Today is the Official Last Day of Summer Vacation

August 20th, 2013 at 02:22 pm

Well, it's the official "Last Day of Summer Vacation." F is thrilled - she can't wait for school to start.

Today she had her yearly checkup (luckily well-checks are covered entirely by our insurance), and then had a very fun playdate with the new girl in class. We were going to go to the pool but it's raining.

I am headed over to the library to pick up a book (this is one of the things I find the most amazing about the library: I ask for a book online, they send me an email saying it's in, and I go right to the front desk and pick it up - concierge service!). I will probably also grab a few magazines to take to the free magazine exchange - hope there will be something I want to take home from the magazines, too.

When we get home, we'll watch the Great British Bakeoff which started today. It's a show we all LOVE!

And dinner is very, very sweet salmon with rice and peas. I already set the timer on the rice cooker and the salmon is defrosted.

So a zero-cost day. And a nice, low-key way to spend the day before school begins.

    Thank you! I think so, too. It's nearly bathtime (while it's running I'll help her tidy her room) and then some reading. British Bakeoff was great! I hope some of you watch it, too!

    Students are moving into campus housing today, so it's our first day of school, too. Doesn't affect me too much, but it's always sad to see the summer ending.
