At the end of the day...

I need to unload my camera, so in the meantime I thought I'd share one of the MANY outtakes from my disastrous Father's Day shoot...


At the end of the day today, I'm still feeling rushed
I have an enormous week staring me down, and I already feel like I'm behind!

This weekend, we have our first homeschooling conference to attend. I'm excited, but a tad nervous. There will be lots of vendors there selling curriculum, so I've made a list. Yes, of course, a list. I'm obsessed with lists. I can't hardly move out of my bed without a list, mental or otherwise. So, I spent a couple hours today making a very throuough, itemized list of the curriculum and books I'll need to purchase or order at the convention. I'm a bit worried that I'll get there and feel totally overwhelmed and come home with tons of stuff that I'll never use. Thus, the need for THE LIST!!!

The conference is all day Friday and all day Saturday, but at 5:30pm on Saturday, we have to be at my cousin's wedding. We'll have to leave the conference early, pick up the kids, drive 30 min. home, unload, get everyone stuffed into their wedding clothes, re-load, and drivee 60 min. to the wedding!!
It will go fine, everyone's excited about the wedding, especially Ava. I made her a twirl-y dress for it and she's been dying to wear it. I'll post pictures of it for another "Handmade" post.

So, I spent some time tonight (while Marvin took the kids to Alec's baseball game) running errands pertaining to this weekend. I have to go out one more time, probably tomorrow, and then to the grocery store. A very close friend of mine is heading out of town for several months and I'm hosting a little send-off party for her Wednesday morning during our mom's bible study, so I need to get juice and stuff to make muffins. Anyone got any good muffin recipies?

Ooops, it's midnight! I promised myself I'd be in bed early tonight...I've been hitting the treadmill pretty hard lately, early in the morning, and I'm a little more tired than usual. Well, obviously not tired enough to stay up till midnight blogging!
