CountdownsPosted: August 19, 2013
I’m trying not to think about all the things we have going on. I want to just take it one day at a time, but there are things that need advance planning. And while I am not prone to freaking out, I can shut down and lay on the couch if it all gets to be too much. And let’s face it, laying on the couch may feel good, but it doesn’t help me make much progress.
So what’s in our near future? Here is what I’m counting down to…
9 Days: Sam goes back to school. 2nd grade!
11 Days: Camping trip (not really stressful, but it does take a lot of planning and prep if we are going to eat and not freeze.)
15 Days: Charlotte’s first day of kindergarten.
15 Days: My first day of homeschooling a kindergartener! (Yes, 15 days. I am pretty much a one-woman school board, so I can start school after Labor Day.)
26 Days: Tim inches ever closer to 40.
39 Days: We will be making two major transactions this day; officially selling one house and buying another.
40 Days: Moving all of our stuff in two days. Yikes!
65 Days: Sam turns eight. EIGHT. He’s been making birthday lists and plans since his last birthday.
166 Days: New. Baby. Hopefully all the boxes will be unpacked before then.
So that’s it in a nutshell. So much to do before the move and before the baby. So, so much.
I need to go lay on the couch now…
