Thanks for all the birthday wishes – it was a fantastic day! It included lunch out with Fatty, a trip to the garden store to pick up veggies, a home cooked dinner and margaritas finished off with chocolate cake and a little impromptu party. Very very fun! The weekend continued to be great – some gardening, a barbecue at my brother's, a cobbler and homemade ice cream, the pool, a soccer game and plenty of napping rounded it out.
School is winding down – the girls have about a week left. They came home without homework which was so nice. For the first time ever, I am excited that school is over. I am ready for some down time, for no homework and a later bedtime. I have never felt this way before. I have always dreaded the end of the school year. I know – it sounds awful, but it's the truth. Summer is always a big push and pull with the three of us. We have to balance three sets of have to's and want to's. I don't know that this summer will be much different, but if having a better attitude will guarantee some measure of success, then sign me up.
I've been sewing, but really have nothing to show for it. I made a skirt that is waaaaay too big and am working on my craft swap project. Hopefully, I will be able to show and tell soon. I brought my sewing machine down to the family room so I can hang out in the relative cool-ness of the downstairs. I absolutely refuse to turn the air conditioning on until June 1 and hanging out in the little closet on the third floor is not so fun. Of course, I may change my tune once the temp hits the high 80's. We'll see. The bonus is TV while I sew. Anything you care to recommend for our Netflix queue?
All right, enough of this rambling. See you soon.
