No, not starting a business…not closing a business or minding my business….just I’m BUSY!
Moving, Disney, kids, summer, work, etc etc etc have kept me from stopping and trying to remember any of it…that makes me sad. However it makes me MADcrazyHAPPY that I have been too busy to notice. Lately the only thing I even WRITE is my prayer list (which seems to get longer by the day – sadly) so sitting down to type is unthinkable one some days!
Moving has definitely been the time suck of the year! Hmm, I guess technically “moving” itself wasn’t the time consuming activity….that was over in a day. Filling a house has been the thing….buying new things, repurposing old ones, shopping for bargains, creating new memories in a new space. It’s been EXHAUSTING…but most of all…it’s been FUN!!! It’s one of those things that makes it so apparent to me that crazy times bring out the MOST of what you have the most of. If you have love and fun and happiness, you will get more of THAT. My sweet husband has been so awesome throughout this transitional phase of having a new space to live in…..he’s dealt with my shopping habits, my chevron obsessions and my need to decorate every nook and cranny with some form of turquoise, aqua or gray! My kids have totally enjoyed finding their own new things and old things alike and have been such troopers about keeping things clean and organized. My Mom has been….an angel! She has loved shopping for me and crafting and lending a hand or elbow or whatever was needed. My niece helped unpack like a madwoman and it was a great time to have my entire family…inlaws, parents, niece and her boyfriend, sissy and her hubby and my baby niece….my kids…our friend Zoe…it was just awesome. I have had more visitors in a month than I believe I had at my former house in the seven years we lived there! It’s just fun getting opinions on decor and organization sometimes, right? ((OH AND THERE IS THAT POOL PROJECT THAT I HAVE NIGHTMARES ABOUT!!! SO MANY DECISIONS…….EEEEEK.)
Getting the kids ready for back to school…fun times. My kids will all be at the same school and I’m thrilled about that. MJ is starting K5 and I can’t even believe it. The speed at which time has flown is amazing. I’d like to say I’m dealing with my baby going to school very well but I’m not a liar. She’s so ready and I want to show her how excited I am for her and I do…and then I fall apart alone!! WHEW! It will be all fine and well next Friday after it’s been a day and we’ve had “that” day and she did fine and was happy and didn’t hold onto my leg for dear life. (Dear God, please don’t let that happen. Amen.) The boys are kinda “meh” about school starting back….but that’s to be expected at 12 and 15. Happy for them to get in there and get it going though!
Mike’s promotion + school = CRAZY! Many nights when we first moved in (he had finals then), I didn’t see him after dinner because I couldn’t stay up until he got in bed! Work has been busy for him as well….he hasn’t even played much golf lately!
TO BE CONTINUED…………I can’t even stay awake!!!
