Saturday Stuff

Things are more than a little crazy over here in our overstuffed household.  School started on Tuesday (and you'll notice I haven't even posted Back to School pictures yet, which is absolutely unlike me as they are some of my favorite pictures of the entire year) and I have been getting up at 6:00 in the morning and crashing around midnight and still don't feel I have enough time to do all that needs to be done.

I'm not on the preschool board this year.  I'm not helping with the pancake breakfast.  I'm not doing a lot of the things I did last year, and yet I feel busier than ever!  I guess it's just part of kids growing up.

Anyway, I'm hoping to get my life in better order this coming week.  I'm slowly checking things off the gigantic to-do list I have created for myself, anyway.

One of the things on my list is to announce the winners of the two giveaways I've recently held:

Laura from Living a Big Story is the winner of the book What Language Is by John McWhorter.

Kerri from The Greenhouse is the winner of the lunchbox love notes.

I'll contact each of you for mailing info.

And then I'll be really happy to check that off the list!  (Why did I procrastinate?  That was about the easiest thing I've done all day!)

Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. Back to school is such a fun time---but definitely crazy! Can't wait to see the pictures:)

  2. It is a very busy time for anyone with kids. Sometimes it is the absolute right thing to lessen our obligations.

  3. Back to school is always killer, isn't it? It's always a challenge for the family to settle into a new routine. We've been at it for five weeks now and things are just beginning to feel normal. Happy back to school!

  4. This is something I don't understand, and most likely wont until I am there. How is it you can be more busy with all your children in school than you are with them at home? I just don't get it! I hear that is the way it is from everyone who is in that stage. I guess it is something I will understand when I get there. Good luck getting everything done, and don't forget to take a breather for yourself and your sanity! :)
