Catching Up

Good Monday Morning!! It’s hard to start a week when I am so far behind in everything….from house work and laundry to my blog posting and emails…and everything in between!

The summer is almost over and I feel like it has just started! The schools here start back on August 13th, only a couple of weeks away! We don’t start back with our co-op until August 31st, but I will be starting some “school” with my kids next week. One more thing to add to the to do list!

I’m happy to say thought that I’m looking forward to catching up because I finally feel better! :-) I think I am finally on the right amount of heart/blood pressure medicine and my body is adjusted to being on it. It sure feels good to feel good again! I’m sad to say that one of my favorite things in life is contributing to my problems….coffee!! :( So I am having to cut back. I hope I don’t have to give it up completely. I’ve always said that I’d rather die than give up my coffee, but when it comes down to it…I think I will let the coffee go…;-)

On to the catching up! I have decided that the only way for me to make some real  progress is to do a small amount in each of the areas I’m behind while doing the daily things like mountains of laundry that three kids brought home from camp!

  I have received some wonderful comments, questions and emails that I want to respond to and I even have some awards to accept! It’s an honor to receive them but I feel guilty for having been such a slack blogger lately! I even have a few things to wrap up from my Garden party….yeah you read that right…told you I was behind! So please bear with me as I catch up a little each day with things!

To start off, I have received the Sunshine  Award from Barb at Barb’s Heartstrokes.

Thank you Barb for the honor!!! The rules are to pass this on to 12 other blogs whose positively and creatively inspire others in the blog world. Well it’s hard to pick only twelve that fit that description! Also, I may be giving the award to someone that has already received it! Here goes:
