I always wanted to be somebody, but now I realize I should have been more specific. – Lily Tomlin

Oh Monday… how I loathe your return every week.

The realization that my kids will soon be returning to school hit me like a ton of bricks this weekend when the school supply list was published in the online newspaper.  Just 2 weeks and 3 days until the dreaded 5:45am alarm clock will once again be disturbing my beautiful sleepy time.

Now my dreams are being invaded by images of composition books, 2 pocket folders, Germ-X, and glue sticks.  I haven’t even thought about school clothes yet.  The only real decision that I have made is that I’m going to shop at Target this year.  We usually just go to Wal-Mart, but I’m really despise going there.  I would love to see a Super Target in our area.  Then I would have no reason to ever go to Wal-Mart.

There is a good side to all this.  Both of the kids are happy with the teachers they’ve been given.  They even have friends in each of their classes.  I am optimistic that this school year will be a good one.   Hopefully….
