O' where, O' where could it be?
Somehow, when I wasn't looking, summer left. It has been replaced with the liquid sunshine that us Pacific Northwesterners recognize. I've also noted that it is a few weeks early, so my depression will start setting in sometime during mid-November instead of the normal January 2nd.
This is not good news for my family. They are already planning their escape.
With the rain comes "back to school" time on the homestead. There are no more lawns to mow, no weeds to pull, and the kitchen is finished (mostly), so no more excuses. Jabez Academy is officially back in session.
Can you hear my kids crying with glee?
Hey, this is my delusion and I'm going to call it glee.
Except for the wailing. I don't know what to call that.
