Obviously, we are spending our last week of summer trying to keep a stitched toe from getting infected.  Yesterday was a more promising day in the life of The Toe, with less throbbing and a higher threshold of pain from its owner.  We might survive this yet. In addition to The Toe (yes, it’s becoming it’s own entity), Teacher Days began for me yesterday.  So, we are also spending this last week hustling and bustling to and from school gathering supplies, scheduling practices, and perhaps catching up on all the laundry in the house–hopefully.

The Dog Days are coming to an end very quickly, and we are sprinting into a New School Year.  We better get in shape.

Bought those supplies yet?  Brace yourself.
