Since we're in beta, we're learning a lot, and one thing I'm learning is that if I'm gonna be everyone's friend, and my last blog post is going to show up on your home page, I really can't leave the same post sitting there for a week or more. But I did this week, and I'll try not to do it again!
I had an excuse, as I let everyone know in my last post. And just briefly: The graduation was terrific, the graduate was gorgeous and very, very happy, the party was great, my visiting family behaved very well, it all was lovely. Now it's back to real life, and here's the real kick in the ass: I realize, it's endless summer for me, and I really don't like it! Now that I don't have to wake up and help get Nora to school, I don't have to wake up until I feel like it. Luckily, I feel like it, generally, early enough to get to work, but not early enough to go to the gym and/or read the New York Times or get a jump on email or...really, do anything besides shower and get dressed.)
This is going to be a problem. For 15 years, since she started preschool, I had getting Nora up early to shape my morning and order my slacker life. Every summer I've struggled to stick with my exercise and news routine and mostly failed, but I've known September (really late August here in California) would get me back in shape. But now I'm on my own, permanently.
It's OK. I've enjoyed being a slacker this week, I deserved a break. But what happens next?
