Taking a few days off

Here in Georgia, school starts NOW. Yes, at the beginning of August. Due to budget cutbacks they've cut our school year to 175 days, yet they've somehow figured out a way to begin school on August 5th. I have no idea how the school board managed this, but I guess that's where higher education gets you. You learn to magically make a shortened school year still stretch out for 9 months despite the fact that it seems impossible to do so.

Anyway, my much-too-short summer has now come to an end. Since I work for the school system, I'm having to get back into the swing of things, and it's been a rough week of waking up at 5:30 after 6 weeks of sleeping in, and I'm a little cranky. Of course, there's always the bright side...I just got to sleep in for 6 weeks, right?

That being said, the vacation is over, and the girls and I have been running around like chickens with our heads cut off all week buying clothes and school supplies and I've been working 10-hour days getting ready for my year to start, so I haven't had much time for reviewing new items. Therefore, I'm going to be taking a few days off to get my ducks in a row. I'll be back next week when I have something useful to say. See you then!!
