today is Sunday

The title hopefully reveals my inability to, well, think. Today is Sunday; it is:

The day before classes begin.

The day before my two weeks off (granted–er, mandated–by the exam/diss committee) ends. Which means tomorrow, the dissertation project officially begins.

The day after we ran our first 20 to prepare for the Bath-to-Corning race on October 1.

The day that marks one full week of my two school-age kids’ absence (they’re with my mom until their classes start after Labor Day).

The day we decide whether or not to send the littlest to preschool this fall (open house and last-day-to register this afternoon).

The day I come back to the blog.
