Well, tonight is officially the last night of summer. No, not by the Gregorian calendar, but by the academic one. Back to schedules and winter coats (or pestering the girls to actually wear one.) Homework reminders and hot-lunch vs. cold-lunch arguments. And one last surgery for me, on Sept. 10, that I couldn't take care of earlier because of all the other medical hoopla I was going through. Then, then, will life get back to "normal?" Or, as I'm quickly discovering, does the truth lie in the expression "the only constant is change?"
