Always in catch-up mode...

This week, my mom has been back at school preparing for the new school year to begin and I found myself getting sad that summer was coming to an end. Then I realized that my life schedule no longer revolves around semesters and that the year actually begins in January, not August. What an odd feeling! Sometimes I miss having the structure of a class schedule and the constant ticking things off of my semester To-Do list. I still have the constant To-Do list, but unlike in school where there's an eventual graduation, my work now is never ever going to be done.

Although I'm pretty bummed out that I didn't find a teaching job for this school year, I think that it's obviously not what I'm supposed to be doing at this time. I know that when the time is right for me, I'll find the right teaching job somewhere. I do have to admit though, seeing all of the "back to school" Facebook statuses from my teacher friends does kind of make me sad every now and then. But then I wake up at noon and I feel like it all evens out.

Last Saturday my little brother turned 17. I don't know how this happened because last time I checked, he was 4 years old. In true Jesse form, the only thing he wanted for his birthday was to go to a rodeo. We went out to eat beforehand with some family friends of ours and then as we were about to go to the actual rodeo, Jesse's friend Lane said he wasn't feeling too good. So, the girls all decided that he needed an escort back home and we successfully avoided the 100+ degree weather for the evening.

Last night as I was getting ready for dinner I realized that my dad had eaten all of the leftovers in our house and that if I wanted anything to eat, I would have to make it all over again. It's times like these that I wish that I lived in College Station again and didn't have to drive 20 miles for a meal. That and I miss Old Navy. I'm really hoping that my next stage in life will be kind to me and put me in a town with more than one paved road. And I hope it's soon. Not that I'm wishing my life away, just this phase of it.

I hate that I don't have any pictures to post, but my camera hasn't made an appearance since Taylor's graduation week. That's right, not a single picture taken all of summer! Hopefully I'll remember to break it out when I see Taylor and Whitney in just two short weeks! I'm going to Alabama for Labor Day weekend and I can't wait! I haven't had a Taylor hug or a Whitney meal in way too long!
