I have posted to one class but there is already another Discussion Board posting to make and I have to make an argument. *breaking into a cold sweat*
Another class has two questions posted that I have to answer and I'm not sure how the questions relate to the chapter we have to read. *gulp*
My third class hasn't had anything posted to it yet although, the prof. e-mailed and said she's working on it. *love you!*
Remedy: Lots of beers. No, wait...that's the cure for the family reunion. The remedy for the first week of class is deep chest breathing, yoga, soft music, and only concentrating on one task at a time...

I woke up Tuesday morning to the sound of leaves. We had a pretty good breeze going and I could hear the sound of Fall through my open window. Next, will come the smell. I'll walk out of the house one day and I will get a nose full of the crisp, clean air of autumn. It smells like Halloween to me.
Most people consider Spring the season of renewal. I think it comes at the end of the year. Fall sweeps through, getting rid of summer's green and Winter wipes the slate clean...well, depending on where you live (I can't imagine Christmas in the southern states).
Sure, everything is reborn in Spring, but I feel the newness much sooner. Fall brings new books, classes, pens and pencils. There are new clothes, new teachers, and new book bags. For me, Fall is a fresh start.
Maybe that's exactly what my 16 year-old needs.

This is my oldest. My first born ball of sweetness and bull-headedness all wrapped up in one. She's fighting with her boyfriend tonight and she won't talk to me. I hate that. She thinks I don't get it. She thinks I was born 36. Maybe she's right but, I distinctly remember being a teenager...really!
I guess I'll just go read my textbooks and wait until she's ready to talk. Hmph!
