It’s the first day of September, and for me the summer is over. But August had a lot of sweater days this year, surprisingly. Maybe that’s my own crazy body temperature, I’m not sure.

Anyway, the teachers report back on the 6th, the kids the following day. But in the meantime, I’ve gone from bailing out the basement post-hurricane to working up a storm at school getting the library ready. My mom, my niece, and my nephew all came in with me today to help process books and move stuff around after some library changes at the end of the last school year. They were such a huge help, I don’t know how I would have done it without them. I had terrible luck going in early this year: last Wednesday my mom came with me, we had to leave an hour later so the floor could be waxed. Next day Adam was off from work so he came to help, but my carpet was being shampooed. Then the hurricane. Now I’m running out of time, and I’ve got to get stuff DONE!

It’ll all be good by the first day of school.
