Topic: Things to Do
Yes, folks - I've been extremely busy the last several weeks! It seems that as soon as we got back from vacation, we've gone from 0-100 in a peco second! One weekend was our grandson's 2nd birthday party at our house. The following weekend was the wedding of a good friend's daughter. In between that, my husband spent 3 weekends in 100+ degree weather working on his vehicle (wiring issues). There was the 2 1/2 day orientation I attended with College Daughter. Second Grader (formerly First Grader) Grandson had to get new school (& regular) clothes, shoes, supplies, and of course the annual picking out of a new superhero backpack (ok, he now has 3 Superman backpacks - anyone see a pattern?). And a superhero lunch box and thermos (he went with the "Hulk" on that!). Then we came to the discovery that College was starting really soon and College Daughter needed something to drive! So instead of waiting for a good time (there aren't any good times) - daughter and I drove around our town looking at cars.
NOTE TO CAR SALES PERSONS: WHEN YOU START DICKERING WITH ME REALLY BADLY I KNOW SOMETHING IS WRONG WITH THE CAR!
So we went to Carmax (ok, this is a shameless plug for them!) - and they treated us VERY WELL. Now College Daughter has a nice pre-owned Hyundai that she's driving back and forth.
Second Grader Grandson is doing well at the brand new school building that was finished justintime for school to start. His 2nd grade teacher was my son's teacher way back when! And I think she's one of the greatest teachers there! Way to go, Ms. G! And of course since school has started that means PTA has started! Yes, I've already done PTA stuff - selling T-shirts during Meet the Teacher night the 2nd night of school and help sell school supply boxes the fisrt day of school. Next week is the board meeting and orientations that I need to help out at. We are never without something to do!
Work picked up quickly with mailing out almost 1000 brochures and putting out the monthly newsletter all on the same day this past week. I messed up on the timing of that! And I don't think I'm caught up yet!
And if you think that wasn't enough try this - back in the swing of mid-week Bible study (and somehow I volunteered to lead this session). Someone remind me how to say no! Some of us ladies got together mid-week to have lunch together.
I have managed to get a few things done around the house somehow. This next week my big project is going through Second Grader Grandson's dresser to weed out all the too small clothes & get all that organized.
Oh, yeah & we're now working around not only our schedule, College Daughter's schedule and Second Grader Grandson's schedule, but our Son's work schedule!
No wonder I've had an eye twitch that's lasted a couple weeks. If you see me in a corner drooling and twitching, you know I've gone too far over the edge!
