Sheesh! A whole week since I posted? What's been going on that I haven't had time to write about my fascinating life?

Let's see...

1. Every day or so I'm on the phone with the furniture store getting a status on the table repair. The latest is that the repair guys are waiting on delivery of a spray that makes the finish smooth....Ok. Whatever. One day I'll get the table back and we can stop eating on the tiny card table from our tall chairs. It's awkward, but it's better than staring at those spots where the varnish dissolved.

2. Last Sunday it snowed. This Sunday we were all in shorts. Crazy weather.

3. My allergies morphed into a nasty cold and I was out for the count for days. I've got to stop letting the stress get to me. Then I lost my voice. Then the choir director called while I sounded like a frog. Nice.

4. We've been doubling up on school days so that K gets 2 days of work done in 1 whenever we have the extra time. We're trying to move things along so we get done with the curriculum before it's time to start next school year.

5. It seems like we've been extra busy the past couple of weeks. Lots of activities and things going on - some planned, some not. It's just been overwhelming.

This week's calendar is way more clear, which is good because I have got to get some cleaning done. My parents are heading out this way Saturday and the house needs some TLC and elbow grease. Today I washed the girls clothes and swapped out their fall/winter wardrobe for spring/summer styles. Of course, we did keep some cool weather stuff accessible because the cold will come back a time or two before it finally exits stage left. But the work is done - the shorts and t-shirts are folded neatly in drawers, the sundresses are hung, the sweaters are stored in bins, and there's a tub of clothes to go in the trash and another to go to the consignment store. Yep, "organized" is my middle name.

Ok, not really. It's Lynn. "Organized" would just be weird.

As a reward for all our hard work organizing clothes, the girls and I are meeting two other moms and kids and we're going to enjoy the beautiful weather tomorrow while walking around the zoo in our newly unearthed shorts and t-shirts. This means that there will be no cleaning happening tomorrow, but it also won't get any messier. I'm okay with that.

Anyway, if I don't post again this week, just know that I'm probably on my knees scrubbing grout with a toothbrush. Or maybe just taking a nap.

I'll never tell.

Hope you had fun at the zoo. Totally understand on the cleaning thing. It's always likely that I am napping too. Hope your visit is great!!

I've been out of the loop for a little while, I am catching up on blog reading.
