Peace and freedom.

I sit here at 9:37 am with nothing I have to do! A BUSY week of camp is done and I can breathe again. The kids are playing nicely!!! together upstairs. I have no daycare and no agenda for today. Wow! I just made myself chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast and will contemplate reading? blog surfing? flylady catch-up? This is strange. There is so much I want to journal about though. It's been another crazy month and since we were up to TBay we haven't really caught up yet. But it will come. One day at a time. And for now I will enjoy the peace - for as long as it lasts!

Suffice it to say that saying that I have/had nothing to do today didn't go over well on the homefront. Not when the garage is a shambles, there is clutter everywhere (albeit somewhat organized on shelving - and hey - I am working on it!) and the plastic bags for recycling are driving someone sufficiently nuts. Lesson learned. It was more that I didn't have a specific deadline for anything right then but have no fear - I do now. Those plastic bags will be out by the morning! And it looks like tomorrow will be a garage day. It may have been short but it sure was sweet! Sorry hun!

Over and out!

Summer BINGO update

Week one is just about over and so far, with a few tweeks I think this is going to work well. It is now 10:00 in the morning and the kids are busy playing with playdough - I didn't think we'd be doing this on the weekend but since Drew is at a golf tournament and the kids are inspired - why not? It gives me time to get Cierra's stuff for camp ready.

Playdates - I had already planned some for next week so I let that one slide
We were gone for the majority of a few days so I'm going to make some squares a little easier to accomplish.
Definitely the 9-5 thing - otherwise they are out of sorts for the bedtime/ regular routine.
LOVING the reading squares - at least with Matt. Got to get Marlee more motivated!

Speaking of camp - Yikes! It's only 2 weeks a way and staff training is on Wednesday. We just discovered we are a few counsellors short so we're not sure what we are going to do. Ratio-wise techinically we are okay - just not able to spilt the kids up the way we like to do it. I'm also doing this curriculum for sunday school so hopefully I will be on the ball for the activities. Now if I could just find that DVD........!!!!!


Getting back into the swing of watching some movies (so much to see, so little time!)

We watched Twilight last night - I was pleasantly surprised. I wasn't too sure about thewhole vampire thing but it was more about the teen angst. We had a few good laughs. Oh to be that caught up in love!!! Poor Drew - he is so much more the romantic then me!

(I think I do want to read the books now though!)

Tonight we watched P.S. I love You. I had heard it was quite good but while I enjoyed it, it icertinaly isn't on my Top 10. Granted I was distracted (preparing sunday school curriculum) but it really just didn't "Grab" me. Oh well - we'll see what else is next.
