I Think This Is The New Normal

I’ve been trying to put more effort into writing here lately, but this week sort of slipped away from me.  After getting back from our awesome weekend at the lake, we had to jump right back in to real life.  Real life isn’t nearly as much fun.

On top of raging allergies (for 3 of the 4 of us) it has been a busy, busy, week full of things that I just didn’t want to do.  One of those things included sitting at the eyeglasses store with a restless 5-year-old for over an hour waiting for them to replace the frames that have broken a million and one times now.  They finally replaced them free of charge, though they didn’t have the exact same frames available.  They did have a similar style that his lenses would fit in, but black instead of brown.  At least the lenses seem to stay in these…so far.

Then there were more problems at school for Zach, which I’ve been asked to discuss with his teacher next week.  There’s the fight to get homework done every night, the baths, the bedtime routine.  It all just wears me out.  Not to mention the fact that Miss Evie seems to have found her attitude all of a sudden and it isn’t a pleasant one.

On Thursday, Zach was supposed to have his first soccer practice and he was SO excited.  So excited that when he found out it was canceled due to rain, he dropped to the floor and cried.  Poor kid.  I felt really bad for him, but I guess he’ll be extra excited when he gets to have TWO practices next week.

The canceled practice was a bit of a blessing for me, because it allowed me to get the kids settled down a little earlier for bed and I got to actually sit and watch the Saints game with Hubby while simultaneously editing photos and crocheting.  Nothing like multi-tasking!  I’m trying to get a head start on holiday projects this year and the cooler temperatures have really gotten me in the mood to play with some yarn.  I’ve done a lot of knitting in the last few years, but for some reason I’ve been in the mood to pull out the crochet hooks lately.  One project down – lots to go.

This weekend Hubby’s on call for work so we’ll be sticking close to home.  There’s lots of cleaning to be done, the pool at mom’s house to get packed away for another year, and hopefully some time for some creative projects and relaxing.  If I’m lucky I might even get a good run in.  Next week will be another busy one, so I want to enjoy the weekend as much as possible.

And with that, I’ll post some happy weekend at the lake pictures.

Summer Ends Too Fast

The temperatures have cooled down, schools are starting up, and just as we’re finally starting to really enjoy it, summer has to end.  Over Labor Day weekend we took one last trip to my dad’s lake house.  We had an amazing time riding around on the pontoon boat, fishing with the kids, sharing meals, and just spending time together (me winning the game of Scrabble was just a little bonus!).  There’s really not much more to say, so I’ll share some of my favorite photos from the weekend instead.
