I am counting down the days until school starts for my girls . . . .less than 24 hours! Woo Hoo! Then I have four days of peace and quiet until I start back to work for the year. I substitute teach at my youngest daughter's elementary school. So do you have a count down going on in your household?

Yes, there is a countdown happening in our home today. We are waiting for our first baby to come out. We are expecting her by the end of Oct. or early Nov. We are so excited and nervous (for me) as well. I hope everything works out well- safe delivery and healthy baby girl.

Salaries and vacations are what we mostly do countdowns on here. :P Congratulations on the peace and quiet!

It's a little over two months to National Novel Writing Month, so I'm not counting the days yet, but I will be very soon. This will be the fifth year, I'm doing NaNoWriMo, and since I actually won last year for the first time (wrote at least 50,000 words of an original novel in thirty days), I'm more excited than usual. I've been working out the plot and characters for my new novel, so when November 1 rolls around, I'll be ready to go.
