1) I'm beginning to realize that school is around the corner and a little bit of panic is rising in my chest as we've never had to get the kids up and out the door by 7:50am on a consistent basis. Any have any ideas on how to start getting the kids (ahem, me) to bed earlier and up earlier to make the transition smoother?
2) I love that my garden is starting to produce! We had fresh garden cukes, jalepenos and raspberries last night. I've been keeping my eye on the watermelon winding its way around my entire garden plot (don't let your imaginations run wild, the "plot" is about the size of a door) and while the plant is huge and overtaking everything I don't see any little melons yet. My thumb has not even a blush of green on it, so I'm thinking the watermelon is a failed experiment.
5) Yay! It's almost the weekend! Plans for this weekend include playing in my parents' pool on Saturday and Jerry's parents' lake on Sunday. Perfect summer weekend in my book - lots of sun, water, and activity so we all come home tired and (fingers crossed) the boys go to sleep without too many shenanigans because I have successfully exhausted them. I find that most of my waking hours are devoted to wearing out the little puppies so they are simply too tired to be naughty.
