I promise –
I haven’t fallen off of a truck in the boonies somewhere.
I’ve just been super-duper busy. Getting the girls ready for school, working, taking care of the house and all the other things life throws at me, including SuperMan working two weeks of 65-70 hours (!) for a shutdown project. It’s been a wee bit hectic around here. It’s sort of like the universe is warming up for what it will be like once school starts – revving her engines, so to speak.
And so the blog has suffered.
Because, by the time I finally slow down in the evenings, I’m a little bit like Goldie Hawn in the movie “Overboard”
“buh buh buh”
Yeah, that about sums it up.
I haven’t even done a menu plan! Which, surprisingly, has bothered the girls. They keep asking me why I don’t have one and how are they supposed to know what is for dinner? Little do they know, I have no idea until about 30 minutes before I start cooking.
I don’t like life this way. (although I do like those girlies in that picture. a lot.)
I need my routines. and my structure.
I need to get things back under control.
Right now, I’m just treading water – nine more days until school starts. Then, the new routines will set in and things should “settle” back down – relatively speaking. It will be nuts then, too. Just nuts in a different way. But at least it will be somewhat more predictable.
Until then, I’m just hanging on for the ride!
