I can't get over the fact that it's been a little over 2 weeks since I touched base here!
We've had various appointments taking up our days:
*a couple with the local high school where my younger daughter is now enrolled & so had to meet with the guidance counselor twice to go over class options & then actually schedule said classes
(let's not even go into my coming to terms with no longer homeschooling!!)
*a couple appointments with the orthodontist for the same 14 year old to get that ball rolling
(and another coming up to put the actual braces on later this week!)
*one dental appointment for the customary teeth cleaning but also for pulling two teeth for the same 14 year old daughter in preparation for those braces
*a general physical for THE SAME DAUGHTER to get her into public high school sports
*an appointment with our wonderful homeschool evaluator to finish up the 14 year old's 8th grade school year
*and a random eye appointment for myself
(to get bifocal contact lenses--shhh I'm still in denial about this)
Along the way I've also gotten a decent handful of quilts done for Stitch & Craft. Here's one of the latest: (sorry the pics aren't the greatest)
I spent a couple days reorganizing my sewing room & it's closet
(the bad side)
(the good side--though now both sides are good)
Went hiking with the family on Father's Day
(Maegan, me & Morgan)
Me & Marshall
I swim Smokey most days after we've walked.
And Morgan & I went to a used book sale, grabbing 40 books & 20 magazines for $5!!
(Yes, we are book hoarders)
We're having fun & getting lots done, but I'm really looking forward to some SUMMER VACATION days!! You know the kind where I wake up when I darn well feel like it & the dogs' bladders won't explode, I veg on the computer or whatever I want for however long I want, float aimlessly in the pool for as long as it takes for me to get bored, have a completely ready dinner miraculously appear in my kitchen, someone snaps their fingers to clean up like Bewitched, and then I go up to read leisurely before bed while someone else puts both dogs out separately & also goes out to find the cat & bring him in...
Oh dang, I slipped into dream-mode again....
