Where did summer go? Sure was a hot one. August has been decent. I think the a/c has only ran two or three times. Work has been crazy the last couple of weeks. All those families getting that last vacation in before the kids go back to school.
Speaking of school, OMG!!!!! I cannot believe the supplies kids' parents have to get for them!!!! My co worker and friend has 4 kids, (3 are hers, the fourth is her cousins and she has legal guardianship over) and the supply list includes things like an scientific/graphics calculator, which costs around $80! The list also has dry erase markers on it, highlighter, 2g usb drive, ear phones for computer, and so on. Damn! When I went to school, all my parents had to worry about getting for my sisters and I were clothes, shoes, boots, winter coats, mittens, and hats. Things like books, paper, pencils, etc...were supplied by the school. Now, it costs a parent almost $500 per kid. Wow! That's all I've got to say.
My classes start next week. And I'm looking forward to it. But, looks like I'll be taking an extra semester because the class I need to take before I can take the internship wasn't offered for this semester. So I'm taking some of the electives this semester. So, hopefully, the class I need will be offered next semester. I'm almost there! It's going to feel great getting that degree I started so long ago.
Amazingly, the dogs have been well behaved. Yep, I'm talking about the same dogs who have managed to get out of their fenced yard a couple of times, or hang out the window while I'm mowing the lawn, those dogs.
Well, I'm off to wander and see what fun is going on over at the vanilla side.
