I keep starting posts and then saving them as drafts because they're too stupid... too boring.... too mundane. I can not, for the life of me, think of something to write about. I feel as if the top of my favorite ice cream cone just hit the pavement. Sad but not so sad. You know? Ho Hum.
I think it has to do with summer winding down and knowing that in a few days I have to go back to work. I like my job and I'm sure once I'm back seeing the kids every day, filling those ketchup containers, restocking plastic silverware and doing many other highly technical procedures..... I'll be fine.
Hannah has her few school supplies that she needs to start the year. We received a letter from her teacher a few weeks ago specifically requesting that we don't go over board on the supplies to start school because they are not necessary. He asked for a couple cheap pocket folders, a few pencils, a composition book, a 1" binder and a set of basic color markers. A couple of years ago, we spent the extra money and bought her an LL Bean Critter Pack because it felt like we were buying new backpacks all the time due to zippers breaking, holes appearing and whatnot. This backpack still looks as good as the day we bought it. Every zipper is perfect, there are no holes and this backpack has been dragged down the driveway, thrown in the corner, stomped on, sat on, machine washed, tumble dried and runover with a bike.
