It’s Over, Hooray!


It’s Over, Hooray!

I’m talking about the first week of school. A week that I’ve whined about and wrung my hands over and generally dreaded like the plague only perhaps a little less than the actual plague has in fact, come and gone.

I’m glad it’s over.

All of the worrying over my square pegs came to nothing. I always forget that, as with many square pegs, that they are sort of endearing little folks and that they are in really great schools with some of the nicest people on this earth. Truly.

This won’t keep me from coming up with a First Day of School Cocktail. I told my friend, Denise, that someone should come up with one. She agreed with me that, yes, the need is there.

Maybe we should have a naming contest for this new drink. I vote that we call it A+. Now all I have to do is come up with the concoction. Of course, I have a while…thank goodness the first week of school comes but once a year.

Hope that y’all are having a good weekend.


  1. Annie, I am totally on board with this! I have two suggestions. I think the cocktail needs to be 1) low maintenance (no serious juicing or making multiple syrups) and 2) inexpensive to make (no random specialty liqueurs that none of us have on hand) because back to school is so dang stressful and expensive- just my 2 cents. I am guessing we’re on the same page with this. I think we both recognize the need to be able mix quickly to consume at a moment’s notice! I can’t wait to hear what you come up with! Don’t forget!

    I am so glad school went fairly smoothly this week. I wish I could hear it from your boys first hand. I am sure they are full of stories already! We miss y’all!

  2. Abby, I’m with you, the cocktail should be easy, inexpensive and not too finicky to make. I’m thinking that it should also contain caffeine and be a little bit but not too sweet. Hmmmmm, we shall see. 🙂
