Last Day of Summer

This poem, titled "When I Am Old" (the basis for the Red Hat Clubs), tells how a woman, now that she is old, is going to do what she is going to do no matter what anyone thinks.

Well, I have no intentions of being in a red hat club, and though I'm definitely headed in the "older" direction, this isn't about that.  But this afternoon fits in the category of "no matter what anyone thinks."

It's the last day before I have to go back to school.  I spent the morning grocery shopping, getting a few items of clothing and school supplies, going to the gym, doing laundry, and in general finishing up a lot of odds and ends.

So, this afternoon, I will sit in my lazy-boy, reading the paper and my book in progress, playing on the computer, crocheting, watching "Chopped" and the Olympics, eating something I shouldn't be eating, and forgetting about the time.

Happy last day of vacation.
