Happy Labor Day weekend, everyone! We made it, we survived the summer. Ordinarily, I’d be mourning the end of the season, but this summer was an exhausting one and I’m excited to get back into a routine that allows me to shift some focus back to DW and the self-care I’ve been neglecting. We had some parenting challenges that required scheduling adjustments and lots of time and energy and attention, but I’m hopeful the start of a new school year (first day of kindergarten is Thursday!) and its related structure will bring some much-needed relief in that regard. If nothing else, it will at least free up some hours in the week and that in itself will be a relief.
Anyway, we have one last big summer hoorah this weekend. Do you have any plans? We’re staying local, hanging with friends and enjoying what I hope will be a quiet, low-key few days in Brooklyn. I always like the weekends when most everyone flees town and those of us who remain get the sidewalks and parks and ice cream shops to ourselves — a luxury, for sure, in a city like New York. What are you up to and what’s been the highlight of your summer?
