Let's try this again

So it's two months later and I finally get back here. Email, Facebook, much technology me to keep up with. Rita, how do you do it all??? The emails in one of my mail boxes is way over 500! Baby steps.

The kids are going back to school in five days, and I swear this is going to be the time I get myself together. I'm going to clean my house (I think), clean up my flower beds for the fall (maybe), and go thru that pile of important papers that are shoved in a box (I have to do that.) Back to school is like New Years Day to me, the kids go back to school and I resolve to do all the things that I have neglected.

I just wish I had a teeeny weeney little portion of "type A" personality in me. I don't. I have more ADD to my personality than I care to admit. Why can't I stay organized or clean for just one week? Because if I could, maybe it would spill over to the next week and I would feel so good about it that a month would pass by and I would say "I was organized for one whole month, I can do this." Nope. Not for a month, not for a week, not for a day. Not on a boat not with a goat not on a train not in the rain.

To all of you out there who are sending their kids back to school (or already have) "Happy School Year!"
