Back to School Blues





I love the fall. Love it. It's my favorite season by far. I got married in the fall, I had a baby in the fall. And, fall means back to school. This has, at most points in my life, been a highlight of my year. New books, new stationary (I love new stationary), and all the things that go along with the beginning of the school year (clothes!!).



As I get older, however, back to school means much different things to me. Getting the kids ready for back to school (can you say "Mom's taxi??), getting ready for my classes (teaching this time round...yikes...when will they find out I really don't know what I'm talking about) and dealing with back to school traffic. An hour in Mom's taxi this am was enough to drive me to drink (it was 8am, a little early for drinking, even in mybooks).



So just as J. did the other day - I'm trying to find my silver lining.




This helps....

I heart yarn crawls. And thanks for being my fibre dealer. I do appreciate it.

I, too, love the fall. It may have to do with my passion for cords.

We definitely had fun! We'll have to do it again very soon. I hope you had a fabulous weekend with the girls. Did you teach Tam how to knit?

Are you teaching at the U? My husband graduated from Pharmacy at the U of A in 2006 :)

Mmm, food yarn.

I also love the fall - I'm not really a fan of crazy hot summer - I just wish it didn't lead to winter.
