Here it's halfway through July and I haven't been blogging a thing! What kind of writer/blogger am I anyway? And overwhelmed one, perhaps? Seems like I've been running like a chicken with my head cut off since the last day of skool and I still haven't caught up. With that in mind I think I shall dedicate one post on updates, that is, if anyone's reading my blog anymore!
Kiddies - Been keeping them busy, going here and going there with things like the library, playing/walking/swimming, the beach, playdates, some crafts and visiting friends/relatives. Trying to keep them away from too much computer and too much TV. Trying to read every day to complete pledges for the summer reading program at local library. They have been rebelling frequently and moan and groan over simple things like going to the store! When does skool begin?
House - The market is sooo slooow. I do feel relieved that it's not only our house, it's all over. Of course, if we drop the price to $1.98 then the house will sell tomorrow. I don't think we're going to lower the price that much (although that's what buyers are expecting - greedy buggers) and we're going to keep trying to sell.
Job/s - Nothin' honey. My freelance work has slowed to a crawl because of summer and kids at home. Hopefully it will be picking up again in September. And there's not much out there anyway. When I do see a great job it either requires loads of experience that I don't have yet or I see an okay job for which I have too much experience. I haven't been able to find a happy medium!
Anything else I'm forgetting? Not really. Life in the summer seems to slow down, although my days are always busy with caring for my family. I still try to make an effort at my various organizing projects - striving to keep on keeping on. Oh, and I really should get back to my flowerbeds, but, quite honestly, just have been feeling lazy about doing backbreaking labor under the scorching sun! (hee-hee what a slacker) We are planning on taking a small family vacation and then it will be time for the kids to go back to skool.
Wow! Life can't get any more exciting than this!
