This is what's going on with me.
Besides the normal, breakfast, lunch, dinner, football practice, laundry, dogs and family.
This little jewel was delivered on Monday.
It's not fancy and it wasn't expensive. After the move we just experienced, I have decided to save my money on nice things for when we retire and stop moving. My husband did a spectacular job picking this out. It's easy to operate and has a HUGE capacity. I do lots of laundry so I appreciate that.
This is my kitchen table right now:
I'm still doing paperwork regarding Callie's scholarships and financial aid. It needs to kick in soon because we are spending money hand over fist. The calendar is out because I was making appointments for doctors visits, etc. The medical bill is there because we were overcharged for a sports physical and it took two phone calls to straighten it out. That's why I scribbled all over the bill. I keep notes for every phone call. The other folder sitting open is Alex's paperwork for school. We met with the counselor yesterday (finally) and got his schedule hammered out. School starts tomorrow and I think we're ready.
It's unusually warm up here in New England. I would go as far as to say it's hot outside. Before you people in the south judge me, look around. Do you have central air conditioning? If the answer is yes, then ask for forgiveness for the judgement.
Here's what I have downstairs:
That window AC is my friend right now. It's why I spend most of my time right here:
It's obvious that's my favorite place right now because of the laptop on the ottoman and the drink on the side table. (and the dog, always at my side)
I try to avoid the upstairs part of my house right now. Here's why:
Those fans are very nice when it's..oh, in the 70s outside. However, when it's 94, not so much.
With the college girl stress, the football boy's schedule and first day of school looming, not to mention the heat and everyday chores, is it any wonder I'm counting down to 5:00 for this?
Tomorrow, after the kids have been sent away to mold their little minds, my neighbors and I are going to hit the town for some much needed retail therapy and lunch. I can't wait! Don't tell my husband, he thinks we're on a money diet.
