5 days and counting….or 4 days

I always have a hard time with countdowns. I’m never sure when I should start counting or what. I’m ready to go back to school. I love this time of year, especially with this weather. It is beautiful. High 60’s – low 70’s. Wal-Mart and every other chain store aisles are packed with Back-to-school stuff. I absolutely adore pens and paper and markers. It gets me so excited. I’m reminded of a quote: “Don’t you love New York in the fall? It makes me wanna buy school supplies. I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address.” Bet nobody can guess what that is from. Mmmm….a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils. I don’t know if that would excite me much. Pens on the otherhand – that’s a different story.

Well, I just got back from the shot clinic where I received 2 wonderful shots. These were necessary in order for me to go see my sister and the baby and my bro-in-law at Christmas. In half an hour, I will go to work. I’m tired of working. I worked so much this weekend. 6 hours here, 7 there, and 12 on Saturday. Yep, 12 hours. Did anyone else cringe at that thought. I worked 7 hours last night which was absolutely awful. Coupons just came out. People are so excited when coupons come out and they ransack the place. It was nuts and I nearly lost it. I don’t like it when I almost lose it. But, on the other hand, I made a $100 in tips. That somewhat makes the night worthwhile. Not completely though. I am very much looking forward to being back at school. I dreamt something really weird last night though about North Hall and all its mysteries.

Off to get ready for work I go. Actually, I’m going to find a Mountain Dew. Yes, a Mountain Dew at 10 in the morning. Have a lovely day!
