A list

As August quickly turns into September, I tried to figure out what I've or we've accomplished this summer and my list is pitiful if you ask me.

- 2 of 3 kids went to Door County for a few days
- all 3 kids went to State Fair
- all 3 kids went to Summerfest and got sunburned
- Darling Daughter got her temps
- Darling Husband has been on furlough for at least 3 months now
- lots of sleeping in by the kids, me not so much
- lots of frozen treats eaten
- our for hamburgers at Larry's Deli with Husband on Fridays (will miss those when he goes back to work)
- My niece got married
- Just got word that my nephew with get married next August
- The end of the week brings my mother in law's birthday along with mine

I think that's it. Like I said, not too too impressive. No big vacations, nothing big bought (didn't have the money) Kept it low key and at home. Here's to a quiet end of August and beginning of September.

Thought I would share..

Since I figured out how to upload pictures from my camera to my new laptop (actually it's almost a year, see I'm slow about things like this). I thought I would share a precious picture of my kids with you.

Here it is....

Almost the middle of August and nothing to show for it. As usual, I'm doing the umpteenth load of laundry, getting the kids registered for school (thank goodness that's done), have to finish school supply shopping, get the 2 boys haircuts, etc.

DH is still on furlough and has been for almost 3 months (if you add up all the days, that's what it amounts to). DH went on a job interview on Wednesday and got a call back for Monday for a second interview, hopefully something good will come of that (fingers crossed!). I wish it would either stay nice (70's and low humidity) or stay hot, this is playing havoc on my skin. Either making it really comfortable for me or incredibly painful (nothing that a good night's sleep and Advil won't cure). Started stitching again and should have a progress picture soon. It would be about a month's worth of stitching (not the world's fastest stitcher by far)

Otherwise, there is no news in my household, just the same old stuff. Hopefully I'll blog a bit more this month, I wish you and yours a safe rest of summer and into early fall.
