oh! for the life of a snail
Yeah!! VBS photos and videos, done! Photos from 65th wedding anniversary, done!! The girls have swimming every day for another five days and then our commitments dwindle to a minimum (until all the people who've talked to me about photos commit and schedule them - I would be fine if they didn't but Tim has this funny idea I should take the photo jobs. ;) ).
Today the girls went to Terrific Tuesdays so I had most of the day to myself. I intended to do nothing but create but that didn't happen. I ran errands, went to Goodwill to look for some big glass containers for caterpillars and maybe a cricket or two (in addition to finding said glassware, I scored some cool Pierrot wallpaper and some old business column paper that I plan to convert into stationery among other things). Then I mowed the front and back yard and hauled all our green yard waste to the compost facility.
We are going to start school again in August (we were done by the beginning of May so I want to ease in early). I also need to get some organizing and decluttering done. It has been on the list of things I want to get done but now it has become imperative since my MIL is coming to stay for ten days in September.
I am ready for some breathing space and I am pretty sure that it is just around the corner.
