School started last week. For all of us! Since I'm starting a new job, I'm training everyday for about four hours online. It's hectic at our house! I told my husband that I feel like I'm in a big building with no windows and all the hallways and doors look the same. I can't find my way around or back where I started again. That's what I feel like training in the computer school! I'm sure it will get better, everyday I'm beginning to remember more and more but it sure is difficult at first learning a new system!
My kids are fareing better than I am in their prospective schools. Both seem to enjoy what they are doing and are learning the ropes of getting around much better than old mom. This week, we have open house for our daughter's school and next week, a phone call conference with my son's teacher. We seem to be settling into a routine pretty quickly. I'm ready to get there!
Yesterday, a cold front moved through Oklahoma bringing us some much needed relief from the hundred degree days! This morning when I stepped outside, it was pretty chilly! Today will only be about eighty-five so some people will be wearing sweaters! My daughter actually did. She says it's because the school is pretty cold in some rooms but I think she just was wanting to wear some new fall clothes....
I'm resorting to easy options for dinners these next two weeks. Quick things that I can make ahead in the afternoon and get out fast before we rush off to whatever event is on my kids calendar. Tonight, it's asian chicken salad. I've made it before and posted the recipe. The grilled chicken is in the fridge thawing and I can just throw it all together and serve it in big bowls so clean-up is also a breeze. Which is a good thing because my kids have youth group at six tonight about the same time my husband gets home from work. Afterwards, they have a swim party until nine.
Next week, starts dance for the daughter and Oklahoma State football games for all of us! Bring on fall! I'm ready, I'm ready, I'm ready!
