...while I'm waiting for the Verizon guy to fix my phone.
I've always been glad when September ends. During school, it was because Halloween was coming and it was one month closer to school being out. But since I've been out of school, it's still always been nice when September is over and done. And I think I finally figured out why. When you're a kid, September symbolizes change. If you like school it's good change, if you don't (like me) it's bad change. But, it’s the change part (good or bad) that's important here. I think the feeling that come September something should change followed me even after I graduated. Now every September I get an edgy feeling, like I should be doing something different. It's worse now that I stay home with the kids, because it really feels like "summer vacation" should be over and I should be going back to school or something. It's kind of like wanderlust. You just feel like you need a change. But now that it's October and I can start focusing more on fall and Halloween coming up, the feeling is starting to fade again. I'm sure it will come back next year too, but for now I'm glad it's gone.
