Gosh it's late Wednesday already and I've had blogging block. I think the start of the summer has fried my brain a little bit. Matt's in Hawaii (he leaves tonight & gets in tomorrow afternoon) so I've had the kiddies all to myself. We've been to the park a few times, swim team practice, the grocery store, Target, the library, and Evie has Twilight Camp with the Girl Scouts all this week in the evenings. Makes me tired just typing it! Really, it hasn't been bad at all, they're mostly taking it easy on me. Jason napped for 3-1/2 hours today! Sarah, my early birdy, has been getting up around 6:15 which makes me a little nuts, but she's good company that early. The screaming starts around lunch time -ugh. I'm thinking maybe of signing Evie and William up for Vacation Bible School next week too!
What else have I been doing? I've been stalking Craigs List for a desk for Evie, and apparently one for myself too. I'm finding that what I want for her (a solid wood desk, hopefully with a hutch) is a rare find and you have to JUMP ON THEM when you find them! So I'm running in here to refresh the page every 20 minutes or so.
I've also decided I'm taking over a corner of the 'play room' for myself. Because I hate going down there, as there's nothing for me to do. Sorry, I can only play with the kids for so long. So I'm hoping to make some sort of craft/sewing/activity table/center for me to have down there, and hopefully the kids will enjoy it too for puzzles & what not. Might save my carpet from markers, crayons and scissors. I'll post 'before' pictures soon, but here are two versions I'm trying to go for:
I figure if I have my sewing machine out, instead of buried in my closet, I might actually get around to some sewing & mending! Then I can be all crafty like you guys too :) Happy Wednesday!
