Back to School…

A pedi-party…better than a pity party any day! ~Bertha

It’s official…what not so long ago loomed before me as an endless summer…has quickly dwindled to the equivalent of a long weekend…only two short days separate me from…that four letter word…work

Now…I don’t expect you to feel sorry for me…I never felt compassion for those in the education system who complained about going back to school in the fall…when I had toiled away all summer…with or without a short break…

But…

This is different…this is me…and…when it’s moi…it’s always different…

The truth is…it doesn’t matter how much I whine…or…drag my feet…my days of sleeping in…if you call five o’clock in…are over…like it or not…work…here I come…

It’s been a whirlwind summer…visits with my daughters and granddaughters…book promotions…writing…book promotions…writing…naps…book promotions…writing…do we see a pattern there…these are the things that I love to do…and I honestly got a lot accomplished…even saw…Bertha…hit bestselling status on Amazon in two categories…and…I ate a lot of garden fresh tomatoes…who could ask for more…

But…those days are coming to a close…and days of boo-boos and tummy aches are upon me…along with the paperwork that accompanies them…now…in all fairness to my job…my school…and my kids…I do love my job…it’s rewarding and challenging…and I am grateful to have it…it’s just that given the choice and finances…I’d write fulltime…

So…what am I going to do with my last couple of days…about what I’ve done all summer…maybe throw in a bike ride…and definitely a pedicure…‘cause…Bertha…says that all the dragging of feet…has mine looking ragged…
