April is almost over, and I gotta say, it has been a freaking busy month for me! I’ve got a lot of big projects/events/happenings going on in April, and I’m happy to see May just around the corner!
I used to think September was crazy busy with soccer for just one kid, but with both of my kids in Track it’s been non-stop Track events all week long. If it’s not a HS meet, it’s a JR high meet. I really miss cross country because track meets take FOREVER. Sure, I don’t have to volunteer to help out at the meets and stay the whole time, but I think it’s a great way to see everything that’s happening, and help the team.
Although I did secretly hope they would cancel the meet this past week when it was rainy and cold. Ok, I wished it out loud. Still, those kids were freezing waiting for their events so I guess I couldn’t complain too much. I had an umbrella!
I did accomplish the task of replacing a server for my customer, which was a huge task hanging over my head. So glad to get that out of the way! And I had a birthday in the middle of the month.
Of course the biggie was the Glass City marathon, which took up a bit of time in volunteering duties, but ended up pretty awesome. It was time well spent. The final duty was taking down the banners we had put up. Glad it wasn’t raining that day!
Moving on to May, it’s time for the annual neighborhood garage sale, which I not only participate in, but also organize. That’s a huge amount of time getting stuff ready – finding my piles of “garage sale stuff” in the basement, but it’s a good opportunity to declutter. Most of all, I enjoy shopping my neighbor’s sales for treasures!!
And four months into my new job arrangement, I sometimes feel like working at home is even more “work” because I spend my evenings or weekends with my face in my laptop! I wonder if my kids think I’m just watching YouTube videos or something 🙂
At least the weather is finally breaking and it’s time to get the yard in shape. I’m going to allocate that work to Alan. He’s got a lot of free time now that he’s recovering from running Boston!! (another blog post still on my list to write!)
