Well, really two last gasps: First, this week is the last week I’ll have daily local bus service unless I want to take the commuter runs into the city, which I mostly do not want to do. The next closest bus is about a 25 minute walk for me, most of it without sidewalks, which makes it unappealing during snowy, icy, sub-freezing weather. And unappealing is a nice word for how I really feel, which is probably more accurately described using words that don’t belong on this pretty website.
And another last gasp… the end of August Break. I will miss it more than a little. I’m excited to start writing again on Monday, but the freedom of blogging without too many words has been exactly what I needed during this very difficult month.
