School starts in a week, so this is one of the last of my lazy mornings of sleeping in a little longer and lolling around before turning on my computer. I haven’t even read the news at this point!
Nevertheless, I am looking forward to the new school year. Already as a child I liked the predictable rhythm of the school year, and the same holds true now. I like knowing that, every morning, I get up at the same time and go through the same routine. And I love the moment when, everyone gone — kids and husband — I have the house entirely to myself. It’s quiet, and I have this wonderful sense of a whole, productive day spread out before me. So, while this has been a lazy morning, I’m really looking forward to getting back into the stream of things.
