Who put that on the list?

So have you all made your "What we are going to do this summer list"?

We kicked off our summer with

1. Spend a few hours at Urgent Care getting stitches.

Macy fell off a kitchen chair, hit her head on the table...spliting open her eyelid, then processed to bleed all over. I took her to Urgent Care and they gave her 4 stitches. She didn't enjoy it at all. They put a rather large bandage on to keep her from pulling them out....Which I'm sure she would. I called home and asked the kids if they had cleaned up the blood. "We couldn't find any paper towels".

2. Buy paper towels.

Summer Scrooge

As mom's across the blogosphere post their list of all the fun and adventurous things they want to do or accomplish this summer there I sat last night with a list of jobs, consequences and strict bed time schedules I was hoping to enforce...Geez Ba humbug Summer I thought...Who am I EboMOMoneezer Scrooge. Where did that one mom go that use to sit down with the kids and make a list of all the fun things we wanted to do while not having to worry about sack lunches, homework, and school night bedtimes.... Oh where o where did that fun mom go.....I'll tell you...she got busy..Lazy summer HA! We still have Cub scout and YW's and Visiting teaching assignments and shopping for clothes, groceries and Vacations to plan for, laundry to do, Walls to paint, Checkbooks to balance, Nutritious Breakfasts, lunches, snacks and dinners to make, Cubs Scouts awards to earn, Personal progress to work on, weeds to pull and a lawn to mow....Oh my!

...So With my mean list on my lap, There I sat and Visited Summers' Past....How I didn't remember all that had to be done...But only the fun.....

and so my Summer motto was Born:

Morning Jobs will be done
& then we'll have some FUN!

(And at 9:30 everyone will retire
OR Mom will Breathe Fire!)

It's over!

So I kinda put myself on a blogging hiatus for the past few months....Why? I can't even remember but I'm sure it had to do with needing to let go of something that didn't really have to be done. I had no guilt while my blog sat still....very still.
Yesterday I came back... Not sure if I really have time but maybe something else will sit while I blog...maybe I'll go on a Dishes hiatus!

My Kitchen got a new color while I was gone!

visitor in the night....

Last night at about 1:00 am Macy crawled into my bed got right up to my ear and whispered "I'm Thirsty". Next time she arrived she whispered "I don't like my Bed"...Then snuggled with MY pillow..MY ENTIRE time she came she said nothing and slipped right between Bill and I and slept..until she woke up Bill and back to her bed she went....Where she still is at 8:30 am! There's nothing I like better than sleeping children ...Wouldn't you agree?
