Ok, I'm Saying the F Word
It's been a rainy week, but muggy. Today though and this weekend, Minnesota weather folks are promising us a preview of fall, even though it's supposed to heat up next week to near summer temperatures again. I've got the two weekend countdown of procrastinated housework and projects before a house full, so will be out and about just in small spurts enjoying the cooler temperatures. It's raining now, and while I'd like to work from home, I have a couple meetings that need to be in person. Minnesota drivers become idiots with any precipitation, rain and snow, so the commute will be no less than an hour.
Wine club is tonight, but not sure if we will go or not. We might head there in time for the wine talk, but DH works until 6:00 and I hate rushing him to get out the door to get there at the beginning. DD2 is playing in a community concert in the morning, a kick off for the Arts Center open house later in the day. She just got new strings and is disappointed in how they sound, but I wonder if it is just that her old ones were so bad, she's forgotten what she is supposed to sound like.
If only snippets for now of the fall weather, our schedule tells us we are out of summer. DH had the first NFL game on t.v. last night and DD already had homework. I had a small pile of papers to read and sign; papers like emergency contacts updates, technology use and plagiarism agreements, also signed by DD, and others that I may not be sure I knew what I was signing. Signing a lot of papers is a sign of my fall. In reading what I've typed, it reads so dull, but we are busy. Busy with the everyday, the things that need to be done, and busy transitioning to changes in school and work for each of us. I guess the F word is here.
