Even though I no longer have students actually living in my house, my kids’ lives are still dictated by the school calendar. My daughter embarked on her final year of her master’s degree program last week. My middle child had his first day of school on Monday–this time as the teacher! And my youngest gets his new freshmen today (he’s a Community Leader, or what some schools call a Resident Advisor, in his dorm) and starts classes on Monday.
The start of school still marks a fresh start in my mind, so each new school year brings thoughts of new schedules and new projects. And this year should be a doozy! I’m ready to start work on my first novel since Playing by Heart. (Long story as to my 2 year hiatus from novel writing. Someday I’ll share it.) And at the same time, we are ready to do some updating to our house. I’m very excited about both of these projects! I’m ready for the creative outlets, but I’m also ready to once again have dedicated tasks for my mind and my hands.
So how about you? Are you anticipating any “new” things with the beginning of this school year?
