Lots of folks think this is just the best time of year. Okay, most of them are parents. But there are a lot of kids in that number. They have to be bored too. Most of them say if often enough that it must be true.
As back to school time is now college for two of my children. I don’t look forward to the tuition bills, so I make them pay their own. Hehe. Okay, we pay part of it.
But that’s not really what this is about.
You see, during that other wonderful time of the year, we are busy doing things for our loved ones—baking, buying & wrapping presents, and attending parties where relatives bring up embarrassing stories from your past.
Thankfully, this wonderful time of the year doesn’t entail that. It involves back to school supplies. And while I dutifully purchase these for my children, I also have my own stash.
I love the colored pens for editing and I keep all my notes in composition notebooks. I have thought about using one of the nifty new computer programs to organize my writing stuff. Then I scratch a purple gel pen across the paper and such nonsense goes away.
Yep, it’s a wonderful time of year. And thoughts of those pens and books put a little extra zing in my step as I enter a grocery store.
Whatever your reason (child-liberation, fall color, or discounted office products) enjoy the season!
