And the blessed quiet of school going back in session.
My kids love school. When I had the nerve to tell my eldest that she just wanted to get back to her social scene, she was quick to point out how much she loves the smell and feel of fresh looseleaf. That she's anxious to get back to learning. She did mention that to a friend, who basically said ARE YOU CRAZY?
Of course school also means the beginning of organized sports, as volleyball tryouts will start up mid-September. Band and choir begins.
It's not just the kids who look forward to it. I do too - and not just because my office is my own again after summer holidays. (Though admittedly - a work day that's uninterrupted is fabulous. As is working without television or arguing in the background.) It's a back-to-school energy that I totally understand when my daughter says she can't wait. When school goes back in session, so does my brain and my focus. I'm SO ready to get back to writing, I'm keen to organize and prioritize and just be productive.
Right now I'm working on a book due very soon, but I'm not worried because I have that positive energy thing going on - making me wish every day was like back to school.
