And Now it's Friday...

I keep thinking I'm gonna have some free time, but it's just not working out at all right now.

Jillian (10) has moved up to Middle School this year and since we've started back at the co-op it's been a real change from elementary. It's not so much that the work is too hard, but it's just so much more than she's used to doing that she's having a hard time organizing her time. After a couple of really late night (1:30ish) I decided that I was gonna have to step in and help her learn to organize a little better. So that's taken almost all of my free time.

Couple that with the fact that our music director at church is in a singing competition this weekend (3 hours away, of course, so we'll be lucky to get 4 hours of sleep Sat. night) and that we plan to go but have to be back the next morning in time for church because it's our preachers first Sunday back after open heart surgery (which is a story in itself that I'd planned to write, but ... well ... you know how it goes. It's all written in my head if I ever get the chance...).

Oh, and did I fail to mention that we have friends coming in from out of town on Monday for a few days? And it's right in the middle of the busiest time of my week so I have to have everything done in advance? Which includes a huge BBQ on Monday to celebrate the work that God has done in our lives?

I'm not complaining. I'm happier than I've been in years. Just busy. And missing you all. Hopefully I'll be back to "normal" here by the end of the month. And of course, I'll stop in when I can to read and/or update.

Believe me I understand. My son is getting ready to move to Texas and I am very happy for him as it is a great opportunity for him but it has me struggling emotionally. Plus getting school going this year with a HS student, work etc. I know what you mean about it being a good busy too.
I look forward to seeing more from you when you have the time.
Take Care.

We miss you too! But, I know what your saying. Things have been crazy busy. I think this is how it has been for most of the blog moms who have begun school time again. Hope to hear from you soon!!

Hi Michelle,

I just wanted to pop in and thank you for the kind comments left on my blog, and to let you know I am black to blogging again. :)

It sounds like your life is crazy-busy in such a nice way. I'm happy for you!
