I could not have crossed those last two off the list without the help of Grandma and Grandpa Mac and I got them in just under the wire. Thanks again!
Whew! I scheduled all of us up to our eyeballs. Don’t worry the kids still managed to watch too much TV and play too many hours of video games.
It was a good summer. It kept me (us) busy and helped the time go by quickly. By the time school started, however I was exhausted and for the first week or so I just sat on the couch and watched TV.
Now I’m looking forward to Autumn and my plate is filling up fast plus I a have all the things that didn’t get crossed off the summer list. I’m not complaining. Anything that helps February get here a little quicker is a good thing. I’m thankful to have lots to do.
