Life has been nuttier than usual, for so many reasons!  It is summer which should be more relaxing but so far has been NON-stop!!  We have made an effort to give the girls a fun-filled amazing summer....I think that it has turned out very fun filled.  Hopefully they agree.  However, amongst all the fun days (all 60 of them) the end is nearing.  AMAZING!
My baby will be going to the THIRD grade...really how?  And she is excited about it.  She wants to try out for the PC (program challenge) classes at school.  I have mixed feelings about it.  It's a lot of extra work (I know she can handle it) but there is so much time to do 'extra work' BUT at the same time maybe it will challenge her and she will enjoy school more.  I am going to let her decide.  She has to take a test to be accepted and if she wants to I will be behind her 1000%!  She is one smart cookie!
My baby-baby girl is getting ready for PRE-K...where in the world (seriously) where has 4 years gone?  So, we have purchased her brand new book bag (all she needs for this year)...and yes she is adorable with it on.  She choose a baby blue with owls, deers and squirrels.  (Which is funny since she was terrified of owls for the longest!)  She is excited for school to start but I have a feeling that her teacher and I will have many phone calls in the future...  :)
And then there is work...oh work!  enough said!  moving on....
Oh and Lucy....
So, I am simplifying things...taking out unnecessary time sucking useless activities.  I am working on list...yes to do list, home list, work list, to do list...  I am enlisting the help of hubby and kids to organize and prioritize my life, cause it's crazy outta whack!
I am excited and thankful for lots of thing.....don't want to just complain.  I just enjoyed a wonderful beach vacay, that was amazing with my family and oldest friends.  I think that I have finally finally began to understand (and put in to play) good nutrition to keep my weight maintained!  Not only because I feel so much better but I am healthier!  I just finished up a 13 year work in progress project with my next oldest friends....we went and saw the LAST Harry Potter movie.....And yes!  we cried, laughed and it was wonderful.  I am glad that after so many years we stayed together.  And I can't wait for friends to visit very soon!  I am also planning a baby shower for my sister-in-law who is due with my very first niece!  YAY!
SO, this is it...the simplification of me...for one month to see how it goes....  Facebook diet, deleting multiple email accounts, unsubscribing to junk mail, trying to do a mid-summer fresh cleaning!  Walks outside, eating on the porch, coloring with the kids, taking pictures, finishing projects, loving my dog, swimming and relaxing!  Maybe I should take up deep breathing exercises as well.  :)
Wish me luck!
