It's that time again...

It's that time again.  The time when school starts back up.  I'm a complete crank about it this year.  I'm thinking that I'm not over the moon for a couple of reasons that are really not related to school at all:  (1) It's been 108' this weekend, and (2) I'm still doing the job of 2 people at our firm, so adding on an extra job, doesn't seem all that appealing right now. 

So that means, that I'm feeling like Tommy on this first day of school...


My teaching schedule is crazy this semester.  I'm teaching 3 classes again, but I'm at two different campuses and the times could be a challenge.  On the bright side, I'm only teaching 1 night class this semester, so this means that I won't have to spend my entire weekend consumed by cleaning out my DVR from the prior week.  But for the luxury of not teaching so many nights, I have to pay the piper, which means.... A return of the 7 a.m. classes!  The good part of that is that it's only Tuesday and Thursday mornings, so I only have to get up at the crack of dawn twice a week instead of the three mornings as I've done in the past.  My third class is smack in the middle of the day (12:00-12:50), which I'm hoping works out okay most of the time. 

I am excited that a new start to the school year means Fall is around the corner!  Fall = football, cooler temps, a change in wardrobe, colorful leaves, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas (well decorating for Christmas is technically done in the Fall), and my birthday (yea for gifts, boo for getting old)!
