What do they say about making plans?

“If you want to make God laugh, tell him about your plans.” Woody Allen

Yup.  I made plans.  Plans to have a relaxed summer of winding down work.  Then not working after that.  Well, working very hard, but not having an external job.  I made that plan.

Then the world had other plans.

I got offered a job. A really great job.  One that I couldn't pass up.

So I didn't.

Now I'm working two jobs - three really.

I'm trying not to be overwhelmed.  In the end this is going to be good for our family even if is wasn't part of my plan.

This summer is going to be extra busy, but I think by the fall everything will level out.
I hope so at least.

Hoping - NOT planning.

Here that world?!  NOT A PLAN.

Please don't start laughing again...

Trial run

Today was the first day of our summer schedule. We have a morning activity planned almost every day. If it isn't a library story time it is a trip to the YMCA. The goal is to be out if the house doing something by 9 everyday.

Today was our test day. 

Library story time, lunch, playtime, quiet time/naps, painting, then a walk with friends and back to make dinner. It was a busy day but it was great!

Seriously. Today is giving me hope that I'll be able to do this stay at home mom thing. 

I'm do thankful for this opportunity to be with my wonderful children. 

Test run = success!
