Whew! I’ve missed this place! I can’t believe it has been more than a month since I’ve written here. Worse, other than cursory emails, I really haven’t written for the last month. UGH!! I’m feeling constipated with words.
This time of year is always crazy. Since my last entry, we’ve had a boy’s birthday, a man’s birthday, the End of The Year Ceremony for the Girl Scouts, lots of Karate, a school, and two IEP meetings and a bunch of other year-end activities.
This month has been extra nuts as my mother has some medical issues and I am trying to help from an hour an a half away. Yes, I am an exhausted member of the sandwich generation, those of us caring for aging parents and growing children. Yee Haw!!
I have heaps of things I want to share with you. I’m optimistic I’ll regain now that summer vacation is in full swing. I can’t claim 2 hours a day like Wendy, (her kids are older than mine), but I’d be happy with a few hours a week.
I checked the calendar this morning, and we only have one week during the summer where nothing is scheduled. My son has a second solo week while my daughter is at Girl Scout camp. Other than that, we have something all or part of every week.
It’s not as bad as it sounds, we’re not booked solid, just booked steady. I’m actually kind of excited, the kids have lot’s of cool activities lined up. My son has a bike camp, both kids are going to Lego camp, my daughter the, the aforementioned Girl Scout Camp, and we are traveling to Pennsylvania for our second visit to a camp for families affected by albinism. We’ll keep going to karate and skateboarding and spend some time at the lake too.
I suspect the days Will crawl but the summer will FLY!
I promise I’ll be back soon, but until then, here’s a photo summary of where I’ve been for the last month.
