I love the Fall... everything except "back to school supplies". When I see them in the stores I get that "lump in the pit of my stomach" feeling... Why? Next I'll see pumpkins... and I've hardly had watermelon this summer! Once it's "close" to August...summer seems to go "down hill" for me - it's obvious the days are shorter and the mind set is no longer "summer holidays". Back to school this year for me is getting our son acclimated into an off campus house - something he deserves, something he'll NEVER be "ready" for - he has to be "thrown into it" and learn as he goes... me too... a very nostalgic day - I better stay out of Staples!
