Back to school

in Essential Ramblings

This has been a fall of all falls hasn’t it? We have had earthquakes, flooding, rain, and general insanity for weeks on end, dumping us in the lap of back to school and leaving my “in box” full of emails and my to do list longer than ever before. I can’t complain in the face of people in other areas who have lost their homes, their livelihoods, or their belongings to the floods and flood damage, but I can say “wow, I’m tired”. The drama of putting together school items, getting our heads in the proverbial game, and preparing the kids for the back to reality schedule, all while juggling the calls from fix-it guys, Mr Rooter, and the other clean up team members, has put me in a tail spin and left me playing catch up with rsvps, weekend plans, and organizing our schedule for the fall. In case you are in the same situation, below is the short list of the greatest events coming up. So whether you are just behind, or if you are looking for a good fun event to attend…have at it!
