Hello! Not much to say this week, but here's the look back in the rearview mirror.
I felt really overwhelmed this week when trying to figure out the kids' schedules. On Wednesday alone, we had a volleyball game, soccer game, basketball clinic, soccer practice and swim team practice. Tuesday had been the same, less the basketball clinic. It's exhausting and we do the bare minimum when it comes to kids being involved in sports - one sport per kid per season, no travel teams - but it all adds up quickly. Technically, Declan is playing soccer and now has a once a week basketball clinic at his school because they are trying to prepare a team for the CYO season. Thankfully, a friend whose son is on the same soccer team as Declan offered to bring him from basketball to soccer for me, which is a huge help. The fall is just always crazy, and it's nobody's fault but a young Colleen and amorous Phil, so I am complaining in the mirror.
Does anybody know if Elisabeth Frost's blog is still functioning? I can't seem to get on her website anymore and I don't see her commenting here and I hope everything is ok.
Today at work, my one big annual report is due and I have everything completed on my side but I am waiting for the Town to send me their numbers and it is killing my Type A Goodie Two Shoes Top of the Class Teacher's Pet self. I think I'm going to have to turn it in late!
Tomorrow we will be mailing out a birthday package for our freshman in college and I need to shop for some "fillers" today. And tips on snacks or dorm room ideas would be helpful!
