Friday Favorites

Apparently I was a bit to obvious with my excitement for school to start again.

I think it was starting to hurt my kids feelings.

They felt like I didn’t enjoy being around them.

Couldn’t wait to be rid of them.

And so, I felt bad.

It’s not that I don’t love spending time with them.

It’s just that it seemed that I spent all day, every day,  standing in the kitchen, making meals, serving friends, cleaning up, doing dishes, supervising kids doing their “own” baking, doing more dishes…

It was enjoyable, it was quality time spent together, but it needed to come to an end.

And now school is in full swing and the house is quiet and I’m excited to clean and organize and paint and, and, and… whatever the hell I want to do.

So.. sorry, but not sorry.

Does anyone else find it hard to enjoy summer?

I’m trying so hard, but I find it hard to relax.

Nothing constructive gets done… I’m still just running kids around, preparing meals, blowing up pool animals… but work and unfinished projects are nagging at the back of my mind…

Only 38 more days until school starts (not like I’m counting or anything).

So for now I’ll just keep pouring the margaritas… Cheers!

Friday favorites…. except it’s Tuesday

Sigh…. I guess that’s just the way summer rolls.

I thought this was the summer I’d finally crack down and get a bunch of projects completed.

But I find myself spending most of my time running kids around.

And preparing food.  My God, they’re always hungry!!

I’m trying to roll with it and just enjoy our time together.

But meanwhile, the to do lists keep adding up…

And we made it!

School break!!

Ahh….. the lazy days of summer.

 I’d forgotten, how demanding the littles are when they are home all day.

“Mom! I need help!”

“Mom, come see this!”

“Mom, I’m hungry!”

I had such great aspirations of painting all summer

and finally finishing all the projects left hanging around,

but so far, I’ve accomplished absolutely nothing.

Oh well… hopefully next week will be more productive.

For now, there’s a sunny deck and a cold drink calling my name.

Good grief…

Only 4 days left of school before summer break…

Only 4 days left of peace and quiet…

4 days until the arguing and complaining and “I’m so bored” begin…

Oh well, on a positive note, only 4 more days of making school

lunches, and that’s truly something to celebrate.

Cheers!

My how the weeks are flying by.

Only 9 more days of school until summer break and I’m trying to cram as much into my days as I possibly can before all the kids are home for summer.

Oh how I will miss the silence…

On the other hand, no more school lunches for 2 whole months.

And if that isn’t a reason to celebrate, I don’t know what is 🙂

Finally…

the sun is shining,

the tulips are blooming,

the trees are in flower,

and the first shoots of perennials are pushing up out of the ground.

Finally…  take a deep breath and relax again…

Apparently the first day of spring has arrived.

We’ve yet to see much evidence of that in our neck of the woods.

Still cold, still overcast, still gloomy…

But there’s hope on the horizon, the forecast is calling for some slightly warmer days.

Oh… just to see the sun….

Crazy busy dance week here this past week.  Costume fittings, hair, makeup, pictures… trying to get back into the swing of things.

Gearing up for a super busy April.

At least I have my instagram, and my dreams…
