How is Summer Almost Over Already?

Is anyone else traumatized by the burgeoning Back-To-School section in Target? My kids’ school doesn’t begin until September 1st (I think), so the mere existence of those markers and backpacks and glue sticks is a real summer buzzkill for me.

I guess I could look at it positively and be grateful that we have a little more summer left, that there’s still the whole month of August where we can still go to a park after dinner, where my kids can sleep in (when they deign to, obviously), where we have less pressure and more leisure.

It’s been a good summer. The time has really passed very quickly, and the days have been jam-packed, which is likely contributing to the quick passage of time. Though, perhaps, it’s also because of aging. My husband and I were reflecting the other day on how much more quickly time seems to pass. How are we already in our mid-thirties? That’s weird. I anticipate that it will only get weirder. Hahaha.

Often, when my schedule is busy, I am able to crank out more pieces. That has been the case recently. I had a piece up on Kveller last week about how I motivate my kids to observe some of the less glamorous aspects of Judaism. And today I have my bi-monthly piece up on Hevria where musings about my backyard garden turn inward.

Enjoy the pieces and enjoy the summer!

  1. It does get weirder. At some point, weird becomes the new normal, and it’s not a problem any longer. Almost. Sometimes.

  2. Much nicer! Mazal tov on the new layout!
    Just one thing, can you set a limit on the number of posts per page, so that it doesn’t add posts every time I scroll down?

tell me about it!
