Checking in – and back out…

Yes, I know – it’s been a few days. Chalk that up to a (finally) relaxing weekend after two busy weeks, and I just needed a break from the computer too. It actually was a very nice weekend – the girls spent quite a bit of time on Saturday in the pool next door again, […]

I haven’t forgotten…

Nope, haven’t forgotten about this site at all. Or about knitting. It’s just been crazy busy for the past couple of weeks since the girls got out of school. I’ve kept them (and thus myself) completely scheduled up with activities, and am finding myself therefore way behind in just about everything. Including blogging. And knitting. […]

I’m so glad that she’s not like me

From as far back as I can remember, I have been shy. Very shy – even painfully so at times. Over the years I’ve gotten better at talking to people one-on-one and even somewhat in group settings, but it still isn’t exactly comfortable usually. And I avoid being the center of attention as much as […]

Our Cheerleading Bible School Hair-Cutting Softball Playing week

In a nutshell, that’s been about what our last week has been like. Everything all crammed up into one big pile of keeping kids busy. But it’s working… On the rare occasions when we’ve all been home together, the girls go maybe 5 minutes before somebody’s at someone else’s throat (so to speak). It’s at […]

Next time I’ll know better than to take her with me!

Well, this week has been busy. And busy. And a little busy too. And after finally getting the girls in bed way later than their normal bedtime every night, I’ve been hardly able to think straight, much less write anything coherent. Even now, I can hardly keep my eyes open, so will be heading down […]

Woo Hoo! A success story

Let me just start by saying that mathematics and visualizing how something is going to turn out in the real world isn’t my strong suit. I also tend to be a ‘try it until it works’ kind of a person. Having said that, I am so proud of myself for actually being able to modify […]

Wordless Wednesday #149 – Oddly enough, this IS what they wanted to do on the first day of summer vacation!

Tackling… Busy days – and Abby

I’m posting Tackle It Tuesday here again this week, mainly because part of the tackle is something that I haven’t talked about at all over on my other site and am not really comfortable writing about over there. It’s not at all housework related this week either. More about that in a minute. The first […]

Not so much ‘vacation’ in our summer

At least not yet. For some reason just about every activity that I signed the girls up for this year was only offered during one week – THIS week. And of course there is no busing for things like recreation classes and vacation bible school… Or softball games.  :)  So I’m finding myself actually running […]
