May, June, July, and August are CRAZY!!!!
So... this is why I'm not posting lately (thanks Gareth for reminding me that it's now June and Mother's Day was my last brief post.)
This week is the kids last week of school. This weekend my mother-in-law is coming up because we are having a child dedication ceremony (UU equivalent to Christening) for Anna. I am really excited and it is going to be lovely at a local park. My church is having it's potluck afterward so we are bringing cake to celebrate!
But, back to why this event is just one in a sea of craziness as far as social/family/creative events go.
I am on the committee to produce NE Ohio's Until the Violence Stops Festival as well as co-planning an event in my area as well as acting in said event. It is on June 23rd because that's when everyone ELSE could do it!!!! I have to go to my niece's graduation party that afternoon, and I had to pass on my sister-in-law's reception, my dear DG's B-day party, another friend's play reading for a new play he wrote, and originally I gave up a vacation that week for the aforementioned reception. So could someone tell me what is in my astrology chart on flippin' June 23rd that EVERY single event had to coincide???? Everyone keeps inviting me to things and inevitably they finish the invite with "on June 23rd!"
But then there's more. I'm taking my oldest son on a little trip for his 13th birthday this month. The next week is the event I'm in/planning. Then the next week we have my family reunion. Then in July we are headed to NJ again to visit Rick's family. THEN we are headed to Ocean City for our first ever blended family vacation. THEN in August we are hosting a big family event for Rick's NJ relatives.
I can't wait for school to start ;)
