August. The weirdest month of the year.

I hate August. No, I love August. I cannot wait for August to just end. I wish it could stay August forever.

August is hot, really hot. It's that last month of summer, and as always summer saves the real heat for the end. I wish the leaves would just start changing.

August is the last month of summer vacation. Soon, I'll be swamped with home schooling stuff, buying books, busy school year activities and driving everywhere. Getting up early, really early, so I can work out. Having to go to bed really early, like the same time as the kids.

August is football camp. This morning, NFL players got back on the field. College teams are gearing up. Pro teams are prepping for pre-season games. The Browns have not lost any games. The Buckeyes could be national champs.

August is weird. I can't decide if I am overjoyed that today is the first day of August or if I am just trembling with fear about what the month is about to bring.

I am totally with you, Lisa!! I was thinking the very same thing. I have been dreading the upcoming schedule and wonder how I'll make it through.

Back to the old routine soon. Which is both a good and a bad thing!

I hear that.

I have mixed feelings about August as well. It's one of the busiest months of the year for my hubby's job, so while everyone is off having fun on vacations, I have longer days with the girls. Sigh.
