Trekkin' On

I'm sorry I haven't been around lately nor visited your blogs.  Anybody else feeling the end-of-the-school-year crunch?  Reports are due.  Costumes need to be made.  Field trips attended.  It's all good but just busy.  I'll be going with my daughter on her 4th grade field trip:  a pioneer handcart trek this Friday to aid in Utah history studies.  I'm getting our "pioneer" clothing and supplies ready.

Then we'll be getting up the next morning at 5:30 to get ready for her Irish dance competition that day.
Next in line is making a sea-creature type costume for her 4th grade "opera" which she is dreading.  "It's so embarrassing," she says.  She's looking forward to making the costume, though.

I'm feeling bloated and bleh.  Last week I was roaming for chocolate.  I stopped paused myself and wondered why I wasn't listening to my stop signals.  I checked my calendar and sure enough, I was two days away from "lady time" (as a blogging friend calls it), and the urge to overeat was strong.  I became extra busy and didn't plan very well and my choices were not good.  My body has been complaining about it, too.

How was your Mother's Day?  I have a funny story.  Last Sunday, my youngest needed my help cleaning him after his BM.  So there I am, toilet paper in hand and helping him when he sweetly and sincerely said, "Happy Mother's day, Mommy."


  1. Oh I love that! And I remember those days. And telling my boys they needed to learn to wipe their own before they could go to kindergarten:)

    Yep, crazy here. And my baby is winding down towards high school graduation in less than two weeks!!!!

  2. Oh my, and I think I'm busy now. It's just getting started!

    That story is too funny. What a sweet and innocent kiddo.

  3. Ah, yeah--May kills me every year!! Before we know it, they'll be home and life will take on a slower pace.

  4. I'm not suffering from end of school but lack of anything to write about. Kind of anti-inspirational lately.
