Hey all! I am moving a little late again this morning...it is so hard to get motivated these days. And after about a month of being away from home, reality has very rudely smacked me upside the head. It wasn't unexpected, but it doesn't make it any less painful.
As soon as we landed back in Orlando this past Tuesday, we've been on the move and this will continue through next week. Shopping for school supplies, shoes, football gear, school uniforms, dry cleaning, and even groceries. Dentist appointments, physicals, hair cuts, doctor appointments...all to be squeezed into this two week period before school starts. Plus daily football practices started Thursday, and daily Cross Country tryouts start next Monday (at 5:30am). There is also a very dirty house, a pool on the edge of green, and a back yard overgrown with weeds. The cherry on top is all the lovely summer assignments that still have not been completed! GET THESE KIDS BACK IN SCHOOL! Good Lord.
I've written no reviews, and am attempting to scrounge a few minutes here and there to visit you online. Very little reading is happening, but I am trying so hard to get time with "Night Film", which so far I love with all my soul. What an awesome read! I'm still listening to "This Town" on audio (going on three weeks!) and I'm starting to get twitchy. It is a good listen, but I have a few reservations that is making me want it to be over at this point. I have some reading commitments creeping up on me and I need to move on, but life should resume a routine in the next week and a half.
After church today, my daughter and I will resume our animal shelter duties, and then I'm hoping to steal an hour or two of hanging at the pool and doing some reading. With all my bitching, I must say that I AM glad I am home! What are you all up to these days? Are you still in summer mode or are you getting ramped up for normalcy to return?
