BACK TO SCHOOL BOO

I about fell out of my email inbox when I saw one of the messages in my inbox.
It was from Pottery Barn:

ACT NOW AND GET THEM WHILE YOU CAN.
TOP HALLOWEEN COSTUMES OF 2010 ARE NOW AVAILABLE AND ON SALE!

um, I haven't finished brown paper wrapping my sons' textbooks, and already it's Halloween?
I haven't finished choreographing my back to school happy dance yet.

Let me get these boys off to school, do the happy back to school dance with the rest of the moms, watch as the bus pulls them safely away from the curb towards the destination of ABC'S and 123's, before I start browsing the popular Boos.

Geesh.

I thought seeing Christmas trees with Pumpkins were bad.
This is just silliness.

Booohooo.

oh yes, two weeks back I went to a Christmas in July sale. When do your kids go back to school??? I thought it was after Labor Day?

Hi R.Savant!
Actually they go back Aug 24th.. pretty stupid if you ask me.
I love how advanced our world has become, but I would much rather have the kids return to school after labor day, have less days off during the school year then starting this early.

The private schools start even earlier.

Glad I'm not them. :)

I almost contacted you last nite, Marina came in from outside and had "hives" all over her-from the awful mosquito's-It was awful. I don't ever recall my childhood dogs having a reaction. I gave her benedryl and a cool bath, thankfully it worked. scary.
