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.

I hear ya about the cost of school supplies. I don't know why Indiana can't take that mega money they pull in with the lottery and use it to foot the bill for all school supplies. I think Ohio use to pay for what kids needed...don't know if they still do or not. I just don't know how big families do it anymore.

I remember over the years, at the end of the school year, you'd see in the newspaper where the school would be suing families to get their money. I had to wonder if these were struggling families or just deadbeats trying to duck outta what they owed.

Can't tell you how proud I am of you... You've worked so hard and gone to school, too. That isn't easy. But I hear the joy of achievement in your words when you write about it. Gives me warm fuzzies... Keep up the good work.

Yeah, our weather has cooled off. In fact the nights are downright chilly. But it's suppose to be 90 this Friday...dangit. I'll take the low to mid 80's over that any day. I'm burnt out on summer heat...literally...

MIddle schools are starting to demand an english/spanish dictionary as well. I could not believe the crap I saw on the lists. I'll be damned if I'm supplying classroom tissues. No.

Interesting.. isn't it? Just an aside. Two weeks ago the online count was in the 30s at any given time, this week, 100! Hmmm.. drama tastes goooooood!

Sounds like the school systems are shoving more and more of the expenses on the backs of the parents to me anyway!

Not only does the school supply list cost a fortune but my son's school doesnt even give them out ahead of time anymore. We get the list after the first day and have to rush out an get everything hoping I have saved up enough cash to do it all at once.

Yeah, I had to buy all of that crap for my grandson a couple of weeks ago.What a pain in the ass. In California where I grew up the school provided everything.

From what I saw a bit ago, a lot of action from people with too much time on their hands in pissing contests with politics. Makes ya wonder if any of those people actually have jobs to go to.
