Back to School

School just seems like the same old/same old. The first day of 2nd year started inauspiciously. Younger son was not feeling well, but had no fever and certainly wasn’t ready to stay home. He gleaned that there was a possibility of spending the day with Gramma and the coughs came – fast, furious, and loud. (We sent him to school anyway, but he convinced the schoolteacher and office personnel that he was too sick to stay).

I tried casual carpool this morning hoping to save money, but it took seven minutes to get a ride and there was traffic combined with a non-aggressive drive costing at least another 5-10 minutes. No surprise I was 15 minutes late to class. I’m not sure whether to give up or just keep track to see how much time I actually do need. It was great seeing my classmates again, but it surprises me how mundane it feels.
