The to do list just gets longer and longer here these days. I'm just trying to keep my eye on the prize - a lazy summer. But between the end of school tests and assignments, thinking about moving, stressing about getting everything packed, and everything else that is part of our everyday life, I have to admit that I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed. Part of it might be that I am absolutely obsessed with this rug. I think I have figured out a decent technique to get it to lay fairly flat (more on that later). Another part of it is that I haven't hardly packed anything - moving day is still more than a month away, but the last two times we have moved, I started packing two months ahead of time - just a few boxes everyday, but it really helps ease the stress of looking at all of your stuff and thinking about getting it to another place. And another part is the literally dozens, possibly hundreds, of decorating and improvement ideas floating around in my head and not really having the time to get to them right now. It's all going to be OK, right?
And it might seem that I've been obsessively acquiring thrifted sheets (this is not even close to being all of the ones I've purchased in the last few weeks) - I can't seem to say no to them now that we are moving to a town without a thrift store. We'll still be going into town at least weekly for Peter's speech therapy, but we'll have other errands to run then and I can't guarantee that I'll want to take the boys with me to the thrift store. I also scored a few more embroidered pillowcases to add to the collection. One of those ideas floating around in my head is a banner from them to hang in my sewing room. I think this time I will actually get to it since I have a place to put it.
Anyway...we are off to get Peter registered for Kindergarten today...something else that is totally stressing me out because I'm not sure how my little babe got old enough to go to kindergarten!
