The quilt is sitting on a folding table in the living room awaiting a fabric hoop. It has been patiently waiting there since Sunday evening. Although I drew in the design yesterday.
School Starts September 7th around here. I have three orientations/open houses to attend - high school, middle school and preschool - this week. I have already attended a Booster Club meeting for Mr. Cynic's jazz choir. Toots will start preschool in October when she 'ages into' the 2.5 year old program. Thankfully, they are holding a spot for her.
The edits are once again in a holding pattern, because my kids are bouncing off the walls and I am obsessed with a quilt.
Captain Comic is a spinning top of transitioning to middle school anticipation/ anxiety. A case of sick tummies has been making its way through the family in an unpleasant way, too.
Today, I am taking all the kids out to buy sneakers, socks and underwear for the boys. I am setting my goals small and late. I'll go out for school supplies later in the week - if Hurricane Earl doesn't stop by for a visit. In that event, I will go during Labor Day weekend. I take Mr. Cynic for a haircut on Friday. He is currently resembling my older brother circa 1978 with the curl of bangs across his forehead and wings flipping away at his temples. Captain Comic had his cut last week. I never would have survived both in the same week.
I know. I am nuts - school supply shopping on Labor Day weekend. My life is mayhem, and I like it that way. At least the mayhem is somewhat manageable these days, and when it isn't, I throw my hands up, I yell, and I laugh myself silly.
