Here we are, the last weekend of Summer. I have to do a 17 mile run, a fantasy football draft, some last minute school shopping, and our neighbor is having a neighborhood party. We’ll be throwing back a few cold ones, grilling some food, and putting together the 200 foot slip-n-slide down the hill of the park that extends from our backyards. It’ll be a busy but fun weekend, and except for the school shopping part. relatively tame on the checkbook. Then, next week it’s back to school for the kids, and back to her job at the school district for my wife. Order and routine will return to the Pizel household. While I’m sad to see summer wind down, I’m very excited for order and routine.
