Tuesday SOC...

It's so very rare that I have any extra time to fill anymore. This afternoon happened to afford me such time, and as hard as I tried to be nose-deep in my book club book for this month, I found my mind racing entirely way too much to read effectively.

So, here I am, rambling on my sweet little old blog.

In one week's time, my girls and I will be reunited with Ty and breathing in the happiest place on earth (Florida ed.)...


The girls are beside themselves about the upcoming trip. It's truly a testament to how much they miss Ty when I continually ask them what's in 8 more sleeps? or what's in 7 more days? and they both exclaim DADDY!!! without hesitation. This trip to Disney World has really become so much more for us.

I am considering renting a lens for our vacation. I am torn between this one and this one. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Soon. I think I need to order by today or tomorrow.

I just uploaded some pictures from my Dad's birthday this weekend and from Tink working on some homework. It's the first time I've uploaded pictures in THREE WEEKS! {Gasp}... Granted, my camera was in for repairs for a while, but I have been in a major photography slump. Hoping vacation will reel me back in...

School is going well for the girls. Sassy big puffy hearts kindergarten and her teacher. Tink is learning new things every day. Dance class has begun with great success, and Sassy has her first Daisy meeting this evening. They are growing up so fast!

I attended a work training last week in Lawrence. It was hard to be away at such a busy time, but having a couple of evenings to myself was a nice refreshing break. I have never felt more ready for a vacation as I do for this one.

While the past six weeks have been extremely busy and extremely challenging, I am proud of myself for the way I have held up so far. It feels like it's been a lot longer than six weeks, and even though I feel like I am drowning in my responsibilities 98% of the time, I feel like I have been a good Mom and that the girls, although missing Dad, have adjusted beautifully. Over anything else, this gives me a reason to be happy and to press on. We can do this!

Glee: Season 2 was released today. I am totally going out this afternoon to buy it.

I have approximately 12 loads of laundry to fold and put away. All of which are currently inhabiting my couch and several upright laundry baskets. Where's that laundry fairy when you need her him?

I am ready to fully embrace the fall weather. These intermittently strewn cool days amidst the still-90-degree-weather are killing me. Softly.

And, here's a random picture from the archives to entertain you this lovely Tuesday afternoon...
