In just a few short weeks school will be starting all over the nation and that means it's time to get ready for the school schedule: Regular bedtimes, more laundry, lunches and snacks, and everything else.
So take the time this week to get your appliances ready: Clean that refrigerator and freezer so you have plenty of room for the lunches and snacks. Check to see that your dryer vents are clean and ready to go. Get a service tech scheduled for preventive mainentence for all your appliances. With school starting will come cooler weather (I sure hope!), so have your furnace gone over.
Start some meal planning that you can fit in around all your extra-curricular activities - it is really nice to have something brewing in the crockpot when you're short on time between getting home from work and chauffering the kids to their activities.
And don't forget to watch out for the tykes on the streets walking to school or waiting for the bus. Please observe school bus etiquette and traffic laws. We want to keep everyone safe!
Enjoy your last few weeks of summer and have a great school year!
