How joyous is September!? June, July and August see me sitting in my cubicle, attempting to be creative and magically summon content for multiple youth and adult trainings. This summer, the ideas came to me before July 1st and a majority of my work assignments were completed in record time.

I wasn't quite ready for the onslaught of busy that was to come. My schedule this year is nothing out of the ordinary but after sitting at my desk for 3 straight months, being out and about for 3-4 hours at a time feels strange. Plus, it is still 90 degrees here in NorCal and I'm ready to break out my pants and sweaters.

The good news is that the student trainings will be done on October 4 and then the massive piles of papers, notes and posters spilling off of my desk will be gone and I can get into a routine of driving to my 10 assigned schools a week. I did some calculations and discovered that I will be driving 800 billable miles in October-not counting my 70 mile round trip commute and well, my poor car is going to be getting a work out!

Working on a school calendar has upsides and downsides. The positive side includes the word HOLIDAY and the negative side includes the words 10 SCHOOLS A WEEK. That's a lot of students, a lot of potential germs and a lot of paperwork to keep up on as I try to stay organized this year. This is the year!!!!!

Anyone else have "busy season" at work? Is it Thanksgiving Break yet? How about Veteran's Day? Can I get a Saturday in my future?
