Plus: Project Runway is back!
Minus: All the judges seemed hyper-bitchy in this first episode. We’ll see.
Plus: We have a lot of fun things planned for the summer ends–a short beach trip, a movie night at our local football stadium, a pre-season football game, Rock the Bells including Lauryn Hill, which I’m so excited about I can hardly stand it. Also a dinner party or two, plus a bridal shower and a baby shower.
Minus: Have you ever planned a whole bunch of exciting plans and then realized how much money all those exciting plans were going to cost you? At the end of a relatively pricey summer? Right before the inevitable money-sink that is back-to-school? Well, I have.
Plus: I have checked a LOT of items off my “Summer To-Do” list. And yes, I have an actual list, with subcategories.
Minus: There are some big items still left on that list. And hey! Some of them cost money!
Plus: I’ve been going to the gym lately, which was a big item on my “Get healthier and more responsible and stop treating your body like a teenager now that you’re in your thirties” list. I think I also expected a responsibility trophy.
Minus: I’ve not been going thrice-weekly as I hoped. More like once-weekly or sometimes twice-weekly. And I still don’t enjoy it. At all. No trophy for me, I’m afraid.
Plus: I’ve read some really great books this summer. Yes, I will be blogging about them soon, I promise!
Minus:The school-related books have languished. As has a lot of my school-related work.
Plus: I think my girls have had a really fun summer.
Minus: But they’ve also been suffering from a case of the Whiny-Crankies, which has resulted in a lot of bickering and complaining. I have not handled this with my customary poise.
Plus: I have some really wonderful people in my life.
Minus: I can’t fix what might be making them unhappy, and I really wish I could.
