Summer...a season of possibility.

I'm officially on summer break!    I usually crave this time starting in February or March, but when end-July rolls around I'm so ready to be back at work.    But for now, I'm thrilled to have this opportunity.

First, we have our new home.   I have SO many projects I want to tackle.    I'm making curtains for my girls' art room, I need to get my office organized, there's so many rods and curtains and artwork to hang, and I need to go through several boxes and decide what to keep and what to sell or donate.

Second, and most overwhelmingly, I have my girls all summer.  I'm considering hiring a mother's helper a few hours a week so I can accomplish some tasks, write, run errands, or spend time with friends during the day.   I'm also figuring out what I need to work on with Miss E (keep some of her skills up while she's off school this summer) and Baby E (working a little with her on learning some new things).

Third, I need to come up with a flexible schedule for our family----chores, errands, etc.   I thrive on routine, as do my girls, and it makes life easier when managing a home and a family.

I'm still anxiously waiting to hear if a particular publisher wants my book.  And if yes, I'll spend many hours this summer drafting.  I'm also going to submit articles to a few of my go-to publications in order to generate some income.

I can't wait to see what happens in the next few months.   Oh yes, and enjoy sleeping in every morning!  Miss E doesn't have preschool and I'm not headed to work.   Let the relaxation, play time, and possibility begin! 

What are your summer plans?
