Ketchup With Us #24

A new school year is fast approaching.  In fact, Michele's kids have already begun. (She can help you prepare with her Back-To-School ABC's.) My kids begin next week. In fact, Mags is getting on the bus for the FIRST TIME. I actually wrote a story to help me handle this situatioin for the podcast I co-produce with my husband. It's called 'Bus Stop Bravery' and was a little bit of therapy writing for me. 

This year, there's another big first in our family. I'm heading back to work full-time after eight years of being at home with the kids and balancing multiple part-time jobs. Tomorrow is my first day. And, if I'm being perfectly honest, 
I'm feeling a little bit like this...

My first day of Kindergarten. September of 1982.

In 57 words or less, tell us about a significant first day in your life … of school, work, parenthood, rehab, veganism, prison, whatever you want.


  1. Congrats and good luck on the new job! I hope the transition goes as smoothly as possible. And that you don't forget about us faithful readers. ;) I know it's going to feel like a whirlwind. Go Mel!
