Random #22

I still don't have my computer back.  I'm sad.  I can use my Hubby's, but not as often or when I would like.  Let's see what I can get done today.
 
I've started work on my query letter for my non-fiction.
 
I read Animal Farm recently and it was great.
 
Also, why will my son eat carrots and cucumbers, but not the hot dog?  Even when he asked for a hot dog?!
 
I guess I'm feeling more random than usual today.

My computer is currently out of service. I'm using my Hubby's now.  But since he uses his own computer frequently for work, I don't plan on getting a ton of time on it.  So, I'm feeling a little disconnected. I can't blog as much as I'd like.  I have edits to my non-fiction that I did by hand that I'd like to put into the computer file.  Also, I just like having my own computer and not having to ask my Hubby if he's using his.  It'll only be for a while longer, until it's fixed.  
 
Also, I read a couple great Emily Dickinson poems today.

The beginning of September is so busy!  My daughter is back to school.  Getting back into the routine of making lunches and getting up early is so tiring.... for all of us.  No more getting up whenever for the kids, I have to wake them.  That is not always fun.  This last week and half has been so draining, I have no energy to do anything lately.
 
I also miss having my daughter home with me (I'm still unemployed.)  It was a fun two months with the kids.  We did lots of activities, visited friends and family.  It was such a different lifestyle than having her in school and me at work.  While I miss her, I'm happy she's back to school.  Now, I only have to entertain one child.  Plus, she enjoys school.  I know in five or ten years, that will likely change.
 
Does anyone else find September tiring?
