Crazy Days

What happened?! I thought I had everything under control. But then things got a bit out of hand. Sorry about letting this blog go stale. I have excuses. 

First off, I decided to look for a J.O.B., a job that pays, something I haven't really had for over 13 years, since the youngest was born. Yikes! Not fun, especially since I let my medical technology license expire in 2004. Ooops.

Secondly, I am the sole "school bus" driver as we were not able to find a carpool for Kevin this year. It feels like I'm ALWAYS in the car. When he had exams last week (half days) I didn't even bother going home. I dropped him off each day and went to a nearby park to read...or walk...or take pictures, then picked him up a few hours later. 

And there's our crazy evenings...2 hours of swim practice followed with hour after hour of homework. Yes, homework involves me. You wouldn't believe how much science and history I've relearned this year. And math. I'm getting pretty good at algebraic word problems!

So, that's my story. 

I might not have done much in the way scrapbooking...but I have pictures from my walks in the park! Enjoy!

What a gorgeous place to spend a few hours during the day. Good luck with your job search. I understand how hard it is all too well.

Definitely sounds busy on your end!
And pretty photos!

I know what you mean. I have been subbing part time (let my teaching certificate expire after my son was born) but not ready to work full time yet. Even the subbing though really adds a lot to the schedule.

I hope things settle down. Hang in.
Oh how I love City Park. It brings back memories of growing up. We will be doing Celebration in the Oaks. I think I love it more now than when it first started. Gorgeous pics!
