Say it isn’t so! Summer is at an end? Hey, I just got started, and now, pffffft, it’s over? A dose of reality taken, and yes, it is that time! For some of you, I know this is old news and that yours are already back in the classroom.
For others, it’s just a couple of weeks more, right after Labor Day, and then, maybe, some peace and quiet during the day at home. Then all the yelling and screaming to do their homework, get ready for after school activities, running carpool and so on . . . How do we do it!
I do hope each of you has enjoyed this summer. I know it has been tough financially for many if not most of us, but we Americans are a resourceful lot. I am sure you did what you could to find time to take off and enjoy the diversion from work and worries, at least a little bit.
I’ve put together a more concise list for you this year of finds and recommendations, all with value in mind. Plunge in, please, and thank you for your attention.
