 not too bad here, a busy last few days, but the next few should be quieter, just catching up on some housework, maybe decluttering a bit

It's going...my husband is away for work until Friday/Saturday. So, it's just me and the two younger girls. I'm driving to Ms this weekend to pick up my oldest daughter. Should have gotten her 6 days ago...

My SO won't be back until fri night, dealing with hot weather {yuk}. Yesterday was busy with 2 of my grandkids, the same for tomorrow. Then comes the weekend, which is always busy.

I don't know if I'm ready for the week to be over or ready for next week to start. I've been so busy with carting everyone to their locations, trying to fit in my work, housework, errands, etc...I don't know if I'm coming or going.

I swear I'm busier now as a SAHM than I was working 9 hour days!!! How did I do it?!?!

 it has been hot here also, yuk is right, i dont mind the heat really, but the humidity makes it so i just want to keep the house closed up and run the ac 24/7 which my electric company loves, but i do not.

I'm telling you, I felt like a failure yesterday. I spent 30 minutes just trying to get out of the high school parking lot in the morning. Another 25 afterschool. Race to get braces adjusted, Walmart for a gym lock, back to HS for golf application, finally got home and DH calls to say he needs work bag packed. Laundry, ironing, packing...by then it's 730 and we didn't eat so I broke my "we only eat out on Fridays" rule and ordered Chinese.

Considering getting back into freezer and crock pot meals - at least we'll eat well.

It's crazy when he isn't here. :-( eh. I'm not looking forward to the 12 hr drive, but at least we get to drive in the new car(with AC!!!) & I finally get to see my baby girl after 2 months. I can't wait to give her the biggest hug ever!!! She's excited to come home and see our new apartment, & mostly...her new room! lol
