Squid Awake

I've got back to school jitters tonight. Interesting since I returned to work on Monday but the teachers come back tomorrow so that is probably the source of my insomnia.

There is an addendum to yesterday's post -- the 2:30 a.m. mass at St. Andrew's Church (RC) was called the Printer's Mass because it was held after the newspapers finished printing for the night. The printers were then able to attend mass before heading home from work. St. Andrew's also held a noon mass (I do not know if this is common now but apparently it wasn't back then). The noon mass was to accommodate the working people on their lunch break and was apparently very popular.

One last note before I try to knit myself into a state where I can sleep -- the contest closes at the end of the day on Friday, August 31. Get your entries in while you can! Yes, this does leave you guessing as to what we will do on the upcoming long weekend. Deal with it.

Papa Squid, Squidette and one of the many Uncle Squid. Notice how grown up Squidette has become. Sniff.

{hugs} i have start-of-school jitters too. I "won" a locker lottery so now I'm totally feeling high school worries. ;)

It'll be fine! Just think, knitting club should start again soon (right?) and that's fun (right?)

I hope everything went well for you and you're not too jittery after that first day. Just think: three long days this weekend of lots of good riding -- the forecast sounds promising!

I'm hoping everything is just fine at the beginning of this school year..and that it gets even better!
