What's New?

END OF SCHOOL...... AND THE BEGINNING OF SCHOOL


Things are crazy as always. The girls "graduated" from their former grades a little over one week ago and started their new grades already! We are on year round school so we end one grade, have a week long break and immediately start the next grade. We have been on a year round schedule for several years so are used to this program.

I have shared some pictures of the girls on their first day of school in this post.






WORKIN' IT


Work is extremely busy - as usual. In today's climate who can complain? Plus I love what I do and would rather be busy than slow. Nothing worse than not having enough to do. Of course I usually don't have that problem between, work, home, school and extracurricular activities.


TAXIING


The girls are on the same martial arts, gymnastics and dance schedule. I am still a taxi service in the evenings - ferrying the kiddos from one thing to the next. The only BIG change is that my oldest daughter is starting high school and will now be on a traditional schedule. What that means is that I will have two children on one schedule and another on a different one.


A DOG'S LIFE

The puppy is also keeping us busy - he is pretty much potty trained with the occasional accident. I have noticed though, when I clean the carpets with the steam cleaner, he tends to have more accidents - I think he is re-marking his territory. He also LOVES Miss C. She coddles him as if he were hers alone - it is very cute. Miss N. and Miss E. are a little afraid of him because he is very high strung and has a not-so-small nipping problem. We have all been bitten. I have learned to walk around the house carrying chew toys or pay the consequences.




TV SEASON IS OVER. NOW WHAT?


Now that TV Season is over (and especially now that LOST had the series finale), I have been trying to keep busy. Back to Books......I am reading as I usually do in the summer. I finished "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" and started "The Girl Who Played With Fire". I am also reading "The Help" and after watching Eclipse I am re-reading "Breaking Dawn". I never used to read more than one book at once but I found that as I get older, I am doing this more frequently. I guess what I am reading depends on my mood. Does anyone else do that?????

After I finish the pile of unread novels I have around the house, I will start using my new Kindle. My husband and kids will appreciate that I no longer be buying mass quantities of books that ultimately pile up in every room of the house. Now I can buy these electronically and save money and space.


During the summer we are also enjoying the pool. I hope everyone else is enjoying the summer as well. Here the heat this year has been pretty unbearable and it is just the beginning of July - the previous two summers were fairly mild for this area, so we were overdue for a heat wave. We are keeping cool by enjoying the pool

Here is a shocker....I am behind on my blogging. You are floored, right? I seem to go through spurts of blogging - new one coming up! I have a few things to catch up on this weekend and during the following week. I will be posting a couple of new giveaways and product reviews so make sure to come back! Keep enjoying your summer and thanks for stopping by so I could share a bit about mine with you :)
