On a Happier Note...

I start school on Monday. My parents baby-sat Corduroy this weekend so that I could have one last swimming weekend in Tennessee. In addition to T.S. Stribling's autobiography (!!!!!) , my mother-in-law gave me two giant Pink Pearl erasers. I kind of have a thing for Pink Pearl erasers. She offered me two zebra erasers, but I'm an Old Fashioned girl. Abby gave me a folder with puppies on it and four animal pencils that I can't wait to sharpen. David bought me a binder with flowers on it, lots of quad-ruled filler paper and a composition book (also quad-ruled)!!! I could die in school-supply heaven.

I've also been given some good advice like that from Amanda who said "Don't be that old student who makes everyone stay late." I have to admit, I probably will be.

Though my body is twenty-nine (or thirty) though my mind is an old thing, I am always beginning the world. Karen Peris

Ha! That advice still stands. Really.

Can't wait to hear tales from your first day!

"If I knew you, I would give you a bouquet of freshly sharpened pencils"
one of my favorite movie quotes. Starting school is so hopeful. New year, new clean notebooks just waiting to be filled with learning. New friends, new possibilities. Aug-Sept is my favorite time of year simply because of school.

Be that old student. And dismiss the class when the hour rolls along [they'll appreciate that;-) ]

Oh gosh I was JUST typing that line from You've Got Mail in another blog comment. I miss school supplies.

Amanda, duly noted!

Elisa and Carla, you guys know me well enough for that!

Gene, I'm eager to be liked!
