There seems to be a, "back to school, "frenzy in the air. So much to do, and so little time. Everyone's packing it in before buckling down to the academic school year. Yoga early this morning, work, work, and more work. I also have some last minute issues to take care of my daughter before she returns to college this weekend. What are you all up to?

I've never tried pine but do love apples and cinnamons. I'll have to try a pine. :-)

I love fall scents, too.  I love cinnamon and the smell of fall.  I love fall weather, too.

I love "fall" scents like pine, apple cinnamon, etc.  Although it probably won't feel like fall here until November.  

I got an appointment to get the shot this morning.  What I have is called an IgE deficiency.  I was reading up on it yesterday and it actually fits quite well with a lot of things I've been experiencing.  Started a script of Cipro last night so I'm hoping that this will kick everything into high gear.

What a difference a day makes! I feel alive again.

Gym, I hope you get your sinus issues solved. Yesterday it felt like someone stabbed my in my face so I can't imagine living like that for extended periods.

The back to school frenzy is now behind us. We are in week 2 and going strong. Those days leading up to school can get so frustrating so good luck to those of you just entering.

I am going to the gym later to get some weight lifting in. Then I'm probably going to run to my daughter's to babysit for a few so her husband can take her out to dinner for her b-day.

I am thinking it is almost time to go to some fall candle scents. Anyone have special favorites?

Yup.  Never met him before.  This is his first trip to the US and he's going to Burning Man.  I think that's pretty cool.  :)

Is Brazilian campmate new? Does he come all the way from Brazil for BM?  Dedication!

Good luck with the frenzy!  We're getting geared up for school, too. How is your daughter feeling about school? Does she had strategies to deal w/ all the stuff that gave her a hard time last year?  My daughter wants to move into my son's room (he has a nice walk in closet, and another smaller linen type closet and a much nicer room).  I'm getting so sad about his leaving! 

I went for a short run this morning w/ a friend and then joined others for some coffee. What a great way to begin the day!

I want to go on a "vacaron"!  Laughing  Gotta love voice to text.  

I'm going to try to get into the allergist's office today to get that shot.  Our Brazilian campmate also arrives today.  He had a layover in Atlanta, went through customs there and everybody on his flight missed their connections on account of having to go through customs.  So, I'm waiting to hear on an arrival time for him so we can go get him.  We're hanging out with him today and then having dinner with the Phoenix camp members tonight.  

No exercise for me today.  I probably won't before I leave.  Energy has been too precious.  Undecided
