Too Early for Back-to-School Blues?
I’m not one of those people who starts lamenting the end of summer on July 5. Since I look forward to summer all year long, I really try to make the most of it and constantly remind myself that there are weeks left as each day flies by.
But here we are in the second week of August, and I’m officially down in the dumps. It’s not the back-to-school ads that started weeks ago or the nominally shorter days or even the fact that we only have only three summer vacation weekends left that’s getting to me. It’s the looming chaos I can’t stop thinking about. The crazy mornings, the fact that all three of my kids are going to new schools, the transportation logistics, the increased traffic, the homework, and probably most of all, the fact that since my husband is a teacher, he’s going back to school too. Carpeying the diem is definitely not one of my strengths.
Any suggestions for easing into autumn instead of falling face first?
