Happy Labor Day Weekend.
I'm usually happy to see Labor Day come. It's a kick-off of sorts for my favorite season -- autumn. But this year, I'm a little sad to see the summer come to an end. It seemed so short, probably because most of it was spent recovering from surgery, but probably also because it is the last summer before my oldest son starts college. I find myself back-peddling a lot in regard to this issue, and I will honestly admit I am in denial about the whole thing.
Anyway, we will celebrate the official end of summer, with friends on Saturday night, and family on Sunday night. I think on Monday we'll try to just relax (after all -- it is Labor Day and we're supposed to rest).
Saturday -- 1st Ohio State game
The boys will be tailgating for lunch; maybe Peach and I will grab a bite at Panera.
