Until Next Time we Meet.......

Two weeks went by too quickly. Actually the whole summer has flown by more quickly than I would like to admit. Today I settled into the old routine of school, homework, exercise, and afternoon naps. However I have made a few changes in the schedule. This coming from a girl who never believed in "set times" for things to happen. I have become a routine junkie. How did that happen? I'm guessing three kids and a household to run has a little to do with it. I have added a few new goals to my list of things to do. The first, more rest. Second, work harder on my goals & dreams. Third, get healthy. There are others but I won't bore you with the details.

It's a good thing I have these new goals to keep me busy. It's awful lonesome around here. My mom and sister flew home yesterday. To say I had a good time would be an understatement. I seriously had a blast. Although serious lack of sleep provided a few grumpy moments on my part (sorry mom) I wish they could have stayed another week. It was fun to get together with my aunt & uncle and all of their kids too. My brother and his girlfriend came over for two days which added to all the fun. I absolutely adore his girlfriend. She was one of the sweetest people I have ever met. Just darling. I do so miss them all and look forward to seeing everyone very soon.

I will be posting pictures from the past two weeks tomorrow, along with a shop update. Really excited to finally put more in my shop. Oh yeah, another goal, to have 30 items in my shop by Christmas. Do you think I can accomplish this goal? Any of these goals? Only time will tell. I'm ready and oh so willing to move forward. That's what really matters right? Right :)

I am glad that your 1ST goal is more sleep...because you already work harder than the average Jane, pulling 2 AMer's to accomplish your goals. I always wonder, "how does she do it?" (I would die!)
Then again, I am glad that you are getting healthy, whatever that means to you. I read a really good book a few weeks ago by Dr. OZ, called "YOU: Staying Young". Great find for getting healthy~got it from the library.
AWESOME to enjoy your family. I need to learn a few things from you about routines. :)

Happy Day!

Great plan Summer - I'm working on all the same things actually! And yes being a mom make you crave routine - the kids need it too :)

Yes! You CAN do it!!!

I've added the whole "get healthy" to my list as well! It's amazing how long it's taken my body "lbs" wise to get to where it was before having Eric! I think it's great you are setting these goals for yourself!!!

Glad you had a great time with your family!!! Looking forward to see the pictures!!! Love the one you have up on this post!

Miss you!

It sounds like you had a truly wonderful time with your family. Great memories to hold onto. Summer has gone by much too quickly.

I have been trying to work out our new schedule for homeschooling plus all the extras.
