You know that wonderful feeling you get when you put your hand in your pocket and find forgotten money? I usually don’t find more than a dollar, but it’s still exciting.
Today I was organizing my purses in the large, clear bag that I store them in and thought I would check each one “just in case” there was a President hiding out. No money, but I found a pair of Brighton earrings and a gold ring tucked away in a small backpack. I have a vague memory of loaning the earrings to the daughter that owns the ring, but not enough of one to blame misplacing them on anyone but myself.
Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. ~ Matthew 11:28
I’m hitting the road this morning to vacation with my mom and the girls. We’ve got a seven hour drive ahead of us on the first leg of our 15-day trip. I’ll share more when we reach our destination. If you think about it, please pray for us as I’m sure the interstate will be busy this holiday weekend.
It’s been a little while since I’ve posted, so I thought I’d give a quick update. We’ve had a great summer. The kids have enjoyed staying up late and sleeping in. They all went to our church’s summer camp out in the woods. We spent the most relaxing week ever at a condo on the Gulf coast. I could have stayed there forever.
I think my friends up north have over a month left of summer break. We start back to school on August 20, so the kids have just over two weeks left to be lazy. I actually won’t be going back to school with them. I officially hung up my principal hat at the end of July. I’m sure I’ll still have plenty to keep me busy, but I am looking forward to the change of pace.
There are some really good back-to-school sales right now during Florida’s tax-free weekend on clothes and shoes. I have some $10 off coupons for Ko*hl’s and hope to find the tennis shoes for all of the kids there. Wish me luck!
- Bookworm and Curly Girl both did well at their piano festival, although we’re still waiting on their scores.
- It is feeling more like summer than spring, but we’ve still been getting a cool breeze in the evening which brings temperatures down into the 60’s. I hear thunder rumbling in the distance as I type.
- I’ve been planning our annual Mother’s Day luncheon, which is just a couple of weeks away. I’m really excited about this year’s guest speaker; she is a riot!
- My blogging friend Liesa @ Life by George recently hosted a giveaway, and I won! Liesa rushed me a package full of goodies. She did a great job of picking out some personalized items that were just perfect for me.
Happy 2011! I didn’t post anything during the Christmas holidays. It was nice to take a break from “everything” and enjoy time with my family. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas as well. Best wishes to you for a very blessed year!
