Goodbye busy, short week of setting plans in motion and meeting destiny at the door - welcome.
Goodbye severe pain in my neck that has affected my mood everyday this week - go away.
Goodbye setting many spinning plates in motion this week and hoping and praying I can keep them all from crashing to the ground.
Goodbye packing tons of s'more kits for tonight's football bonfire - Go Team!
Hello resting-up to tackle the only full week of school for the whole month of September.
Hello wondering when a 5-day school week became something to "tackle".
Hello homework on weekends - a new experience for us.
Hello family time and indulging in a new "What-we-do-for-fun" activity: watching old Leave It To Beaver episodes on NetFlix.
Hello watching those old episodes and wondering how it was really like in those days of prosperity, growth, and innocence.
