Busy, busy, dreadfully busy...

We have been busy this summer. I'm not sure what we've been doing exactly. But we've been doing a lot of it. :)

June went by in a blur! Here are some highlights (each of which I intended to blog about but it's just not going to happen):
  • free ice cream at Friendly's Restaurant,
  • scored big time at a Used Curriculum sale,
  • had lunch with Daddy at his office,
  • painted Ellie's room,
  • attended a meeting about the Home School Co-op we will participate in this fall.
July is gearing up to be just as busy! Already we have watched fireworks Friday, July 3 from a nearby beach (see pics of Ben & family), and celebrated the 4th by letterboxing (see pic of Daddys & kids) and picnicing at Beavertail Lighthouse with our friends A2M3.

As I write we are looking forward to:
  • Celebrating our friend, Mia's 4th birthday with a Backwards Party,
  • Going to Maine for a mini-vacation,
  • Attending a tour of our local library,
  • Painting the boys' room.
That's just JULY!!

My August calendar includes:
  • A short visit from my mom,Pediatrician appointment for Sam & Ellie,
  • A Zoo members night,
  • A visit from my brother, sis-in-law and niece,
  • Working on our half bathroom and kitchen,
  • Ellie's 3rd birthday party!
Whew!! No wondering I'm feeling tired!!

Added to all of this is caring for 4 children, a home, a husband and me. Contrary to popular opinion, I do not have my act together all the time. In fact, right now I have laundry in the washer, clean laundry in a basket for several days, dishes in my sink, and piles of stuff everywhere. I have no idea what we will be eating next week.

Basically, my home and family are in chaos. And that's because of me. I'm in chaos. Before this summer is over I need to evaluate and implement some new priorities around here. Or maybe I just need to make my behavior line up with what I say my priorities are.

Regardless, I need to clear my plate of some good things that are distracting me from God's best. For now that's blogging, FaceBook, and Twitter. So, I am officially taking the rest of the summer off from all things computer.

I have a couple of book review commitments that I'll be blogging about and I may hop on here to post vacation pictures, but beyond that I'm taking a break for the rest of the summer.

I'm not unplugging from email, so feel free to drop me a note when you think of me!

See you in Autumn!

Ps. Can you name the video I took the title from?
