accepting the unfortunate truth that teenage angst happens to all of them - mine are not exempt.
sending a ton of photos and projects off to persnickety prints.
lamenting the sad reality that those in-my-head plans for next year will have to be drastically altered.
returning to stratford. five plays in four days. bliss.
celebrating the wind-down of summer holidays and the wind-up of back to school. always a time of wistfulness, fear and challenge.
planning a whole new way of life starting in a couple of weeks. all four kids in the same school - but claire will be living there!
embracing my fitbit!
enjoying the last few days of cooler weather. it probably won't last, but it has been great relief.
keeping control of myself in the aisles of ikea. oh so hard to do!
remembering my promise to myself and the kids to cut back on commitments this fall and winter. no hockey will make that easy!
hoping all of my kids have a brilliant start to their school year.
dreaming of a day when there is nothing on the calendar. (and everything is done - laundry, meals, cleaning, errands).
waiting for the weight to be gone before any new clothes are purchased.
looking around at my still overstuffed house knowing exactly what it is i have to do.
admiring those who manage it all with style, grace and kindness.
searching for the perfect room rug for my living room. i know exactly what needs to be put in the space, i just have to find it!
editing my hobbies, the crazy amount of supplies have to go (part of the overstuffed). lots of big decisions to make.
taking a breather is definitely in order. sometime soon. i'd better mark it down on the calendar or i'll get none!
thanking my family. their support is uplifting and greatly appreciated.
