Happy September 1st .. This is when I normally go in Halloween Panick mode and rush around getting everything that I told myself I'd get done over the summer started and in the works. This year I'm contemplating what to do though, because my 'crew' has had the audasity to become adult children and go away to college. I've lost my art director, my oldest who went back to her Art/Bio major .. While I limped along last year without her, the big blow is my Everything Tech Guru ( middle DD) started Freshman year Engineering. I am left with my Husband, who is great and my total labor department. My youngest, who tried to ditch me last year for a party, yeah .. And me. Part of me is thinking about throwing in the towel, part really downsizing .. It just seems daunting for two people.
