School will be back in session soon, so parents are starting the rituals of shopping, planning, and all that other 'fun' stuff. What does that mean for me? It means having the neighborhood pool all to myself for the last 3 hours today and 4 hours yesterday! The peace and quiet (well except for the geese that are next door at the lake) is simply wonderful.

On the flip side, for some of us in O.M.Y. mode, the A.M. commuting traffic will increase noticeably when schools start. (Why it does so noticeably is hard to untangle; must be close to the tipping point at my preferred drive time, and this sends it over what I consider the edge?)
Oh well, can always get up a few minutes earlier--especially for just one more year.
