You haven't heard from me much the past two weeks. I have a long list of excuses, but that would just be lame. But so you know I haven't forgot about you, I will tell you a tiny bit about what I've been up to. Some of these things will likely turn into posts and tutorials later, but things aren't at that stage yet.
I have been busy, busy, busy, but it's the kind of busy that doesn't produce immediate results so I feel like I haven't accomplished much beyond keeping the floor swept and the dishes done. I can't even say that I've kept up with the laundry. I mustered up all my courage and tackled Mount Laundry-more last night. I still have more tonight to catch up, but I can see light at the end of the tunnel. If you don't know what I'm talking about, I can only say that you either don't have 4 kids at home or you are WAY more organized than I am. Good for you. Please accept a virtual pat on the back.
So, if I haven't been slaying the Laundry Beast, what have I been doing? In addition to church work, home schooling 4 kids in vastly different grades, cooking everything under the sun from scratch, and dealing with the general mayhem of changed plans and real life, I have been mostly planning. I have been planning our summer out a bit to avoid the kids descending into dissipation. I have been beginning my 2013-14 school planning (usually I'm done by now, but it has been a little crazy around here). I have been planning how to organize those last chaos magnets in our home, making vacation plans, etc. When I get my planning finished later this summer, I hope to show you what I did.
In addition to my personal planning, I have also been planning for Mother's Day at our church. Sometimes I like to make something for the mamas in our church rather than just purchasing something. I didn't think I would have time for that this year, but then I saw something that I thought was just perfect. So I am gathering my supplies and will be sure to take pictures. I can't tell you what it is because a number of my readers also attend our church and I want it to be a surprise. Sometime after Mother's Day, I will show you what I did. I know, I know. The suspense is almost too much to bear, isn't it? Try to remain calm.
Hopefully things will be back on a more even keel soon, and I will be able to post some fun stuff, but for now,
