Pretty sad but also par for the course in the summer. It's actually crazier around here in summer than during the school year, since the kids are around for all or most of the days and going in every direction at once. Add to that the bathroom renovation that we just completed (construction guys arriving at 8AM every day!) and it's a good thing I don't drink much, that's all I'll say.
I still have to paint the bathroom, so I'll post pics when I'm done. Hopefully soon! There's still a Dumpster in my driveway...the plan is to get rid of an old sofa plus all kinds of junk that has accumulated in the basement and sheds. Oh, and we have yet another soccer tournament this weekend, so who knows when all of this stuff is going to get done! Never a dull moment around here, that's for sure. I turned 43 on Monday the 18th and we had so much going on that week that we weren't able to celebrate the occasion until the 23rd! (Not that I'm all that excited about birthdays these days, but my husband insists.)
On the bright side, I got to spend the day with my college roommate and another college friend on Sunday, which was great. The roommate actually lives in Germany now, but she had an extended layover while flying home and the other girl and I (we only live an hour apart, we need to get together more often) were able to meet up and then go see her. Good times. Nothing like old friends...even when you can only see them infrequently, it doesn't matter since some bonds distance and years just don't break.
Oh, and last but definitely not least, happy 71st birthday to my beautiful mother!
