Back to School, back to the grind!


It's that time of year. As I regret that summer has come and gone, I'm glad to get back into the swing of things. I like structure, and I do better with my exercise during the school year. It's much less tempting to snooze the alarm when I know I have to get kids up and ready for the day as well. I also do better during the school year with planning ahead for meals, so, there you have it. Although, I'm not looking forward to the hectic schedules and policing the homework, I am looking forward to the structure, for a chance to get some cooler weather, to football and to getting into smaller clothes this fall. Happy Tuesday!

I love structure! I am struggling without it. But I also love the summer and we can't have both. :-(
Sadly I would have to settle for structure.
Happy Tuesday :-)

Happy Tuesday Tessie!! I like structure as well. School time always seems to do for me too.

Structure really helps me get accomplished what I want to, too. I don't work and hubby is out of a job, so we have very little structure right now, and it's hard!

Happy Tuesday to you!

Ahhhh, no more school aged kids living at home!! This is the second year in a row! Although I miss the structure, I do not miss the papers, homework, lunch money, bus schedule, clothes etc. I am however, looking forward to some cooler weather and football!

I just wanted to say that I love you! I was on LBT for the first time in three months, and I stumbled across a message you had left me back in December!

I struggle without structure as well. I'm very excited for school to start!

I kinda miss the chaos that back to school brought! Ok, not so much....but I do miss my girls and sometimes wish that they were still little and needed me more!

I'm with ya! I'm looking forward to back to school time as well! My daughter is only 2, but I teach, so I'm going back to school! Structure is good! I'm also looking forward to the weather being cooler. This summer has been hotter than hades! ugh.

Summer has come and gone? I guess for me here in Florida, even with me working for a univeristy and my daughter back in school, if it doesn't FEEL like fall, it is still summer for us! That is one of the reasons i am so excited about Chicago. It will be a bit cooler and actually FEEL like fall!
