I am almost at the end of new school year madness, I hope. My day job is in HR at an education agency, so I am intensely busy from August 1 through September. Of course, I joined three or four swaps that began mid-August and early September. Now, my reasoning is that they run into October and November, so I really can participate but I'm off to a rotten start. Please, dear partners, if for some reason you figure out that I am your secret partner, know that I am constantly thinking of ways to spoil you as soon as I can take a breath!!
