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."
