As I went through the newspaper over breakfast on Sunday, pulling out the coupon and ad sections to look at, I saw the circulars for the big box stores advertising back to school supplies, backpacks and school clothes. I snapped out of my sleepy, carefree morning bliss. Is it back to school time already?
