We are all adjusting

After a summer that seemed to pass in a blink, we’re back on a school schedule that has Otto and Monkey heading out the door at 7:30, most days, and often not returning until late in the evening. Classes have started for Chickie, too, and she was kind enough to remember that I needed a picture on the first day.


(Why yes, it IS 95+ degrees and a bazillion percent humidity here every day, still. Don’t you wear skinny jeans and combat boots in that sort of lovely weather? No? WEIRD.)

Each of us is figuring out our new schedule, our new space, this next stage. I am still marveling over how smooth of a transition it’s been, although that doesn’t mean it’s easy, just that it’s bearable. I’ll take it.

    That sounds truly lovely. I am very, very glad for you all.

    It was really sweet of Chickie to remember the shoes pic. Don’t you remember those years of fashion before comfort?

    Chickie’s boots are definitely not the type of footware to shop for shoes in. All those buckles and ties!

    I’ll bet she’s in buildings that are A/C’d down to arctic temps. That outfit will be perfect. Except for walking between those buildings.

    Shoe picture was a lovely thought.

    I’m a bit weird, so I’d probably wear that exact thing. In fact, I really like those boots, so is it possible to ask where she got them? :)

      You can always ask! The bigger question is do I remember? I think that pair is from Target, either a year or two ago.
