It's that time of year again. The kids are back-to-school, as evidenced by the throngs in Crocs and oversized backpacks walking past your house every morning at 8-ish. As adults ? and whether or not we have school-aged kids - a lot of us still follow a sort of internal school year clock.
In September, business meetings pile up, household schedules fill beyond reason, and, the days seem to get shorter very quickly. But, there may be something rejuvenating about this season as well?
Fresh start and big plans|It's almost like New Year's
Frantic and overwhelming days|Struggling to get back into the overlapping schedules of life and business
Both a little dread and a little excitement|A lot like when you used to go to school
Hardly notice the back-to-school transition at all|You've planned your life to be more consistent
