the kid goes back to school. She's actually keeping the countdown. Last week, I was probably ready to start a countdown of my own, as she was finding an infinite variety of ways to get on my very last nerve—but as it stands now, I am actually the one who's sad that our summer vacation is coming to an end.

"But you're in Florida" you say, "It's a year-round summer vacation." Somehow, I don't feel that it will be like that. We'll see. Now I have to get everyone adjusted to a new routine. That's a job in itself, along with the twenty or so other jobs I have. But it will all work out. I'm looking forward to walking her to school every morning.

"How Little House on the Prairie of you," you might add. Damn right. Downsizing, simplifying, trying to find a little peace and hopefully burn off some of these eating-out-too-much calories—that's what I'm all about these days.

Enjoy the rest of your summer.
