This morning I had my annual (mmm…well…bi-decade) physical. Since I am over 40, I had a visit from Dr. Jellyfinger. My doctor and I are friends, so I sang “Getting to know you” during the deed. Considering the awful things I have had to do to Ethan over the years. I decided 30 seconds of being uncomfortable was in order.
Speaking of Ethan, today at 1, they are posting the new class rosters at Mill Run Elementary. We are hoping for a much more sympathetic teacher this year. Shall we say that last year’s teacher found all of the limitations “irritating.” I hope she gets rectal cancer…did I really say that? Tomorrow we have to teach two school nurses how to cath. Luckily Ethan caths himself most of the time. Hopefully it will not be too much of a circus sideshow.
Later today we are going off to buy school supplies. I always loved buying school supplies when I was a kid. A former pastor of mine said this and I think it is very true. September is the REAL New Year, not January. September is about renewing old friendships and making new ones. It is about starting out fresh with a clean slate. A whole new world of opportunities is open.
I wish as adults the slate was occasionally wiped clean. Much of adulthood involves carrying a lot of baggage. More about that soon.
