Good Time to Change Habits

Connor will be starting 1st grade in a few days.  In the chaos, I managed to get his hair cut by someone other than his 2 year old sister.  I was able to pick up all of his school supplies in one fell swoop.  I bought 4 new shirts for him (all on clearance!).  We even managed to get new shoes for him.  Anything that you can purchase while shopping with small children deserves a huge amount of recognition.  One of these days, at a guild show and tell, I am going to stand up and say "I refused to buy candy for the kids in the checkout line at the grocery store this week.'' instead of showing a quilt...I bet I get a standing ovation.

I remember thinking when he finished school this last spring, that I would be able to get some things done now that I don't have to get up early to get him off to school. HILARIOUS!  Now I am thinking that it would be nice to get some stuff done now that I will be getting up early to get him off to school. My brain fell out when I was a small child, you know, the part of the brain that controls reason.  So now I have to get by with what I have left up there. 

I am going to go take a shower.

Have to say I am not sorry those days are gone. Love my kids but they are a lot more fun now that they are all grown up. I think my brain went into hibernation when the four of them were young.

I'm hoping after my daughter leaves for college, I'll get more done. My son doesn't talk to me as much as she does! Most days I don't shower until 30 minutes before I need to leave the house, sometimes late afternoon. Don't need to go out today? Sweet! I usually manage to throw on some shorts or sweats when I get up, but today I'm still in my nightgown, sewing and blogging. I love my life!

Hi girl! I can't believe it's school time again. Actually I don't think about it at all....retirement is great but I find that I don't get near as much done as when I was working....go figure!
