Life out of control

Last week was totally out of control at our house.  We were double or triple booked a few days with activities.  There wasn't a day something wasn't on the schedule.  For example, yesterday all four of us were literally in different places.  I had one kid on a scout campout, another kid marching in a parade with the marching band, I was at church doing a thing with the band, and Ellen was getting her hair done.  Even today we have stuff going on.  Next week is just as bad.  When did our lives get this out of hand?

Luckily, things MIGHT slow down by the end of June.  Then again, maybe not.  My summer semester started this week but I don't think it will be TOO crazy.  Taking only one course is a welcome change.  The only stressful thing will be that the papers we'll need to write have to be done in a week.  But they're only 3 to 4 pages.  Then summer off and finish up in the fall.

We've been wanting to get out of the house and do fun stuff like riding, hiking, or just plain being outside.  But we've gotten like 3 sunny days in the last 2 weeks.  And it's going to rain all this week as well.  Makes it kind of hard to enjoy the outdoors.  Anyway, the weather is bound to get better, right?  Let's hope so.

I don't know people with kids whose lives aren't a bit crazy. When your boys have grown and left home you and Ellen won't know what to do with yourselves! LOL

Sorry to hear your weather isn't good for bike rides, I hope that changes soon for you! Meanwhile, maybe you could do something indoors like.... bowling? That can be a blast!

Jude: I'm sure I'll be able to keep myself busy when the kids are gone, don't you worry.

We've been cooped up all winter and need some outdoor activities so this rain isn't helping our moods.

Things will settle down soon. Remember, one day at a time. :) My motto these days.

Also, yes, the weather will get better. Now that I'm back to swimming, the weather out here has been cold, overcast and chilly. I definitely don't want to get chilled, so have to stay out of the pool unless the sun's out. *grumble* Where's that 90° weather now?

Jammie: I think I'll get a moment to breath in July when both kids are at scout camp. Something to look forward to at least.

We have more rain forcast for this week. It's turning into a record year. Hope you get some good swimming weather soon!

Hope things have settled down, our lives get so crazy and busy before we even notice, or at least that what it seems like to me. I really hope you take some time to do things that you really enjoy, it's important to take care of yourself!
