So many responsibilities... Next month will slow down, right? Nope. The days just keep filling up. Last Monday I attended my nephew's choir performance. It was nice but long. On Wednesday, I brought my mother to the airport for her flight to California. On Friday, my nephew and I went to his awards banquet for choir. They said it would be 3 hours. I thought it might end early. It ended up being 4 1/2 hours long and I got home at 11pm. My nephew stayed for the all night movie lock-in while I went back to the mobile home and set my alarm for 7am so that I could pick him up at 8am sharp. We loaded up the car with luggage and dogs and drove to the house where I took a nap and he didn't crash until 4pm. Then, I met my sister for dinner. She was driving through on her way to vacation in Texas. On Sunday, I finally tired of looking at my nephew's tattered and paint splattered shoes and took him to Kohl's where for $130 we bought shoes and two pairs of jeans, one black and one dark blue, which he can wear to dressy-casual affairs such as the up-coming wedding of his cousin. The items were on sale but, still, I hate spending that much money on clothes.
Sunday night we drove back out to the mobile home for the last time of the junior year (and hopefully forever if my plans go well). This is finals week until Thursday and then we get to go back to the house for a long time. It will be nice to give my brain a break although I seem to be coming up with all sorts of plans for the property now that it is too hot to do anything out there. Building a deck, planting trees, finishing the skirting... All of that needs to wait for later. What I really need to do is finish painting the barn-shed, figure out how to make the tie-downs tighter (I'm not sure if they need to be tight or not), and put some sort of drip edge over the front door in an attempt to keep rain from leaking in like it did last year.
June is filling up now and I don't even want to think about July because school starts up again in July. So, I will just think about this Thursday, the last day of school, and be happy for a little while.
