I've been sitting here staring at the screen trying to come up with a "Back to School" post, but nothing was really coming to me.  The reason?  I'm not really ready for back-to-school.  Yes, I am one of those moms.  I'm not doing heal clicks as my kids board the bus.  Instead, I am sad that our days of summer are over and mourning the fact that ALL my kids will be in school full-time this year.

Now do NOT misconstrue anything, I am definitely looking forward to ending the bickering.  My kids have been spending WAY too much time together and the bickering his out of control.  So no, I will not be missing that.  I'm also looking forward to a little bit of routine.  I get lazy when there isn't a schedule.  With a schedule I'm more regimented in my planning and my life just seems to run more smoothly.

So instead of back-to-school, I've decided to say farewell to summer.

Goodbye MS 150
