It’s been a really, really busy few months. GOOD busy but tiring just the same. I never really blogged about our Ireland/England adventure and will do so in the next few days..it was awesome. Better than awesome. That 2 week vacation kicked off May, my niece graduated from high school (with an AA!) and my parents visited. June brought lots of family get togethers-Nick turned 24 and we celebrated virtually all day at Oystercatchers- we love a good time and free mimosas 😉 My business, Happy Hounds Petsitting, has had the pleasure of servicing lots of families during their vacations over the summer, I’m writing articles for the Neighborhood News, and I snagged an at-home gig with HSN. Then, in July (in between all of this), I decided a long weekend in Savannah with great friends would be a cool way to usher in Wayne’s 50th birthday. It was….we have some great friends. They didn’t even hesitate to drop what they were doing, rearrange schedules and make it happen.
So, August begins tomorrow and things aren’t slowing down. More dog sitting, more writing, training for HSN and a major upheaval in my home. My sweet boy (who isn’t a boy anymore) will be moving out and going to Texas with his company. A couple of days later my niece will be moving in as she starts college at USF. My daughter is beginning to teach at a new school since she moved to the beach and I hope to help her get her classroom ready for the middle schoolers who will be filing through the doors in just a couple of weeks. My son-in-law is turning 30 (yes, I’m officially feeling ancient) AND did I mention my husband decided to sit in with his dad’s band occasionally as a percussionist? Tres Dias meetings, keeping this house clean and running smoothly, insomnia……oh, what a life.
All is well with my soul.
This is not an idle life. I am meant to be right here.
