End of summer just snuck up on me this year, I tellya! It seems like Meego just got out! But oh well, now we're ready. Essentially.
Besides, it still feels like summer. It's hot out, or it's rainy. Plus, Chaco and Wolfgang have their move-in day on Friday, so I'm still surrounded by all their dorm junk (we decided to forgo the storage unit) and then some.
Neither of them has done anything by way of packing. *sigh*.
I, on the other hand, started the week with about a mile-long "to do" list, and I've been scratching things off with wild abandon! Maybe I've just been too busy to be annoyed about all the clutter that needs to be put into packing boxes.
Of course, I'll miss having Chaco and Wolfgang around, but their stuff? Not so much. My minimalist tendencies have been stretched to their limits.
But things are easing up. I now feel like we're in school mode, just a couple of days late. The elementary school is once again looking to hire a crossing guard at my old post. My replacement decided one year was enough. I briefly thought about it as my class schedule would allow for it, but naaaah. I've just been watching to see if anyone else takes the bait.
Maybe if the post is still open after testing season settles down and my tutor schedule isn't so full, I'll take it as a sign. Plus, by then the school would be desperate. They might throw in a stylish new vest.
But maybe I should remind myself that "Work outdoors!" involved more days like this:
and less like this:
