Run off my feet...

Thursday, September 12, 2013

Sorry to my spark friends that I have been MIA, you have NO IDEA what I have been dealing with.
Back to school week was challenging to say the least, with the new schedules! BUT ...I got the kids trained to make their own lunches, woot woot!

AND on top of that we went camping last weekend so we were packing for that on top of it all ) among catching up with laundry from our previous week away) and then we came back from camping to find our fridge had died! URGH! I spent a morning throwing out everything! And washing out the bottles etc and putting them in recycling!

Just in time for our last heat wave! Two days of above 30 C weather and I had a teeny tiny bar fridge...that was all, no room for many cold drinks, just the essentials.

Here is a pic from our camping trip:

It was a little chilly on the beach! It had rained the WHOLE DAY the day before...but as luck would have it, pack up day was sunny but cool, and so we spent about 90 minutes on the beach on our way home.

Now I am trying to unpack from camping AND do my cleaning job which has to be done by tonight because of a wedding taking place this weekend.

And this morning I am going to get my second Iron Shot.

And then tidy up the house and get the space ready for the new fridge!

Try to make it to the gym! Well ...I have been so busy, squeezing in cutting the lawn and also trying to get rid of more of that lumber that I was clearing out before.

All in all, almost too much for me, but I am holding up, by the skin of my teeth!

Have a great day!

    Oh poor Mel, you are really swamped. Then for
    the fridge to cark it as well... Nooo! I can imagine
    all the work to clean everything. I hope your new
    fridge lasts you a long time. The photo at the beach
    looks lovely. You look great BTW. Hope everything
    soon settles for you. Have a great weekend. emoticon

    You have seen soo busy! Glad you had at least the little bar fridge to hold some essentials!
    Enjoy your new fridge when it gets there tomorrow - it will be so nice to fill that up with good food!

    The picture made me laugh - we adults dress for the weather, and the kids just don't care. I can remember years ago when I was the one in the bathing suit and my parents were fully dressed and cold.

    congrats on getting the kids to pack their own lunches - that's a major victory!

    What a schedule. Hopefully you get some down time soon.

    Oh this sounds like my last few weeks in a nutshell. I feel the same way you do. Take care, stay sane and thanks for reminding me I'm not alone in all of this.

    No wonder you've been MIA. Glad all is well. Remember, this too shall pass and then life will get back to normal!
