MJ, I am sorry about your loss, I can feel your heartbreak through your words and my heart goes out to you.

My kids don't go back til after Labor Day here in CT! I am glad though I LOVE having them home. I love the non schedule of things. My daughter will be a junior in high school and my son will be entering middle school in 6th grade. Then we go back to just me and the baby in the days.....both the big kids will be out of the house by 7am!!!!!

Mine went back this week too! I now have a senior and a sophomore! My senior was excited, the sophomore was not! LOL! It is his birthday this weekend and so he never likes going back to school for his birthday - at least it is on the weekend this year!

I graduate right after my kids go back to school and will be looking for work. My youngest is only going to be in 2nd grade and don't know any of my plans yet. Like if I get a job that starts before 9 who will get her on the bus, my oldest will be going to a different school so she can't help. UGH. Just have to wait and see.

Trying to get ready to go back to school, I'm a teacher, on the 10th. The summer went too fast.

Right now I'm trying to cope with the death of my beloved mare. I had her for 30 1/2 years and she was 31 years old. I'm having a tough time eating enough calories as I just have no appetite. I've still been getting my exercise by doing my farm chores.

My horse was with me during my teenage years, college, she picked my husband, and taught all four of my kids to ride. She inspired one to have a passion for horses, just like me.

Today is a new day and all I can do is try.

My daughter has been gone most of the summer, but she will be home Friday and then it will be a big push to get ready for senior year! We have school clothes shopping, hair appointments, senior portraits, summer assignments, orientation, and hopefully a few more trips to the water park to fit in before school starts on the 16th. Then, school starts for me the 22nd! I am enjoying my last few days of peace!

Ours still have another 3 weeks of vacation. I am hoping we can take a family vacation somewhere next week so that our kids can say they did something fun this summer. This has been a boring summer for them. They are too young to drive. My husband and I are both working during the day and so are their friend's parents, so they are pretty much stuck at home except for the few times my parents take them to the pool.

It maybe too late to go back and make a new start, but it's not too late to make a new ending.
